31 Day Challenge. Day 15 Delicate Print.

Hi all!

 I'm so glad to be back on the computer today after yesterday, it was just not fun. Anyway, today is Day 15 we are officially half way through this challenge!!! Today is delicate print, now I went about this by either wanting to used fishnet print or lace, and well the fishnet didn't work out so well so I went with lace, then I though about using some piece of old fabric with lace that we don't use and sponging it to get the effect on my nails. I had seen it once in a tutorial and thought it was cool... nope that didn't work either. This whole process has been trial and error and I love that I am discovering new things everyday I work on these challenges.

So looking to my stamping plates, which are coming in handy I must say there was one lace like print but I didn't like the whole nail design so I took a side of it and used that instead because it looked more lace like then the other half.

So I did strips of lace, my base color that I used was Fairy Teal by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, which I picked up at CVS for 75% off! It came to like two bucks that's about 6 dollars less then what they normally are! I also got two of the highly anticipated glitters from the Wet 'n' Wild Spoiled collection, Shuffle the Deck and Trust Fund baby!

Okay so here are today's pictures! Enjoy! The top one was taken with flash and the bottom one with no flash.

Fairy Teal is a dusty teal creme that is just so pretty in the bottle and on the nail! This would be a great base color to the chunky teal glitter I saw from L.A. Girl! Two coats and its wayyy opaque I almost went with just one!   I think changing my polish everyday is starting to take a toll on my nails, even though I scrub them clean after taking off nail polish with hot water and a nail brush and moisturizing I still feel like something is missing, huh I'll figure it out I'm sure.

Tomorrow is Tribal Print and I have no idea what to do! If you guys have any suggestions please leave it below in the comments I would LOVE to hear them!
