Since doing Serum, I haven’t had as much time to do nail art or really swatch the many bottles of untrieds I have. Luckily there’s a person on Instagram that goes by Californails that creates monthly nail art challeges. Not a daily-who-has-time-for-that challenge, but something more flexible for those that don’t have time to do it on the daily. So here’s August’s challenge line up:
That doesn’t look too bad right?
So for gradient I took three colors from the OPI SF collection (A-Piers to be Tan, First Date on the Golden Gate and Lost on Lombard) to create a gradient. Definitely need more practice with gradients that consists of more than two colors.
And here’s the glow shot:
It’s the second challenge of the month and already I’m a day late -_- But I’m busy making polishes and planning the FW13 line, so I think I can be excused, right? For recreation, I decided to recreate a mani of My Nails are Dope, I follow her on Tumblr and Instagram and I’m always amazed with her mix and match and chain manis.
Here, I used Zoya Avery and China Glaze White on White (striped thumb), some pearls and gold chains.
I’m planning to do a lot more of these challenges, one because I’ve been really rusty with nail art and two it’ll give me more things to share with you! Hope you all get in on the fun!
