I’m back! Week 19 & Week 20..#31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! It’s been a little while since I have posted. I got busy with some other things that had to take my first priority. I recently opened an Etsy shop with my mom (Mother & Daughter) so I’ve been putting a lot of time and work to that. Since I finally have things settled in place for now I thought I would jump on here and catch up.

I’m a few weeks behind on posting for the #31DC2017Weekly challenge but I still tried to do the weekly manicures. The first week I missed was Galaxy week..now I did one a few months ago and it turned out amazing but for this week I just wasn’t focused and tried to go the easy route..not what I had planned but whatcha gonna do?

I started off painting all my nails with Black & Blue by Sally Hansen..it’s a nice multicolor chrome polish in my opinion, sorta galaxy themed. Then I took a cosmetic wedge and attempted stamping various glitters to get a galaxy look. I believe I have all the colors right, I used Nicole by OPI’s Rich in Sprit, Sinful Colors Blueberry Hot Rod, Ice Blue, and Hottie. ┬áIt’s okay definitely not what I wanted but it worked.

This last week the prompt was Watermarble. I’ve tried water-marbling before and had a few hits along with misses so this was another good try to get better at it. I started off by painting all my nails with Taupe is Dope by Sinful Colors..I LOVE this color..It’s such a pretty color. It’s between a brown to a brown gray at times.

For the water-marble, I used Sinful Colors YOLO Yellow & Gold Medal..along with Wet n Wild’s French White Creme. For once, I am truly over the moon satisfied with this water-marble manicure! It turned out pretty dang well! Until……I smudged my middle finger, but again whatcha gonna do? At least the water-marble finally turned out good.

What’s your thoughts on these manicures? I’m hoping to stay on track now but if things get busy again, I’ve got to focus on that first.

Chat later!

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?

Chat later!
