Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend, and are ready for the week. Are you a person who jumps right into the Christmas/holiday craziness, or are you low-key? We are definitely low-key about it until Christmas actually gets here. But…my husband definitely “Griswald”s the house every year. This was how our house looked last year (he added more lights after this):
Okay, onto the actual manicure for today. I had a really, really, really hard time narrowing my favorites down to just 3; I finally picked butter LONDON All Hail the Queen, piCture pOlish cosmos, and OPI Solitaire.
I started off with 3 thin coats of AHTQ, then taped off sections and painted on cosmos.
Inside, no flash, lamplight:
Finally I filled in one section with Solitaire.
This might be my most favorite manicure yet from the whole challenge! What do you think? Do you like it with Solitaire or without? Click through for more awesome manicures!
Good morning! It’s a very cold and snowy morning here in Montana. My nails are killing me because I went on an epic swatch-athon yesterday – all the Revlon Parfumerie nail polishes! I’ll be showing you them Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday – but you can catch sneak peeks on my instagram.
But for now, let’s get to today’s challenge manicure – a 3 color gradient and pattern. I started off with a base of A England Rose Bower, then created the gradient with piCture pOlish Ocean and A England Lady of the Lake.
I then looked around at my new favorite website for a pattern to create over the top, and settled on a chequer pattern. I used Mentality Sunny to create the chequer pattern.
I love how this turned out! It’s almost like an optical illusion on my nails. What do you think?

Good morning all! 🙂 I am hoping today will be a good day, but unfortunately I’m not hopeful; I already have a pounding headache this morning, and my two children wouldn’t let themselves go to sleep last night – so they were up until about 2:30 a.m.!! Ah well, I’ll just have to wear them out today. 😉
Onto the nails! Today is stripes, and I’m so ridiculously excited to show you what I came up with today! Here’s what I used:
I started off with 2 coats of Alpine Snow, then a stripe of piCture pOlish cosmos:
Isn’t that fun? But wait, there’s more! 😛 I then added a dot of Alpine Snow on the index and pinky fingers, with a dot of OPI DS Sapphire on top of it. Then I added a “rope” of OPI Innie Minnie Mightie Bow twining around all of the nails. Lastly, I added white accents to the “rope”. Check it out:
