#31DC2013 Day 16: Tribal Print

Todays challenge is Tribal Print. When I searched for 'tribal' in Pinterest, I came across a cute bikini by Mara Hoffman, which inspired me to make this nail art.

Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet as a base, then I used scotch tape for the white triangle and stamped - also with the tape - using BM-423 and Essence Stamp Me! Black.

I wish I had taken more pictures of this manicure, but unfortunately I had to work that day and when I came home, the manicure was all wrecked because of the activities that day.

Next time I'll show; GLITTERS! That will be a hard challenge, cause boy!, have I some really pretty glitter polishes to choose from!
AND! That will be a great opportunity to review OPI Glitter Off Peel-able Natural Base Coat!

#31DC2013 Day 15: Delicate Print

Hello sweeties!

It has been over 2 months since I updated my blog. Isn't that a shame? It is...

But today I have for you the 15th challenge, also known as Delicate Print. I find this challenge hard to do, because the term is so broad, you can interpret it in so many ways! I wanted something simple, something quick. So I chose for a nude background with white delicate stamping. Here's what I came up with.

It was indeed super quick. As a base I used 2 coats of Essie - Ballet Slippers and for quick drying I used one coat of Seche Vite. I stamped the lace using image plate BM-323 and the little flower is a part of an image from an Essence stamping plate. Polish I used was Stamp Me! White by Essence. Once again sealed in with a coat of Seche Vite.

Though I like how it turned out, I find it just a bit too simple for my nails. But the next challenge will be more 'me', I promise!
