The New 31 Day Challenge-Recreate A Mani From The Challenge

Hey everyone!!  Thanks for stopping by!!  Today is the final day of this challenge!  The first time I did the mani for the merge/melt challenge I wasn't quite sure what melt even was.  Then after they were complete and I looked through the other designs I figured it out...like a drip look!  And I loved the one by Peace, Love and Polish so that is the one I decided to recreate.  I stuck with the same concept but changed up the colors a bit.  For this mani I used
 
Nicole by OPI-Love Song
Sally Hansen-Blue Me Away!
Nail Art-White
 
And here are the results
 
This challenge was a lot of fun and my first attempt at doing one so I am quite pleased that I completed it!!!  Starting tomorrow is a new challenge with 2 options for each day so I am going to give that one a try also!!  Don't forget to check out the other designs for this challenge below!!  Until next time...

Hello everybody!!  Thanks for stopping by on this lovely Friday!!  For today's we challenge we have inspired by your childhood.  When I was in second grade I got a pink and gray bike.  It was too big for me because my parents wanted me to be able to use it for a few years, but I didn't care!  I rode it all the time (even if I couldn't sit on the seat and pedal when I first got it)!  It was my favorite thing I had when I was a child.  So I based my design on that bike.  For this mani I used

The Relaxed 31 Day Challenge-Delicate Print

Hey everyone!!!  For today's challenge we have delicate print.  This is not my favorite challenge by any means.  I don't know why but I almost dread this one!!  I wasn't feeling very creative so maybe that's why!   Or the fact that my cuticles look like shit because of this harsh, cold weather so I'm a little embarrassed to show them...Not sure.  I decided to use nail decals for this one.  I guess it's an easy out!  I like the way it turned out though.  For this mani I used
Zoya-Barbie
Nail Decals

The Relaxed 31 Day Challenge-Flowers

Hey everybody!!  Happy Friday!!  For todays challenge we have flowers.  I kept this one pretty simple.  If you have a dotting tool you can do it too!!  For this mani I used
 
Orly-Spark
Zoya-Jolene
Sinful Colors-Snow Me White
 
And here is how it turned out
 
All I did for this mani is
1. Apply 2 coats of color to each nail and let dry
2. With the dotting tool, make single dots for the center of the flower randomly but spaced to fit the petals of the flowers around them
3. Add 5 or 6 dot evenly around the center dot for the petals
 
Simple enough!!  Don't forget to check out the other designs for this challenge below!!  Have a great weekend!!  Until next time...
