31 Day Challenge - Day 4: Pink
All right, getting back on track. For blog post two today I have the fourth mani for the 31 day challenge, pink. As many of you may not know, pink is my favorite color. I basically stay away from it because if I didn't every mani in my blog would be pink. I got three new pink polishes for Christmas and I couldn't decided which one to use for today's mani. With a quick google search I decided to do this design. I love how it turned out. If you look closely you can see my learning curve. My pinky was the first nail I did. While doing this nail I tried to apply the polish with the nail polish brushes in each bottle and tried to contain each polish to its own section. I did the same for the second one and it was really runny and hard to control. On my middle finger I applied the polish to each section with a striping brush. On my forefinger I applied the lightest pink over the entire nail, then the middle pink starting from the light pink and all the way up the nail, and applied the darkest pink on just the tip. This seemed to work the best.
Base coat: Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Base color: White on the Spot from Miani - 2 coats
Pinks from lightest to darkest: Princesses Rule! from OPI
Shrimply Devine from Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
Koala Bear-y from OPI
Top coat: Seche Vite
Sorry for the light tip wear, but I couldn't get any pictures the evening I did this, so this one was taken the next day after working for a few hours.
Now for an explanation of this picture. Below we have Princesses Rule! and Koala Bear-y from OPI. They were given to me from my sister for Christmas. Let me see if I can explain how this was given to me without confusing you. When I received this gift it was handed to me in as two boxes tied together with ribbon. The tag told me to open the smaller box first, (seventh box down). I start opening and it is just boxes inside of boxes. In the smallest one was a little scroll that said: "see bigger box for gift," which happened to be the box on the bottom. I started opening and was laughing so hard. Finally I got to my prize! Lol.
I received Shrimply Devine for Christmas as well. I bought it with a gift card I recieved from one of my customers! How sweet was that!
All right, enough for now. I am glad to be caught up. I will see you all tomorrow for purple.
