Nail Art Challenge (Day 1)

So a few girls decided to do a challenge. Post a new nail art picture for 31 days. I thought it might be fun to at least TRY and do it...

1 of 31

Worn is Puddle Hop and BM19.

I'm home sick from work. I feel like total crap, so this color cheers me up a bit. Happy Wednesday :)

Huemorista In Bloom Collection

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I want to show you Huemorista's Spring Line.

I got 3 out of the 4 (the only one missing is "Kiss the Tulips").

I tried to pick a favorite, but I honestly can't. I was so impatient to try them on that I didn't let the glitter come off the bottom, so the lack of glitter in these pics is purely my fault. I've turned them upside down and will remember to be a bit more patient next time :|

The best way I can describe Hidden Rainbow is a grayish Greige (it's more gray than beige). It kinda reminded me of Glitter in the Air, or more like what GitA should've been like. This is only 2 coats, so I think that with another coat, it would've been completely opaqued out. Again, my shotty application. But, I'm sick and I had taken too much medication, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it! It has big silver hex glitters, with smaller red, green, orange, and blue glitters.

I was most excited about Dewed. It is a beautiful Jade color with tiny holo glitters. The application was super easy and with 2 coats there was no VNL. I think if I had to pick a favorite, this one would be it. I have a lot of minty greens, but nothing like this!

Here you can really see what not waiting for the glitter to unsettle can do to application. There is a ton of glitter in Puddle Hop that I missed out on for being so flippin' impatient! This is a really cool blue, a bit darker than Bubble Bath; it's way more of a summer color. I went a little crazy with the Photoshop and gave myself crazy manequin hands. They look so weird!

Nails by Huemorista

One of my many obsessions is creating things, so any time when someone else shares that same passion...I HAVE to show support :)

So, let me start off by saying how talented Jayna is. I have yet to successfully franken anything; much less the amazing colors she's come up with. I picked Lavender Hush and Bubble Bath from the "Sweet Serenity" collection and Sex on the Moon from the "Naughty" collection.

How adorable is the packaging???

Lavender Hush:
LH is from the "Sweet Serenity" collection. It's a cool lavender with a shimmer.

Sex on the Moon:
Ok, to be quite honest I mostly got this because of the name. How cool is it? But this is actually a pretty amazing polish. It's a darker purplish gray. This has bigger flecks that are alot more visible than in BB. It also has tiny holo glitters. Who doesn't love a bit of holo in their life? Anything with this a recipe for success in my opinion. Suprisingly enough, I think this is my fav of the 3 and I can definitely see myself using this the most. I'm a sucker for greige/blurple. Yes, I know this isn't either....but I like color combos the best. I like that the flecks aren't too visible (I don't feel too comfortable wearing "crazy" colors to work), so this is perfect for everyday wear.

Bubble Bath:
I can't wait for the summer to get here...I plan to rock this all summer long. It reminds me of the color of a pool. I wish my camera had had enough juice in it to be able to take a picture of it in the sun. When the light hits it, the flecks reflect and in combination with the blue, it just looks really "cool" (as in water...not being stuck up, lol)

I can't wait for her spring line to come out!
