Day 15 Delicate Print – 31Challenge

I am excited about two new polishes I recently picked up, “Sally Hanson – Blizzard Blue”, (for those of you that don’t know my four-legged son’s name is Blizzard- see My About page). And “Mint Sorbet”.

Here is an update from my flower manicure, which unfortunately lasted merely two days. I think the issue was that the top coat was too thick, it cracked from my nails bending, and eventually peeled away 😦

Here is a picture of some bubbling, and a crack.

Here is a side view of the peeling of the top coat 😦

Next time I’ll try a different top coat.

Anyway, the next day of the Nail Challenge is Delicate Print. My interpretation of delicate print is, a feminine or dainty color, and small simple design. I went with “Ulta – Ginger Peach” and then used a water decal of a little swirl design on my ring fingers.

Not much more to say, so here’s the final look 🙂

Day 14 Flowers – 31Challenge

Friday has finally arrived,I feel like its been forever since I’ve posted.. 😦

The next day of the Challenge is flowers. I chose to do a real flower manicure. I found these beautiful little wild flowers by my work, Veronica.

I painted 2 coats of “Julep – Carrie” as a base before work this morning. I will warn and apologize now, in all of my pictures I have Top Coat and polish on my fingers!! ahh In any event, My husband and I picked fresh flowers on the way home from work today. I painted a little bit of top coat on each nail & pressed the flower down and topped with my “Orly Polymer Top Coat”. I purposely did not make the flowers all centered on my nails, some were in corners, some dead center, off-center etc. I loved doing this unique manicure.

Here is the final look:

Here is a closer look at my right hand:

And my favorite nail. I really loved the way this one came out:

This look was fairly easy, but I will be honest I have never worked with real flowers before, so I am not quite sure how they will ware. I am hoping that the Polymer keeps it well. I will only have the look on my nails for a few days anyway. I have to thank my husband for this awesome and beautiful idea! ❤
