Hi Everyone! It's been a while..too long really! I have spent the last 10 days doing the second part of the 31 Day Nail Challenge. I probably should have posted everyday as this part of the challenge has more to it and would be more interesting. This is going to be a long post so i'll get right into the pics :)
First up is Day 11: Polka Dots OPI Siberian Nights stamped with Ozotic 532 (mish mash) and DRK-A XL Plate. I went back in with a dotter and made the large dots brighter. This was cool because the polka dots were duochrome and holo!
...China Glaze Aquadelic stamped with China Glaze Harmony & Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Pronto Purple. Used DRK-C XL Plate. I added both colors to the image so it would look almost like a duochrome effect. I liked it but then anything good looks against CG Aquadelic...the most awesome color ever! ;)
...OPI Tomorrow Never Dies (2 coats) stamped with Sinful Colors Dream On and Konad M78 & M57. Seriously love how bright this was !! I didn't want to take it off!!
OPI Black Onyx stamped with Nfu Oh 64, Nubar Reclaim and BM 313. Of course I had to have holo flowers! Really love how this turned out :)
Butter London All Hail The Queen stamped with BM 314 and Wet'n'Wild Black Creme.
....CG Running in Circles as a base and then Zoya Tangy and OPI Sprung in a saran mani. Then I stamped CH IX with DRK-B plate..a cool totem image. This was my second attempt at this and I still wasn't pleased but I wasn't doing a third!
...2 coats of China Glaze Frostbite and 2 coats of OPI Last Friday Night...love this combo together! The bright blue really makes that pink opalescent glitter jump right out!
..Used OPI Black Onyx and China Glaze White On White as the base coats, then applied them to opposite nails with french tip stickers. Next step was to add a topcoat..let dry..apply french tip stickers and paper reinforcements over exposed color..then stamped with Konad White & Black using DRK-C XL Plate. Then went in with a dotter tool (smallest tip) and applied OPI Big Apple Red. I really LOVE this mani ♥
...I was dreading doing this mani because for some reason I thought it was going to be sooo hard...NOT! I also didn't think i'd LOVE it this much and NEVER want to take it off!! lol I used OPI Black Onyx, A-england Order of the Garter, Zoya Tallulah, China Glaze Gothic Lolita, White on White and Fairy Dust. I looked all over Youtube and this was the tutorial I followed because it was quick, simple and I loved the colors used. I'll post the link at the bottom of the page :) I should also add that I used tiny sponges instead of the big one she used..I had no clean up because I stuck with the little ones and I just found it easier to add small amounts of color that way.
..Oh boy the fun...NOT! Getting the hang of it isn't fun but when it all finally comes together it's nice! I tried this a few times before I got a decent combination. I'm also super happy I got smaller lines cause that's what I love when I see it on someone else. I used Essie Tart Deco, NOPI My Lifesaver and CG Fairy Dust as a topcoat.
