On to the challenges! Let's see...... Day 16's theme was "a color you used to love but now hate". Let me tell, I wouldn't even think about keeping a color I hate, so I don't hate what I do have, but there are a few that I've become very meh about. For this mani, I used OPI's Simply Smashing from last year's Serena Williams' duos. SS is a very unique color, I haven't seen anything like it since or before its release. It's described as a tennis ball green, but it's a little more gold in my opinion. I really did like it when I got it, but now...... I think this may be the second time I've worn lol. This is two coats that I jazzed with stamping from my Shany plates, SH01.
Day 17's challenge was called "a color that you think is over rated". This one was a little tough. I don't normally buy colors/brands that people are "OMG' about. I'm not haven't saying I haven't, I'm just saying that's not my way lol. The only one that I can think of, recently, that I did buy was OPI's Congeniality is my Middle Name. For the record, I had bought Swimsuit..... Nailed it! months ago online, since no one locally got the Miss Universe collection. I got CIMMN while in Tenessee for Christmas last year. I like the color, don't get me wrong, but it's not as awesomesauce as I thought it would :P I believe I did 2 coats of this, after shaking the crap out of it to get the glitter mixed, and added some stamping using my Red Angel plates, RA-102.
On to Day 18's challenge, "a color you used to covet"! This was easy for me. There was one polish that I wanted to so badly that, when it popped for an awesome price, I grabbed it so fast. And I'm not the only one that lusts after it; I see lots of people lemming for this color. What is it, you ask. Why, I'm talking about OPI's DS Glamour! I'll just let the pics talk.
And, just because I felt like bragging about what I put on my mom's nails :P Two coats of OPI's Pink Friday, two coats of Finger Paints' Twisted, with one coat of Matte-ly in Love from Hard Candy.
Have a great Friday!!
