Day 1 Red – 31Challenge

This the first day of the Challenge, again remember for me, these looks will not be every day. I will be posting every couple of days, either when I get bored with the look or it starts to chip.

This is one coat of “e.l.f.’s Medium Red”

Two coats

This color is very light so I felt that I needed three coats as you still saw my nail

I then decided to paint my ring finger with the “NEW Spoiled by Wet n wild – Designated Driver” Yellow. This polish was awesome because it was only $1.99 but I felt it was harder to work with. It has a nice wide brush but it attracts a lot of polish to the brush. hard not to do thick coats. Seemed to take a little longer to dry as well probably as it was hard not to do thick coats, The picture above is 2 coats.

I had some address labels that I cut down and put it on my nail, I wanted to do a color fading effect with different shades.

I used “Spoiled by Wet n Wild – Don’t be cheesy” orange on the remainder of my nail then when dry used the red again on tip

This was Day 1 of the 31 Nail Challenge , hope you enjoyed!

NOTD2-Ladybug Breast Cancer

I participated in the Avon Breast Cancer Walk in NYC in October 2011, so this was my look for that weekend. I used my “OPI Base and Top Coat” then my “e.l.f. – light pink” for this look, as well as my “ladybug breast cancer water decals”

I like to use different water decals from time to time. You can find a lot of different designs of these decals on eBay. I purchased these Decals from the seller: Ebay Store

The decals are fairly easy to use. They comes in a strip of 10 usually, you cut out as close as you can around the image. Once your nail is painted and DRY, put the decal you cut out in water for 30 seconds. Take the decal off and slide onto dry nail. These are not sticky decals so you can slide into place.

Hope you Enjoy and find some inspiration from this look!
