Some News and Some Manicures

Hello! I haven't given up on the 31 Day Challenge, in fact the reason for my absence is that I recently broke my right arm. Because of this I'm having to go on a bit of a hiatus. It's a real bummer because I had some fun things planned for the rest of the challenge. I obviously won't be able to paint my nails for a little while, so here are a few manicures that have been sitting in my draft folder for quite some time.

31DC2015: Pink and Aqua

 Today's theme is pink and aqua. For my manicure I decided to go with a skittle design. I used Essie Mint Candy Apple for the aqua, China Glaze Feel The Breeze for the pink, China Glaze Rich And Famous for the flower details, and Zoya Josie for the leaves. This is definitely my favorite manicure that I've done so far!

Hello! Day three is water spotting. My spots didn't turn out very neat, but I think they still look pretty cool! The base is China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond and China Glaze New Birth. For the spotting I used China Glaze History Of The World.

31DC2015: Tape Manicure

Day two is tape manis! I love using tape, it's my go-to whenever I'm short on ideas for nail designs. Here's what I came up with for today! The pink is China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes, the light blue is Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau, and the dark blue is a mix of China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond and Sinful Colors Endless Blue. The glitter on my pointer and pinky is Color Club British Invasion, and it is my new all time favorite glitter.

31DC2015: Follow A Tutorial

Hello! I've decided to attempt a new 31 Day Challenge for the month of January. You can find out more about it here. I already know that there is no way that I'm going to be able to complete every single day, but I'm going to try to get as many done as possible. The first day is follow a tutorial. For my manicure I follow this tutorial in order to do this neat foil design.
