ABC Challenge - Y is for Yellow

Yay for Wednesday! It's time for another challenge post and I've got something that I am so proud of to show you today. I've tried to do the ombre or gradient technique for a while now, never seeming to get it right. Determined to make it work, I took some advise from my best friend and then watched this tutorial. I was pretty confident after the video that I COULD do this. Obviously since this weeks letter is Y, I decided to go with the color Yellow. I went into my stash and found 3 amazingly beautiful yellows and then began to create what I am now so freaking proud of.

For this beauty I started with a white base, White On by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. I then used three yellows, Sinful Colors Unicorn, Julep Daisy and Zoya Darcy. I topped it off with some KB Shimmer Clearly On Top. AHHHHH I LOVE IT! Its the little things in life that make me happy.

ABC Challenge - X is for Xtreme Wear

Hey there! I've got a late night post for you to get caught up with the ABC Challenge. I can't believe that we're already at X! I wanted to do some nail art but had some issues and wasn't satisfied with my results so I just decided to slap on some good old Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Crushed. I have a TON of these Xtreme Wear nail polish, probably because it's such a great price and I love the colors. This is one of my favorites for sure. I had such a hard time trying to get the right color on the photos, its more of a coral-orange colored nail polish, but still beautiful.

Don't forget to check out the other ladies below! Until next time!

ABC Challenge - W is for Watermelon

Good Morning! Today I'm excited to show you some nail art that I'm pretty proud of. First off, I need to give credit where its due, my boyfriend gave me the idea to do Watermelon for the W challenge this week. I came up with the design on my own and couldn't be more proud of my result.

I used Essie Ole Caliente for my base and then mixed Essie Mojito Madness and Lime Crime Pastelchio for the green tips. I went with a black nail pen for the seeds and then used KB Shimmer Clearly on Top to seal it. I am in love with how it came out! I think its perfect for the start of summer time. I actually ended up going out and buying a watermelon after I did these bad boys, made me hungry looking at them!

I can't wait to see what the other girls have for the challenge this week. Check them out below and have a great week!

Happy Hump Day! I'm actually getting my post up on time this week for the ABC Challenge! Today I've got Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Violet Voltage. I decided to top it with NYC Starry Silver Glitter. I absolutely love this combination and wear it frequently. Please disregard the dog hair on my nail in one of the photos, I didn't notice it until I uploaded the photo; the joys of having a dog :)

ABC Challenge - U is for Urban Decay

Hello ladies! For this weeks ABC Challenge, I've got a new set of polish to try out, U is for Urban Decay Showboat Nail Polish Set. I picked this set up at Nordstrom Rack for about $10 and I think the full retail price is around $30, so I got a pretty sweet deal.

I decided to use all the colors from this set and then use tape to do some fun nail art. I think it turned out great! Take a look at the other ladies below from the challenge this week and have a great weekend!
