Day 11 - Polka Dots
2 Coats Smokey Mountain Lacquers Forsaken
Polka Dots - ellagee Ring Ding Ding Ding Dingering-eding, We're Not Broken Just Bent, and You Sexy Thang
I was definitely in a fall mood when I chose the colors for this manicure! Smokey Mountain Lacquers Forsaken has a great formula, and I really love the color. I'm glad I decided to try a new brand!
Day 12 - Stripes
Zoya Jacqueline, Evvie, Pepper, Sailor, and Codie
Straight Nail Vinyls
I was still in a fall mood and wanted to use some of my untried Zoyas. I'm happy with how this turned out!
Day 13 - Animal Print
2 Coats Color Club Harp On It
I used a dotting tool to do the leopard spots. I'm not typically an animal print fan, but I love how this turned out and will definitely do it again.
Day 14 - Flowers
2 Coats Orly Lollipop
Stamping - Rica Whiteout
I'm honestly embarrassed to be sharing this one! I wasn't feeling well and decided to try stamping. It didn't come like I wanted it to, but I didn't have the energy to do it over. I do love the color combo though.
Day 15 - Delicate Print
2 Coats Stardust Polish To Gnome Me Is To Love Me (from the September G.N.O.M.E. Box)
Accent Nail - Zoya Kennedy
I decided to go with a lace look for my delicate print. I used a dotting tool to achieve this look. I love how it turned out!
Day 16 - Geometric
2 Coats Zoya Zeenat
Straight Nail Vinyls
This is my favorite from the style section of the challenge. I love the color combo and I forgot how pretty Zoya Zeenat is. This is an easy mani to do, and you can use so many different color combinations for it.
Day 17 - Glitter
2 Coats Zoya Jana
Glitter - Pretty & Polished Private School
I wanted to do a glitter gradient for this day. I did the gradient on all the nails except my ring finger which I covered entirely. I love the red shimmer in Pretty & Polished Private School.
Day 18 - Half Moons
Half Moon - Zoya Casey
I had been wanting to try a negative space manicure and thought that it would look good in the half moon. I love the negative space look with vampy colors like Zoya Casey so I was really happy with how this turned out. I used white circle reinforcement stickers that you can get at office supply stores to achieve the half moon.
Day 19 - Galaxies
1 Coat Sinful Colors Starry Night
Nebula - Zoya Purity, Wednesday, and Sailor
1 Coat Sonnetarium Snowfall
Galaxy Nails have always scared me. They look great when done right, but they always seemed so complicated to do. I watched a tutorial by cutepolish on YouTube to figure out how to do them. I think if I had left off the bigger stars I would have really liked how this turned out.
Day 20 - Water Marble
1 Coat Zoya Get Even
Pointer Finger - 2 Coats Zoya Odette
Pinkie Finger - 2 Coats Zoya Shawn
Thumb (not shown) - 2 Coats Zoya Kendal
Middle and Ring Fingers - 1 Coat Rica Whiteout
Water Marble - Zoya Odette, Shawn, and Kendal
I knew I wanted to use Zoya Shawn in my water marble and thought the Odette and Kendal complimented it nicely. I had only tried water marbling once before this so was actually pleased with how this turned out. I can't wait to water marble again!
Please give the brands I used some love on Facebook - Color Club, ellagee, Essie, Nail Vinyls, Orly, Pretty & Polished, Rica, Sinful Colors, Smokey Mountain Lacquers, Stardust Polish, and Zoya.
