31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 2 – Orange Nails!!
We’re on Day 2 of the 31 Day Challenge 2012 that I’m doing with Sam and Cris, and today’s focus is orange nails! I’m SUPER excited with how this one turned out so I’ll just move right along and let the photos speak for themselves. That and it’s 2am and I’m sleepy.
Get ready for some photo-heavy amazingness!
31DC2012 Day 2 – Orange Nails
Koi Nails!! Yes, there’s some white in there but OMG I totally love these! I’m sad that I only get to sport them for a day before I have to do my Day 3 nails. I first fell in love with this manicure when I discovered Mimi and her blog Makeup Withdrawal. Mimi does SUCH amazing manicures and her nails are to die for!
I started off with one thin coat of Milani White On The Spot as my underwear. Then I added two coats of Orly Au Champagne and let that dry for a few minutes. After that I sporadically added on splotches of Wet n Wild Creepy Pumpkin. Finally I used Wet n Wild Black Creme to add the koi fish stamps to each of my nails. If you check out Mimi’s post that I linked to above it’ll give you more details on the stamp I used. I think I’m gonna use it again for tomorrow’s nails, it has so many fun patterns! ^_^
And here’s some macro shots of my little fishies. It really looks so much like koi fish! ♥
That’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed this manicure as much as I enjoyed creating it! Don’t forget to head over to Sam and Cris’s blogs to see their Day 2 looks! And I’ll see you all tomorrow for Day 3 of the challenge (and my birfday )!!
