30 Day Challenge

5 Jul

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.

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!

Tried a seaside landscape. Mixed results in the palm tree, but the background looks good.

Saw this on Pinterest. It turned out great. This picture was taken a few days after application, so the tips are a little chipped. But it still looks cute.

Mu sister is in town and she let me give her a manicure. After the relaxing massage part she chose a design. We found one on Pinterest I was able to (somewhat) duplicate. I included some accents; a starfish and a crab.

So I did a craft project which required spray adhesive. The only way to get it off my hands was nail polish remover, which of course meant I had to redo my nails!
