31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Week 3 Roundup

Hey there, friends!

The third week has been tackled and all of the hard prompts are left!  I am very happy to have made it through this far.  It hasn't been too bad!  Now last year, I fell off the #31dc2013 wagon on Day 23 (which is tomorrow!!).  So I am even more determined to push on through to the end this year.  The last week of prompts is a little more challenging and requires a bit more creativity to come up with new nail art ideas that you haven't already done this month yet.  But this third week is fun!  The prompts are more specific.  So even if you can't think of some creative twist, you can always fall back on the standard nail art technique for the prompt that day.  Enough blabbing...onto some nail art!

31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Week 2 Roundup

Hey friends!

Yes!  I made it through another week of the #31dc2014!  I liked this week of prompts as they gave me a little more direction for nail art ideas.  Things are going to be getting challenging here in the last two weeks.  The prompts really require some imagination and creativity to produce meaningful nail art.  At least that is how I feel.  If you want to follow along with me each day, check out my Instagram account.  But let's get right into my creations for the second week of nail art craziness!

31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Week 1 Roundup

Hey lovelies!

So the yearly nail art challenge is upon us.  If you are not familiar with the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge, stop by Chalkboard Nails for more info.  But basically, you push yourself to create new nail art to share every day for 31 day based on a list of prompts.   I have been posting my creations daily on my Instagram account but decided to do weekly recap blog posts.  So here are my manicure for the first week of the challenge!

 Oh my gosh! I am so excited to be able to share these new polishes from Morgan Taylor with you all. They were also nice enough to send me an extra set to give away on my Instagram. I really love this collection. These are not like any colors I have in my personal stash.

It is a soft dusty grey blue cream. This color is a perfect transition into fall. This is two light coats, no top coat. 

A fine copper glitter with holo sparkles in a light tinted base. I had to take a couple pictures of this baby to capture it’s beauty. I feel like a good Witch would definitely wear this color in Fall. Seen here is two coats, with top coat.

Daylight bulb.

A light dusty mauve cream. There is a slight iridescent shimmer but it cannot be seen once I applied it to my nails. I cannot say enough about these colors for Fall. Who knew such soft shades could be achieved to wear in the upcoming months. Seen here is two coats, with top coat. 

The perfect nude cream! I am a lover of nudes. It is always my go to when all else fails. This polish shade is a tad darker that OPI MVIB. This is my FAVORITE from this collection. Used Hocus Pocus and Now You See Me on accent nail. This is three coats, no top coat. 

This is a gorgeous chocolate brown shimmer polish with micro gold glitter. It is beautiful on its own. Seen here is two coats, without top coat.

A light dusty mint green leaning a little more blue. This is my second favorite J. Seen here is two coats, no top coat.

Morgan Taylor is 3 FREE and can be found at major salons and purchased at Loxa Beauty

Digital Nails - Doge Collection

Much excite.  Many amaze. Wow. 

Today I have a super fun trio of polishes from Digital Nails to share with you!  I have been a huge Digital Nails fan ever since I met the maker, Raph, on a trip to Austin this year.  I went to visit my bestie-boo and blog mate, Amy, who introduced me to Raph.  The three of us had a wonderful time talking about polish and music and nerdy things while playing with glitter.  What fun!  So, I was very honored when Raph asked me to review for her.  This trio of awesome polishes are inspired by one of the best internet memes, Doge.  If you are unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is Doge, you can check out some examples here.  The names of each of these polishes is the inner monologue that Doge would have when checking out your nails.  I now have a hard time typing out comments on Instagram without doing my own Doge impressions!
