The Nail Challenge Collaborative - November 2015: Monochrome

*purchased by me*


Hey there!  Today I have my third post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative November Monochrome theme. For this one I had to go with my favorite color...PINK!!!


Last fall I did a spiral dotticure, and I have always wanted to try it again. Instead of a spiral I went with a circular design, and I'm really happy with how this turned out. 


I used all Zoya polishes for this mani.  I started with two coats of Dot. Once it was completely dry I used Ali and Shelby to create my pink dotted look! 


I'm so happy with how this turned out. I will tell you that if you are looking for some quick and easy nail art don't do this.  It can be time consuming, but the finished product is worth it.  

What do you think of my third look? Have you ever tried a dotticure like this?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - November 2015: Monochrome

*purchased by me*


Hey there!  Today I have my second post for November's The Nail Challenge Collaborative Monochrome theme.  For this one I went with shades of purple. 


I started with a base of Essie Lilacism and stamped with Zoya Pinta and MoYou London Princess 12 plate. I love the pinwheel design and need to use this plate more often! 


I love how this turned it out. It's simple, but the monochrome colors look so good with this stamp.  

What do you think of this look?  What color family should I use for my next post?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - November 2015: Monochrome

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Sorry I've been MIA for a while.  I broke my index finger nail way below the quick so haven't been doing my nails much, but today I have my first post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative November Monochrome theme.  


I knew I wanted to do shades of brown, and originally I was going to do stamping, but once I picked my polishes I decided to do fan brush nail art. I thought they would look great together in a fan brush look. 


I started with a base of Zoya Jacqueline and then with my fan brush I used Zoya Nyssa and Essie Partner In Crime as well as Jacqueline.  I did a layer of Nyssa, a layer of Partner In Crime, a layer of Jacqueline then one more layer of Nyssa and Partner In Crime to achieve this look.  


Here's a macro shot so you can see how it looks close up. 


I really love fan brush nail art.  It's super easy and looks great!  Plus it's fun to see what colors look good together.  

What do you think of this look? Have you tried fan brush nail art? What would you do for a monochrome look?
