March Clairestelle8 Nail Art Challenge - Flying

Sunday, March 20, 2016

I feel like nail art challenges really bring the best out in me. I don't always push my own nail art boundaries, so it's nice to have the push to do something unique. That said, today's mani is a fairly simplistic take on the @clairestelle8mar challenge prompt of "flying".

Let's start off with the base for this look. I wanted something that reminded me of a bright sunny sky, so I used Bliss Polish Thirsty. It has a pretty green shimmer that's ridiculously hard to capture. You guys are going to have to trust me that it exists.

Bliss Polish- Thirsty

light blue nail polish with green shimmer

Formula: Nice consistency
Finish: Blue crelly with multichrome flakies and green shimmer
Coverage: 3 coats
Notes: This one is way prettier than my photos would lead you to believe. The green shimmer is just perfect.

For the final look I stamped over Thirsty using Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Pronto Purple, and MoYou London Mother Nature 06. 

Products used

I think you could have taken the prompt a number of different ways, but I opted for hot air balloons because I hadn't used that part of the plate before. 

On a more personal note I wanted to talk a little bit about the blog itself. You may have noticed that I'm no longer posting Monday through Friday. From here on out (or at least through summer) I will be posting on a semi flexible schedule. I aim to have at least two to three posts a week, but it's going to depend on how busy I am. New collection swatches will always be posted no later two weeks after I receive them, but anything beyond that will be on that casual schedule. I'm opting for this kind of a posting schedule for a number of reasons. The weather is starting to get nice, and I want to spend more time outside working in the yard, and going on hikes. The other reason is that with all of the content creation I have less time to browse and enjoy everyone else's nail art. I love the social aspect of blogging, and I would like to get back to more of that. I hope that you guys stick around, but I understand if you don't. If you want to help me get back to that social part of blogging leave me a comment! I love chatting with you all =)
