Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #16: Queen
Today’s theme is queen! At first I was going to do something relevant to Queen Frostine from CandyLand, but I scrapped that thought and went with Queen Elizabeth II. I may not live in the UK, but Queen Elizabeth II is adored here in the USA! She’s always dressed to the T, yet her outfits are simple and not “busy”. For some reason I wanted my nails to be purple yet keep it in the “simple” category, so I searched until I found a photo of her in purple/violet. To top it off, I debated between rhinestones and a “jelly sandwich”. Sigh.
*The polish I used has a jelly finish, so for it to be completely opaque would take more than the 3 layers I already have on here. I knew if I did any more layers, it would not be pretty.
And, as always and until further notice, disregard the index nail. It’s still jankity. :(

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #5: Caribbean Sunset

Today’s theme is sunset, so I wanted to do more of a cool-toned image. I love seeing pictures of Caribbean sunsets and I haven’t done anything with birds or glitter gradients in a long time!

I also needed an excuse to use some of my new glitter :)

Yesterday, I reblogged a post from Kelly (basecoat-topcoat) that introduced the nail challenge we’re doing. In case you didn’t go to her blog to read about it, here’s what it is:

Kelly and I have teamed up to do a daily/weekly nail challenge together, in which we will create designs based on randomly-chosen themes that are created by us and YOU, our followers! What I really love about this is that you all get to be involved and have a hand in what we do. If you want to participate and see a theme be painted, send in your ideas… We don’t mind what it is or how silly or goofy it is! The current list is on her blog: click the IDEA LIST (or click here!). You can send your ideas to either Kelly or me (I will send them to her) and it’ll be added to the list!

I’ve always wanted to tag-team with another nail artist/do a collab-like project, and this such an awesome way of doing it! I hope you take the time to look at our designs and experience this journey with us :)
