31 day challenge: color family

7 followers!?! I am so excited!!!! Thank you all for taking the time to drop by and check this out :0) You are awesome!

Sorry for not posting yesterday... Had to be responsible and get organized. I now officially have both of my nail racks up and am working on getting a good workstation set up.

I am yet again a day behind on the 31 day challenge, but I am so excited for the mani I have today. Day 6 was a color family. Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with greenish blue ( or Tiffany blue) and I have been waiting to use my new bottle of China glaze "For Audrey"....I love Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's, so its only logical I would fall in love with this color. Now before the pics I want to give credit where credit is due. This is not an original design. It is based on a nail post I saw on Pintrest. The picture was not watermarked and did not lead to any page but is titled "modern nails" search for it on Pintrest to see the real deal (it uses different colors and is waaaaaay better than mine). If anyone happens to know who the original artist is please let me know so I can fully credit them.

Now for the nails!!

Again my pictures are not the greatest and don't show the colors as well as I'd hope but I am really enjoying these.

So for these nails I used 3 colors...

I was hoping to get more of a contrast between them but two of them wound up being very similar as you can see ( told you I loved this color family ;0) )
My base was China glaze "For Audrey", I then taped off different sections and layered Sally Hansen's "The Real Teal" and an amazing creamy indie glitter called "Mint Mondition". This was another one of the indies that Jess from love for lacquer sent me, I apologize but I am not sure who is the talented person that developed it ( again if you happen to know, please comment so I can give credit to the polish maker). After letting all of that dry ( for as long as I could handle) I gave some definition to the edges using silver striping tape.

Please let me know what you all think, personally I think its my favorite one that I have posted here so far.

Well, I'm off to bed. Hope you all have a wonderful night!
Keep it polished!
<3 Jess
