I'm also going to be switching some stuff around here soon...won't be huge I don't think, but I do want to get back into blogging and I'm trying to re-organize my life and priorities so we'll see what happens.
Here is the 31 day challenge list in case you haven't already seen it!
SO onto Day 1: Red!
I picked Sally Hansen 10 Day No Chip polish in Resilient Red! I wanted an obviously red cream since my nails are so stubby. Anything glittery I don't like on short nails, so here's what I ended up with...and I'll get back to you on how long this mani lasts without chipping ;)
P.S. I failed miserably with these pictures and I apologize. This isn't how I wanted to return from another 2 week hiatus, haha. It was pretty dark outside already and I didn't realize until I just now edited these pictures that the polish looks a little bumpy, but it's just water droplets from when I rinsed my hands! Ugh. Fail!
So this polish went on pretty smooth...I actually enjoyed it for a red. I used three coats, but two would've been plenty as it was pretty opaque. It was a bit hard cleaning up, but you'll have that with darker colors usually!
And thennnn I decided to stamp a little daisy with my new stamping plates that I (finally) got from Born Pretty! And holy moly, I give you ladies who stamp a TON of credit because I just don't have the patience for it. I probably tried to get it on the stamp like 5 times each hand and then I got it but it's obviously not centered and ugh. Just a mess. I've been trying for a few days, too, it just hasn't worked out too well, lol. Any tips? And any suggestions on good stamping polishes??!!
|I tried to fill it in a bit...didn't work...and then I blurred the picture. So much fail in this post.|
Ohhhhhhhh well. Day 1 down, 30 to go! Any of you ladies trying this challenge??
