Week 9: Rainbow Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’m back for this weeks #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge..this week the theme is Rainbow nails. I normally don’t do rainbows..I tend to use a lot of colors but never rainbow themed. I was inspired this week by a manicure I did years ago when I was first adventuring into nail art. It turned out a really well for not having a lot of experience with dotting tools or nail stripers. I did a cupcake manicure..here’s the picture.

So for this weeks manicure I decided to do pink nails with colorful polka-dots. I used Pink Velvet by Sinful Colors for my base color..it’s just a pretty medium pink with texture. The downsize for this polish was it chipped easily. For the polka dots, I used Purple POP! by Salon Perfect, YOLO Yellow, Mint Chip, and Candy Heart all by Sinful Colors.

Week 8: Metallic Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! This weeks manicure theme for the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenger is metallic nails! I’m still out of my groove a little and couldn’t think of anything to do..so I went simple & easy..just like last week.

I recently bought the color Taupe is Dope by Sinful Colors and I’ve been dying to use it..it’s a brown, plumy, gray color..very fall like. I thought it would go great with bronze for the metallic portion of the manicure. I used Nicole by OPI’s It Starts With Me. It’s a very shimmer shiny bronze.

I just applied taupe is dope to my thumb, index, and pinky nails..and then applied it starts with me to my middle & ring nails..then I used my dotting tools to do dots down the middle of a few nails.

It was that simple..hopefully next week’s will be more fun.

Week 7: Black & White Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hi guys! I’m back with another weekly manicure for the #31DC2017Weekly, manicure challenge. This weeks theme was black and white nails. I had to bounce around for ideas..I’m not one that likes to wear just black and white. I wasn’t in the creative mood either, so I went simple.

I decided to use yellow as a base color..yes I said yellow! I’m slowly trying to warm up to the color. I recently found this color called YOLO Yellow by Sinful Colors and I actually like it. It’s not too golden and not too pale for me.

For the black & white, I just took a black and a white nail striper and made vertical lines on my middle nails & chevron lines on my ring nails.

I just wasn’t together for this weeks manicure..gotta get back into my groove.

Week 6 – Violet Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hi guys! I’m on week 6 of the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge, this week’s prompt was Violet nails. I went crazy with the purples..let me just say that.

I started off by painting my nails with Silhouette by Sinful Colors..it’s a light purple. Next I took Purple Diamond which a glitter overcoat with a slight purple tint..I mean slight tint. I just applied that to my thumb, index, and pinky nails.

This is where I decided to two different designs on both hands. On my left hand, I laid several pieces of tape in ‘x’ shapes I believe…then I filled the openings in. I used several polishes, Gold Medal by SC, Purple Pop! by Salon Perfect, Who is Ultra Violet by Wet n Wild, Purple Craze by Sally Hansen, and It’s All a Bluer by Pure Ice.

The only difference on my right hand is, I just made one ‘x’ with the striping tape..and used a few less polishes. Also, I rarely ever take photos of my right hand so that’s why fingers are weird, haha.

What’s your thoughts on this weeks manicure?

Week 5 – Blue Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’m back with another #31DC2017Weekly manicure, this week’s prompt was Blue Nails. Yes, I am still a few weeks behind but I’m still having fun coming up with ideas.

This time I decided to try my take on galaxy nails..I didn’t have a cosmetic wedge on hand to sponge it so I did my best with just the brush. I used a ton of polishes so hopefully you don’t get confused.

I started off with using Sinful Colors Deep End as a base color for all my nails but middle & ring nails. For those I used Wet n Wild French White Creme.

Next I used Blueberry Hot Rod by SC, to give a glitter effect on all nails but middle & ring nails. That’s all I did for those nails.

I used Cold Leather, Ice Blue, Blueberry Hot Rod, Deep End (by Sinful Colors), all to make the galaxy look. I just filled in over the white..didn’t really a have pattern really. Lastly, I took Hottie which is a glitter coat with a blue tint and went over both nails.

I think my attempt went really well! Sorry for the picture quality on the first photo.

I loved how it turned out. What’s your thoughts?

Week 4 – Green Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’m back with another manicure for the #31DC2017Weekly challenge. This week the prompt was green nails..yes I’m posting twice for the challenge this week because I am behind. IMG_0381

I didn’t want to go crazy this week just wanted something easy. I started off by painting my nails using Sinful Colors Mint Chip..I adore this polish! It is matte but I applied a shine top coat.

For the nail art, I used Sinful Colors Silhouette and swiped it once down my middle & rings nails. It’s a pretty light lavender with shimmer. Last but not least, I took a white nail striper, outlined the purple and then made a zig-zag!

I think this looks cute! Not too much and not too less.

Week 3: Yellow Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’ve been busy lately so I haven’t been keeping up on my posts..but I’m back for Week 3’s manicure. I am still a few weeks behind but I getting there. Yellow nails was the prompt..I am also not a huge yellow fan but I was willing to work with it. What turned out great was, I recently discovered a new Sinful Colors collection that had a neon yellow…perfect for this week!

I choose to use Sinful Colors Out In Space..it’s a bright neon yellow BUT make sure you buy the white base that goes with this line or it won’t be neon. I plan to make another post about this collection, stay tuned. Anyhow, I applied it to all my nails.

Coming up with a design/nail art for this week was tricky..I had way too many ideas but then I thought I’m going to give watermarbling a shot. I’ve never had real good luck with watermarbing, so any tips would be great! I used Wet n Wild’s French White Creme & Black Creme. It didn’t turn out as bad as it could have but they weren’t what I wanted. Good enough though! I will get better over time and more practice. I did place striping tape in random order over my nail before watermarbling.

I really liked the manicure though besides the watermarbling, the yellow is so bright!
