31 Day Challenge ( Colors )

Hi everybody! Instead of posting everyday of the challenge I thought I would break it up into 3 categories and hope all the pictures fit in one post! Some days have more than one pic because it's reallly hard to pick just So on with the pics! Hope you like :)

The first one up is Day 1: Red Nails..this is OPI Big Apple Red (2 coats). Amazing crelly formula..amazing shine..THE perfect red :)

 Day 1: Red Nails (cont'd)...So I stamped over it with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Wined Up & DRK-C XL Plate
 Day 2: Orange Nails...OPI A Roll in the Hague (2 coats). A bit thick but still manageable and leveled nicely. This is THE perfect orange! Bright, shiny...what more could you want? ;)
Day 2: Orange Nails (cont'd)..Layered Glitter Gal Orange Sparkle over the above orange because I wanted to share this baby but not use it all!! Oh how I love GG!! This is more of a coral leaning orange by itself but paired with the intense beauty above it was perfect orange holo/sparkle!
Day 3: Yellow Nails..NOPI Ladies in the Limelight (2 coats) layered with Essie Pure Pearlfection. A match made in yellow heaven if I do say so myself ;)
 Day 4: Green Nails..Started out with 2 coats of China Glaze Near Dark (the perfect blackened army green), layered HITS Borealis..ended up looking a touch too gold so I layered Glitter Gal Deep Green Sparkle and it was green perfection!! Definitely enlarge this photo!
 Day 5: Blue Nails...Layla Metallic Sky. Certainly could've done lazy I guess :( The magnet on this SUCKED! First and last Layla I will ever pay full price for.
Day 6: Violet Nails...Zoya Malia (2 coats) purple this color! Stamped with China Glaze Harmony & DRK-B XL Plate. Love how this turned out!
 Day 7: Black & White Nails...Glitter Gal Black Sparkle (2 coats). Perfect formula! Great holo/sparkle but it just would not photograph properly with the white over it :( Stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White & DRK-A XL Plate.
 Day 7: Black & White Nails (cont'd)...Zoya Storm and piCture pOlish atomic. First needle mani ever...easy to do but still need some practice. It looked like pink and black in the sun..
 Day 8: Metallic Nails...Color Club Hot Like Lava (2 coats) sponged at the tips with more Hot Like Lava but it ended up looking silvery pink..the sponge took all the hot pink out!
Day 8: Metallic Nails (cont'd)...Hot Like Lava stamped with Rimmel Zing & Cheeky XL Plate B, then stamped again with China Glaze Joy & Cheeky XL Plate B ( different image). Turned out cool but toned down the hot pink...
 Day 9: Rainbow Nails..Started out with Orly Au Champagne (1 coat) sponged with ( bottom to top) OPI Call Me Gwen-Ever, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightning, Essie Mojito Madness, OPI Dating a Royal, China Glaze Grape Pop and Orly Frolic. I added some China Glaze Fairy Dust as a topcoat. I was dreading doing this one but it turned out better than expected..sort of ;)
Day 9: Rainbow Nails (cont'd)...another angle..
 Day 10: Gradient Nails..Orly Frolic (2 coats), sponged on Sinful Colors Dream On, then China Glaze Creative Fantasy. This is SO much brighter in person but as you likely know it's super hard to get a decent photo of neons.
Day 10: Gradient Nails (cont'd) I added Ninja Polish Alexandrite for a little extra something.
So that's it for the first part of the up is the Patterns section of the challenge. Hope you liked :)
Bye for now ;)
