How's everyone's week going? Mine started out pretty crappy, I was super sick at the start but thankfully I'm feeling better now. Anyways since today's Wednesday it's time for another Mish Mash Challenge! Today's post is kind of a combination post, a challenge day and an inspiration nation day. :)
Also, If you read the title you already know.... It's my blog's birthday!! Woohoo!! One whole year ago I tentatively posted my very first post to empty air. I was afraid of criticism but my love for polish couldn't be stopped! ;) Starting this blog was the very best decision I have ever made and I'm so proud to be a part of this amazing nail community. I can't believe I've made it this far and I can't wait to see how far I can go!
That being said, I want to thank you guys for making this blog what it is, I am going to be posting a giveaway on here soon to show you guys how much I appreciate you! But, I want to know if any of you bloggers out there want to join up with me to make this a collaborative giveaway!!
If you want to join in send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
You guys are the best!!! :)
Anyways, the theme for the challenge is cold. Now when I think cold I always think of rain... yes I know rain isn't always cold BUT it's what comes to my mind so deal with it!! ;) Since I thought of rain my mind immediately went to a tutorial that I've recently seen from the lovely and super talented Lucy of Lucy's Stash! She did a tutorial a short while ago of water drop nails. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them and I'm so excited I finally got the chance to try them out!
To start off this design I started with a base of Color Club Over the Moon. I feel like I use Color Club holos in every manicure I do.... that's ok though because they're gorgeous!! Then I used Navy Blue and White acrylic paints and followed Lucy's tutorial to create the water drops. I top coated with Poshe and was all finished!
I am SUPER proud of how these came out!. Lucy made her tutorial so easy to follow and these nails took me less then and hour and a half! I was amazed LOL! So hopefully rain drops don't count as cheating.
So what do you think guys? Make sure you check out everyone else's cold designs today!
Thanks loves! :)
