This was hard for me to decide, because all the other ladies had some kick-ass manicures! I narrowed it down to three: Fairly Charming’s Mad Men look, The Bubbly Brunette’s tulips, and The Bubbly Brunette’s starfish/beach look. I settled on Fairly Charming’s Mad Men look, only because when I first saw it, I just loved it so much! Here is the look (posted here with permission):
I actually didn’t have any of the colors she used in her look, so I had to search through my stash. I ended up using Sinful Colors My Buoyfriend, Sinful Colors Nail Art Bad Chick, and Orly Monroe’s Red. In retrospect, I should have used a different red, as Monroe’s Red was a bit too sheer and ended up needing coaxing to look good. I like how my left hand looks, but my right hand – boy I need way more practice making lines free-handed!
For some reason, I loved this on Fairly Charming’s nails, but I didn’t like it as much on my nails. I think part of that had to do with the fact that she has longer, lovely (!) nail beds than I do, and I think it makes a difference sometimes in how nail art looks.
Well I had a lot of fun doing all these May challenges, and I can’t wait until the June & July challenges start!
