Day 11 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Beach

DSC_2934

I did it, I finally did it! I nailed gradient nails! Yay!!! It’s taken me MONTHS!! This makes me so glad I decided to do this challenge! Thanks again to Posh Alcoholic  and Mommy Loves Nail Polish for setting this up! I watched a great video on you tube on how to do this manicure and I just followed it step by step. I also checked out this great step by step picture tutorial created by my friend Lekker Lacquer here. I used a make up sponge for the gradient instead of the black nail art sponges I previously used. Then I used my thin black nail art polish and drew on the palm trees. And now, with these nails, I feel I need to be holding a cocktail! 🙂 DSC_2937 DSC_2940

I got the idea for this mani from a google image search. Here’s the original image. I really like how it turned out! When I was painting my nails there were so many bottles on the table lol!  And I gotta give some credit to my fiance Greg who suggested I stamp over the bright colors (sometimes he likes to butt in and give advice when I’m doing my nails lol!) 4Colors used, Sally Hansen Lightening, (yellow) The Face Shop, Face It  (blue, peach, orange and light purple), Prorance (green), OPI Color So Hot It Berns, OPI Red Lights Ahead . . . Where? OPI Strawberry Margarita, OPI Fly, OPI Lourve Me, Lourve Me Not. BM plate 313 and White Konad stamping polish.

Day 8 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Jewelery

1

I don’t know if it’s because I live in Korea or what but it’s so easy to find nail bling here! These cost less than a dollar and are in all the beauty stores. So, I gotta admit this manicure took about 10 mins to do! Yay for the easy ones! I got the stickers from Etude House. It’s a great chain of beauty stores they sell everything from make-up to nail art products all for really cheap.

The one bad thing about these jewel stickers was that they curled up at the ends. It was like they didn’t want to bend! I couldn’t get them to lay flat so I took them off after I photographed this mani. Anyone know how to get around that?

The base polish is Eclipse 103. 2 3 4

Day 6 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Sun

DSC_2767

I was kinda stumped when it came to the sun theme. I wasn’t sure what to do then I decided to go with a  solar flare type theme. I used OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns and then using clingfilm I dabbed Sally Hansen’s Lightening over it. I like how it turned out. The pictures with the bluish tinge were taken using daylight. The others are from my light box  I’m having some color issues at the moment with my camera so I’m experimenting with different light etc. DSC_2774 DSC_2809 DSC_2822

Day 5 Pre-Spring Challenge Constest Sky

1

So far this is my fav mani of the challenge. I started off doing daytime skies then decided night was better. These remind me of my galaxy nails but I think these are more subtle. I sponged the clouds on. I dabbed glitter polish over them to make them seem a little more shiny.

Here’s what I used, Essie, ‘blanc’, Ciate, Powerdressing, Face It light blue  polish. Sally Hansen’s Something Blue for the glittery effect on the clouds. 2 3 4 5 6best
