Day 23 – Advent Calendar Nail Challenge

Rudolph!!

The only thing I have to say about this manicure is about the baby blue base color I used….it’s a “Cynthia Rowley New York” polish that I picked up at “Winner’s”.   In my opinion….it is the absolute worst formula I have in my collection, and would suggest that if you ever come across this polish – steer clear…waste. of. money.  There was no name on the bottle, but an engraved number 53 on the bottle bottom.

As you can see in the photo – it looks extremely sporadically grainy.  That look, is with only one coat of the actual polish, and THREE coats of Seche Vite.

Day 22 – Advent Calendar Nail Challenge

My manicure quality, and my cuticles (!) are seriously taking a beating.  I am so sorry for how crappy these mani’s are getting (and late!), but I will most definitely finish out this Challenge as best I can, and before Christmas!!

Goodness, after I post this – I am having a marathon manicuring / wrapping / no sleep 30 hours before we’re all sitting opening up the presents I just lovingly wrapped….lol  It’s all good!  Merry Christmas!!!!  (almost!!!)

This manicure is “Fruit cake” themed:

Lots of  sweet treats to choose from for today’s challenge!  Sweets & Candy

But, most of my fantastic ideas were to difficult for me 🙂  So, I went with Chocolate and Sprinkles.

And….the sprinkles were picked off within ten minutes of taking these pictures 🙂  I suppose they aren’t very practical!  Yummy looking though, I think 🙂

Let’s see, tomorrows challenge is…..oh no….Water Marble.   The only theme I was truly not looking forward too…. eeek!

This mani was so much fun 🙂  I finally had an excuse to use the flocking powder I picked up at the art store the other day!

Day 18 – Advent Calendar Nail Challenge

SOMETHING CLASSIC

This theme is so wide open to interpretation, I’m very excited to see what everyone comes up with!

My “Something Classic” is simply a bright red manicure.  In terms of manicures, french or red are classics 🙂

But of course, I just wouldn’t feel right about one of MY manicures…if I didn’t add some glitter ! 🙂  Because, you know….I LOVE GLITTER!!!  (and also a few studs to cover up a smudge on my thumb nail…heh heh)
