Day 3 – Yellow

Day 3 – Yellow

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismay, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  -Isaiah 41:10

I know I write a nail blog, but it’s been a difficult week and My Father is with me and I wanted to share The Comforter with you. Now the nails.

Today I was babysitting and we did nails. It was…interesting. You paint the nails of 3 four year olds (and a 10 yr old) and see how you do. Each of them chose some form of sparkle and one had me do a heart on each nail. Each in a different color. But they also repeatedly said they loved it. :-)

For me, it’s on to Day 3- Yellow. The Pinspiration I found has polka dots which are so easy and yet so pretty.

I will not list all the colors I used on the girls. Not only because it’s an exhaustive list, but because there were so many I can’t remember.
Here are mine:
Yellow: China Glaze, “Happy Go Lucky”
Black: Wet ‘n Wild, “Black Creme”.

Day 2 – Orange

Day 2 – Orange

So I started my day 2, which is orange. I did a gradient nail, which I only ever tried once before and didn’t turn out very well. What I discovered was that you have to get the right sponge. You need one that is not very dense. It went very well, though a little messy. It did require a tad bit of clean up.

As you can see it requires some work around the edges. But it turned out great. I didn’t feel like doing the sparkle void heart, so I just did a layer of sparkle on an accent nail. It works.

Colors:
White: Nina Ultra Pro, “French White”
Orange: Sally Girl, “Pumpkin”
Sparkle: Pure Ice, “Dazzle Me”

Day 1- Red

So day one of my 30 Day Challenge was “Red Nails”. I really liked the one I found on Pinterest, which you see here.

For mine I did two coats of Sally Hansen, Diamond Strength – “Something Borrowed”. Then I did a stroke of Sinful Colors, “Ruby Ruby”. Once that dried I did an alternating stroke of Color Club, “Red-ail Gypsy.”

30 Day Challenge

30 Day Challenge

So I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile just never got around to it. I’m really looking forward to it and I hope to have some fun. I don’t plan on a daily thing, as I usually like to give the nails a couple days wear. But it’s the order I want to follow. The list I found is from a couple years ago, but I liked the assortment and arrangement.
My 4th of July nails will be around another day or two so stayed tuned.

Happy 4th, 2015!!

So I adapted a design I saw. Basically I just added more glitter.
The base coat is Sally Hansen -Diamond Strength – “Something Borrowed (#215)”. I love this color because it’s very close to my natural nail color and always looks nice.
The reds I tipped with Sally Girl, “Red Glitter “. This is from their winter/christmas line.
The white tips are Nona Ultra Pro. “French White”; the blue tips ate E. L. F. , “Sea Escape”.
I topped all these with two coats of Wet n Wild, “Kaleidescape”, followed by a layer of Sephoa, “Flurry Up!”.

Take the time to read the 10 amendments. You might be surprised. And it is your duty as a citizen to know them.

Happy 4th of July!
