A2Z Series Week 13 - M is for Multi-Colored

*purchased by me*


Hey there! It's week 13 of the A2Z Weekly Challenge, and this week M is for Multi-Colored.  I can't believe we're halfway through the challenge! 


I had a really hard time with this week's challenge.  I had an idea, but I didn't like how it turned out. Then I tried something else, and again I didn't love it. Finally I came up with a mani I loved, but as you can see my hands are really dry and my cuticles are a mess due to being sick and this extremely cold weather.  So please just look at the nail art and don't judge me for my cuticles. I've been using lotion and cuticle oil regularly so I'm not sure what else to do. 


The polishes I used for this look (from left to right) are KBShimmer Shore Thing, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, and KBShimmer Sky Jinks. I then stamped over them using MoYou London Sailor 06 plate and Rica Whiteout. 


I love how this turned out. I have a hard time stamping, but always seem to get it right when I use my MoYou London plates.  Now I'll show you my two failed looks for this weeks theme.


I wanted to do mini hearts, but I just don't have that technique down yet so they weren't uniform and some didn't even look like hearts. The base is OPI Embrace The Gray and the hearts are Zoya Areej, KBShimmer Shore Thing and Sky Jinks, and Sinful Colors Endless Blue.


I don't think I'll ever get the hang of water marbling. I need to keep practicing though cause I love how it looks when other people do it. The colors I used for this are Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, KBShimmer Sky Jinks and Shore Thing, and Zoya Areej.
 
There are so many fun ideas for multi-colored manis, what would you do? Any recommendations for cuticle hair in this harsh winter weather? 

Don't forget to check out the other bloggers participating in the challenge and remember to check back every Thursday to see all the creations.  Next week is N is for New.  For the complete A2Z Archive head over to the hubpage HERE

  1. I think the watermarble turned out great. But I like the finished mani also. I love the colour combo you did, it's great! I can never do a proper water marble, so I gave up entirely on it. But I wish I could do it, I love the look of it!

    1. Thanks! I am determined to do just one good water marble. It just takes so long to do them so I don't think of it often.
