My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day 10- Your Favorite Mani!

A while ago I did a black and white challenge and I got to show my favorite simple cute nail art.  Black and white alternating polka dots.  Even though I kind of cheated on the end, I really enjoyed this challenge and can't wait to start the others!

My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day 9-Flowers

Just like my last post, this is taken from another challenge I did.  I actually like this mani more than when I did it now.  The original post is here.

My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day 8- Hearts and/or love!

This is another simple mani I had previously posted about.  If you want more details, go to my original post here.  I hope you guys don't mind my double-dipping!

My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day 7- Glitter

Life has been super busy, and I didn't get to finish the challenge with everyone else, so I'm doing a quick post with manis I already did.  I'm trying to get back to regular posting, and I'm starting not one but two challenges in October, so I'll definitely be posting more soon.  These are glitter tips. I love the look of these, it's so easy to do and it looks awesome.

My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day 6- Stripes

 For this challenge, I decided to do non-traditional stripes- ZEBRA! I stamped this design over a gorgeous purple creme.  I used two coats of revlon top speed in violet, and stamped using a sally hansen color quick pen in silver.

My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day 5- Polka Dots

I love polka dots! They are one my favorite things to do on my nails because they are simple, and easy to do.  For this look I used my dotting tool and a q-tip to get two different sized polka dots! I LOVE this look.  I wore them for almost a week, and I loved this pattern.  It kind of reminds me of minnie mouse for some reason.  Only two of my nails chipped after working, so I just took those off and painted them plain and did the same on the other hand.  Kind of a weird accent nail type thing, but I still really enjoyed it.  The color I used was China Glaze Go Go Pink, which ordinarily I wouldn't really like, but it was part of a support breast cancer package, and I decided to finally try it out.  I did the dots using OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I also used my new Poshe strengthening base coat and seche vite. Wow, I didn't realize I wrote that much! Time for pictures!

My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day Four- Favorite Food

I apologize for yet another absence.  My computer broke and I couldn't get them to post AND I started school on Monday and have been super busy.  I AM however keeping up with the challenge, and should be back to posting with everyone else.  Now, back to the challenge.  I wanted to do cheeseburger nails, but that was difficult because I couldn't find a yellow, or nude or brown.  So I decided to do cookies! Chocolate chip would have been nice, but again no brown so I decided to do "sugar cookies" aka white nails with polka dots!

I don't remember exactly which colors I used, but if you would like to know leave me a comment and I'll get back to you!
