ABC Challenge - L is for Leopard

Hey there! I'm proud to say this week I actually did some nail art! I tested my skills and decided to go with a Leopard design, one that I haven't tried before. And I have to say.... am so excited with my result! This was such a fun manicure to do and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

For this I used Essie in Miss Fancy Pants and Snap Happy and the black is Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris. Sammi at Glitznglammer was so kind to get the Essie polish for me for our St. Patty's Day gift Exchange.

Overall I think the colors came out awesome together and I cant wait to do another one of these! Have a great weekend everyone!

ABC Challenge - K is for KB Shimmer

Happy Friday! I am so excited to get my weekend started! I've got tickets to see Imagine Dragons tonight and have been patiently waiting all day and its almost time to get going! For the ABC Challenge this week I've got K is for KB Shimmer. As I have said before, she is probably my all time favorite indie. You could call me a little obsessed. The color I have for you today is called Sugar Plum Faerie. Its a beautiful plum purple colored jelly packed with tons of glitter as usual. What I love about this one is the green glitter, it makes the color really pop.

Have a great weekend!

ABC Challenge - J is for Jelly Sandwich

Hello Everyone! Another new one for me this week with the ABC Challenge, J is for Jelly Sandwich! I had to search for a good sheer polish that would go great with a new glitter polish I received by KB Shimmer called Pastel Me More. I ended up using Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Pink Slip. I fell in love with this from the minute I layered on the last coat of polish. Its a great color combination and really makes the pastels come out in the glitter. Totally happy with this manicure! What do you think?!

ABC Challenge - I is for Ikat

Wednesday already?! I cant wait til this week is over and I can relax this weekend. For today's challenge, I tried something new. When it comes to nail art, I'm terrible. I have no artistic abilities and my hand is never steady. I really wanted to come up with some type of nail art to practice my skills. So today, I present to you, my Ikat nail design for the letter I. In the process of doing this mani, I was sure it was going to come out  horrific looking. After I used the black striping polish, it actually came together and looked half way decent. Not to shabby for my first time huh? Have a wonderful week everyone!

ABC Challenge - H is for Hex Appeal

Hello out there! For the ABC Challenge last week, we had to come up with something that began with H. I have quite a few untried nail polish to go through, several of them being from one of my favorite indies KB Shimmer. For today, I have KB Shimmer Hex Appeal. I don't know why I wanted so long to try this one out. Its packed with glitter and has a dark blue jelly base. I wore this on its own and couldn't stop staring at my hands. I highly recommend this if you LOVE GLITTER :) Until next time!
