31 Day Challenge - Day 5: Purple

     Happy Saturday everyone although I'm sure it is Sunday for a lot of you right now.  I was really excited to wear Aurora from Zoya for this mani.  It is a part of the new Ornate Collection that was released last month.  I fell in love with Aurora when I saw the first swatches of it.  I received it in a secret Santa swap that I did in one of my Facebook groups and I was pretty much jumping up and down when I got it.
     To achieve this look, I painted two coats of  each polish onto each nail then a coat of Seche Vite to help it dry quick.  After it dried I applied striping tape to each nail and then painted each nail with one coat of the opposite color.  

Base coat: Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Accent color base: Aurora from Zoya - 2 coats
Main base: I've Got Bieber Fever from Nicole by OPI - 2 coats
Top coat: Seche Vite

I know this one is fuzzy but I wanted you to see the holographic goodness in Aurora.

Have you guys been able to try any of the Ornate polishes?  Tune in tomorrow for our "favorite color family" mani.


  1. This is so nice, simple and sophisticated. Why have I never thought of this?! I think this may be my recreate mani, but I would have to use different colours as I don't have these. I really like the reversal on the ring finger, I do that if I'm using two colours for a dotticure.

    1. I wish I could take credit for this design, but I can't. I'm pretty sure I saw it on Pinterest. I like your idea of doing this with a dotticure. I will have to try it soon. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

  2. I love this technique - Very Pretty!
