Week 16: Geometric – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! We are on week 16 of the #31DCWeekly manicure challenge..halfway through and I have to say I’m glad I choose to do it. I have been having so much fun coming up with ideas and trying things I wouldn’t normally do! It’s opened my eyes a little more. Anyway, this week’s prompt was geometric nails. Since I already did the chevron stamping I choose a little cooler of a pattern. Let’s go.

I started off by using ‘Kommotion’ by Sinful Colors..it was part of the KJC collection a while back. I like this color because it’s a purple with blueish tints. It also a gold shimmer in it which I tried to capture in a photo below.

Next, I pulled out my Pueen Party Lover stamping plate, and choose a pattern that looked geometric to me. It’s got lines & small circles. After a few days of wearing it, I finally discovered what it is of in my opinion, I think it’s palm tree leaves? Possibly. I used the white stamping polish that came with the kit.

 

I really liked how this manicure looks. The color & stamping work great together! Thoughts?

Week 15: Delicate Print – #31DC2017Weekly

Hi guys! I’m back for week 15 of the #31DCWeekly manicure challenge. This week the theme was delicate print.

I started off by painting all my nails in Cheshire China by Sinful Colors. This is one of my favorites, it’s a porcelain matte finish and it just reminds me of vintage. It’s a light lavender, just so pretty I wish I grabbed another bottle when it was available!

I was searching my stamping plates for a delicate print and I noticed one that looks similar to lace. I thought it would look very well with the color I choose. I used Pueen stamping plate Fairytale Lover and the stamping polish that came with it. Once again, my stamping has improved! This time I also used a heavier layer of top coat and didn’t get the smearing I got before.

 

Overall, I love this manicure. It’s so just vintage and delicate feeling to me. What’s your thoughts?

Week 13: Animal Print – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! We are on week 13 of the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge…I’m glad I was able to catch up and now have time to do some other manicures on the side too. This weeks theme was Animal Print..which was perfect to practice my stamping abilities again. One of the plates I have has 2 zebra prints, so that’s my print of choice.

For the weeks manicure, I tried out a new polish, it’s by Orly..from their breathable line that recently came out not too long ago I believe. I’ve been meaning purchase one but put it off until I saw a color I couldn’t resist. The name is Beauty Essential, which I don’t typical run to reds but this one is different. It’s more of a brighter red-orange and it’s a nice pop of color. Plus, summer is coming or should I say here as it almost hit 90 degrees today. Anyhow, I love the way this polish looks & applied. You aren’t suppose to use a base coat or top coat because it’s an all in one deal..and suppose to be a treatment too.

I can say that it has been 3 days and there’s very minimal chipping, just one little one from me trying to open something with my nail. They hold up good for the most part without adding a top coat, I’m impressed.

To finish this off, I took my Pueen Party Lover stamping plate and stamped the zebra print on my middle & ring fingers. I used the white stamping polish by Pueen as well. For my second time trying to stamp I think I did a million times better than before! I learned that I need to roll the stamp on, not just smash it down onto the nail. The only mess up on this manicure was I applied the top coat to quickly and the polish smeared on one nails, bummer! I need to learn patience, lol.

What’s your thoughts on this manicure?
