Blue Friday mani

Yes, I know. It's Saturday. I totally meant to blog yesterday at work, but I got distracted watching True Blood then trying to find episode 7 >.> So here's yesterday mani.

I started off with 3 coats of OPI's Sahara Sapphire. This is a beautiful, cool periwinkle blue frost that you don't see too often. It's very soothing and easy on the eyes and not in-your-face. Definitely a one of a kind in my collection. Topcoated with SV.

To complete this simple look, I added one layer of Silver Shatter and topcoated a second time. It created a subtle and pretty look that I wished I had tried when I first saw it suggested.

A few days ago, I saw a 31 day challenge (for nails lol) posted on Nail Polish & Gossip on Facebook. I looked over the list and figured what the heck. However, I am gonna put my own twist on it by A) doing one every other or every 2 days and B) using a random number generator to choose what I do. There's only one on the list that I KNOW I can't do, but I switched it out to something I've wanted to try. Here's a look at the list-

1) Red nails
2) Orange nails
3) Yellow nails
4) Green nails
5) Blue nails
6) Violet nails
7) Black + white nails
8) Metallic nails
9) Rainbow nails
10) Gradient nails
11) Polka dot nails
12) Stripes
13) Animal print
14) Flowers
15) Delicate print
16) Tribal print
17) Glitter
18) Half moons
19) Galaxies
20) Water marbled (I SUCK at water marbelling, so this is gonna be dry marbelling)
21) Inspired by a color
22) Inspired by a song
23) Inspired by a movie
24) Inspired by a book
25) Inspired by fashion
26) Inspired by a pattern
27) Inspired by artwork
28) Inspired by a flag
29) Inspired by the supernatural
30) Inspired by a tutorial
31) RECREATE YOUR FAVORITE CHALLENGE!! This one will definitely be done last.

As you can see, some won't be very difficult at all to do; others may give me fits :P Have a great weekend!


  1. This looks so great, Jenette!! Your nails always look amazing. As for the 31 day challenge, there is no way I could do that... I try to make my manis last as long as possible, because I'm still not that great at doing them and it takes me forever to do. Add to that a bouncing dog and it makes it even harder, LoL. Good luck with the challenge though - hope you post all your results here!

  2. Thanks, Red! When I had acrylics, I didn't used to change color very often, but I got bored with it fast. I actually enjoy changing it up, even if it's a bit of a pain :P I wasn't all that great wither, but it just takes practice (I can see how the dog would make it difficult though, lol).
