31 Day Nail Challenge Day Ten:Gradient Nails

For today's gradient nails, I had a hard time thinking of what to do :( I decided on doing each nail a different shade of red. Here they are

None of these pictures show the different shades of red :( i'm super bummed how this turned out & I'll make sure to post extra awesome ones from here on out :)

31 Day Nail Challenge Day Seven: Black & White Nails

Originally for my black & white nails, I planned on stripes but later thought that would be too "plain" so I decided to do a straw splatter using Wet N Wild white for the base and China Glaze Liquid Leather for the splatters.

I know I got a little picture happy with this, but I LOVE how it turned out :)

31 Day Nail Challenge Day Six: Violet Nails

Today is violet nails :) I decided to use one of the colors that I got in yesterday's nail mail: Julep Trina
I loved the application of Trina, This is only one coat, and it dried super fast

The bottle looks awesome with flash

Got nail mail today :) was pretty pumped that TWO packages were coming in the same day. I ordered Julep's Sienna & Emilie a few Tuesdays ago for their Tuesday flash sale (B1G1 for the pair of them) It said it shipped last Tuesday and came today. Also today came my Julep Maven box, which shipped THIS Monday and arrived on the same truck as the package shipped last week :)
In my first box (that was super tiny and cute) I got Sienna (a metallic gold) & Emilie (a jade green)
In my Maven box, I got two sample packets, one of a sunscreen hand moisturizer & the other an age defying hand moisturizer. There were 4 polish bottles (3 colors and one treatment). For the colors, I received Kim (dark gunmetal grey), Trina (a deep aubergine), and Christina (a shimmery deep orange). I also got Julep Nail Therapy, and on the postcard with "Jane's tip of the month" it says to use as a base coat to prevent colors from staining your nails. :) All of these will be swatched and reviewed soon.

31 Day Nail Challenge Day Five: Blue Nails

Today is BLUE nails day :)
AAAAND here it is :) Orly Stone Cold. with a few green stains from yesterday (woopsies)
This one is done with iPhone flash

Here it is without flash :)
This is the first time I've gotten to use this polish since I bought it about a month ago, and I'm super happy with how it looks :)

31 Day Nail Challenge Day Four: Green Nails

I was pretty excited about green nails, because I was just recently given a bottle of Revlon's Apple-Tini Fizz (from Amber from Rainbows & Sparkles) and I haven't gotten to use it :)
So here it is in all it's apple-scented-ness :)
 It looks really yellow with just one coat
 With flash
 On my jeans :)
 Painting my right hand while sitting in traffic :O
 This turned out well for being done with my "wrong" hand while driving :)
 Two coats, and you can see the little flakies in it :)
 Same as above with flash (and apparently my finger :/ )
