A Walk In The Park

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great Christmas yesterday and are having a great Boxing Day today too. I wanted to share my second manicure for this month's inspired by art theme for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. I was inspired by a gorgeous artwork of a park with lush greens and vibrant colors. Also, I wanted to mention that I now have a instagram and twitter account if you want to follow me over there.

Essie, American Apparel, Sephora by OPI, Born Pretty Store Sweet Color, China Glaze, Jessica, Nicole by OPI

I started with Essie Borrowed & Blue on all my nails. For the design, I used American Apparel Raccoon, American Apparel Downtown LA, Sephora by OPI Blue Grotto, Born Pretty Store Sweet Color black nail art liner, China Glaze Starboard, Jessica Tangerine Dreamz, and Nicole by OPI Hit The Lights. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off for Born Pretty Store. For tools, I used some makeup sponges, a dotting tool and a toothpick. For this design, I decided to skip top coat because I wanted the textures to be noticeable just like the artwork I drew inspiration from.

I love how my middle nail turned out even though its just incorporating the colors in the art I was inspired by. I'm a little disappointed with how the trees turned out though since I first tried dotting it then I went to sponging it. In the end, it turned into a bit of a mess. I still love the colors in it though. What do you think of this manicure?
