31 Day Nail Challenge – Day 31 – Favorite challenge

I am packing for a weekend down the shore, so I will make this quick 🙂 plus this post was already technically done before in detail.

So I asked my viewers what look they wanted recreated for this day and the vote was the nails inspired by fashion. Well, here it is. I did a little twist from my original post, not too much difference. Rather than doing straight diagonal lines, I used my manicure tape pieces and did a half diagonal curved line and on my thumbs a regular curbed manicure tip. Polishes used were “Sinful Colors – Blackest Black” and “Julep – Emma” Enjoy!

P.S. … YAY my nails are getting long again =)

On a side note.. since this was such a short post. I also did my toesies with my new gems. I painted with “Essie Vermillionaire” and a flower stamp with “L’Oreal Violet Vixen” and deep pink gems in the center of the flowers. This was done on my big toe the rest were just plain orange.

Day 25 Inspired by Fashion – 31Challenge

I will start with an update on my nails, they are growing slowly but surely 🙂 not complete stubs anymore, on another note, I cracked my big toe nail right up the side so the one of those is all short now… ::sigh::

For the Fashion Inspiration, I chose Stella McCartney. I love how she uses a lot of black sheer with black polka dots in her “little black dress” looks. I found a couple of her looks to show you my inspiration, that can be seen by clicking here.

Here is my look :

For this look, I painted the “Julep – Emma” in the morning before work so that it had plenty of time to dry as I planned on using the taping technique. Then last night, I did one nail at a time and topped it off with “Seche Vite’ ” so it dried right away and I could move on without having to worry about smudging it. I put a piece of tape, (actually I use address labels and cut them, same thing), on my nail. I did my pinky and Ring Finger points facing each other and my pointer and middle, facing each other. Once I was done with the tape and black, I used my dotting tools to make different size dots and topped it off with the top coat. All of the nails used the same technique. For my thumb, the only difference was, since I did two angles, I put a little “Seche Vite’ ” over the first diagonal and came back to it, so that I could put tape on it without having to worry about it ripping the black off, and did the other angle, and dots same way.

The Colors I used were, the “nail-aid – Peeling Nail Base Coat”, “Julep – Emma”, and “Blackest Black by Sinful Colors” The top Coat I used was “Seche Vite'”
