Sadly I am still in a bit of a nail funk and have not come up with any thing original in a while. I saw this mani in Nail It magazine and decided to recreate it. I did not get as smooth of lines at my cuticle like I wanted, but it still came out pretty.
I had to look for inspiration for coral and found this gorgeous mani in Google. The site I got it from was soyoubeauty.com. Since the prompt was coral I used a lighter shade of the pink called Coral Reef .

Still behind, but I am going to finish this challenge even if it kills me ( geez its not even that serious.) For abstract I went a little funky and just did any thing that came to mind. I got 2 compliments off of it so I guess it served its purpose for the day.

I didn’t struggle too hard with this mani, but I am still not feeling inspired by anything original. I have been searching the internet for ideas. I knew I wanted to do something with Pink and brown and saw this adorable floor matte in giraffe print, I then remembered I had a stamping plate with Giraffe print.

Sigh all this overtime is great, but it is seriously taking me away from nail time, but my paycheck ain’t complaining so I will keep doing it till I can’t no more. Even me checking my e-mails is suffering. If you get some odd comment about art you did in October I am sorry. I was feeling lazy last night and wanted something quick and easy , like your mom (sorry sorry I have resorted to saying your mom after every funny comment I hear.) I painted my base coat as a pretty base color an covered it with Avon Nail Art Design Strips Racy Lacy. It is a sheer nail sticker with leopard and lace design on it on top of that it has tiny white, pink and purple gems ( not really gems, but don’t know what else to call them)
Here is a pick of the base coat just by itself:
I had a lot of difficulties with these stickers as my nails are not straight they curve a bit. So if I had the base of my nail lined up with the sticker I would still have uncovered nails on the side. I mad due and think these are pretty cool, but they will not be on long.

I usually hate the last day of challenges as I never know if I am supposed to recreate mine or another persons. I went back through the Inlinkz and the one by Colorful Cupcake Cat. Her original image is here. I was instantly hooked by the glitter and the Fimo canes, I have not used mine in a while.
Here is before the Fimo canes were put on.
