OMD July 31 Day Nail art challenge- Coral

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 .

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Abstract (splatter.popart.cubism)

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.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Contrast

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.

Avon Nail Art Design Strips- Racy Lacy

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:

coral reef swatchI like this pink a lot as it suits my skin tone. Here are my nails after I applied the stickers:

racy lacy over coral reefI 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.

OMD 31 day nail art challenge Day 31 Recreate your Favorite

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.
