Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #11: Greek!
Today’s challenge has a Greek theme, and I wanted to do something different than the Grecian Dress design that I did a while back. One of my favorite patterns is the Greek fret/key pattern, so I decided to alter it a little bit and use it for this challenge!

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #10: Zebra Print
I never thought we’d end up doing a common design! I haven’t done zebra print in a very long time, so it was the perfect opportunity to get some practice in. This was also my first try using The Best Glue Ever with my nail foil! This stuff is AMAZING.

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #9: Fashionably Balanced
Today’s theme is tightrope walking! Watching people do this act is really cool. I mean, I did gymnastics among other things, but this takes more balance than I have inside my body. So I decided to paint heels on a high wire.
When I was painting this, it reminded me of an episode of The Office. If you know which one I’m talking about, you’re great.

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #8: Television Static
Today’s challenge is television! I found it to be a pretty broad theme and was stuck on what to do. After planning and drawing things for much too long, I changed my mind completely and settled on doing television static, a.k.a. noise, snow, fuzzies, etc. I saw Sarah of Chalkboard nails do something similar (and better) with black and white glitter on alternating backgrounds and thought the idea was cool. Unfortunately, my white glitter is pretty translucent, so when it hits the polish, it practically disappears. I just stuck with black glitter on a white background. And it was the perfect opportunity to use my new matte top coat to make the “noise” look more realistic as opposed to glossy. :)

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #6: Zimmerman’s Poison Frog

In my opinion, poison dart frogs are the coolest amphibians around. Why? Because they have the most beautiful warning colors! I, previously, have done a design based off of the Blue Poison Dart Frog (click here to see!). Aside from that one, the Zimmerman’s Poison (Dart) Frog is my other favorite, so I had to use it as inspiration! They’re truly beautiful creatures :)
