Eva from Fight of Whimsy is having a nail art contest giveaway and here’s my entry!
The only rules of the contest are that you must have ONLY nail polish on your finished design. No rhinestones, acrylic paints, decals, etc. That works for me since I mostly use polish for my nail art anyway! For first step was to pick a color scheme. I was laying in bed thinking about it, and I went to turn on my Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet. While it was booting up the Nook logo appeared on the screen in the perfect color combo! Here’s the four polishes I chose based on my nook inspiration:
light green ♥ Ulta Limelight
dark green ♥ Essence Deep Sea, Baby
blue ♥ Revlon Blue Slate
yellowy/taupe ♥ China Glaze Kalahari Kiss
After I chose my four colors I did not come up with a plan like I normally do. This time I decided to ‘wing it’ since some of my best work comes from no planning. I created the cool V shape which looked great, but I thought it still needed something. And then came the tassels! I have no idea, it just popped into my head.
I really enjoyed my tassel manicure. And that light green Ulta polish wore like armor!! I had this mani on from last Sunday til today (Saturday) with no chips. 6 days…like, dang! My polish doesn’t normally last that long. I only took it off today in preparation of my eclipse mani for the N.AI.L. linkup. I love this shiny green polish- Go Ulta! And thanks to Eva for holding this contest! Without her contest I never would’ve ended up wearing a cool mani like this, especially for 6 days straight. 🙂
Wish me luck in the nail art contest! The contest ends on Nov 3rd, 2013…. so you still have a little time left if you decide to enter! Here’s all the details on the Flight of Whimsy of blog.
