So I'm done with school now and I moved out of the dorm today. It was a bit sad to leave, but I'm home for the summer now which means I'll be figuring out what I need to pull out of my totes for the summer. I'm a little mad though because I bought a bottle of OPI Silver Shatter almost two weeks ago along with a bottle of Planks a Lot and Sparrow Me the Drama. The PaL and SMtD came last Thursday when they were expected to come, but the Silver Shatter hasn't come and it should have about five days ago. Grrr. If it does come to my college mailbox, it's going to end up sitting there all summer which sucks since I want to use what I bought! Okay, the rant portion of this post is over now.
Last week Fiona and I were tagged by The Kiwi With The Crazy Nails in a challenge post. What this challenge is is that you blindly pick three polishes out of your collection and with the three polishes you pick you have to come up with a nail design. We both accepted the challenge. When I picked my three colors, I got Nicole by OPI My Lifesaver, Sinful Colors San Fransisco, and Color Club Fashion Addict. I had picked a creme, a shimmer, and a holo polish. All I could think was 'what the hell am I going to do with these colors?'. I thought that I'd try doing some branches with dotted flowers on them, but them I ended up going a totally different way once I started.
I used My Lifesaver as the base color, and then borrowing Fiona's nail art design brush and painted San Fransisco on to make some leaves. I was going for branches, but once I started to use my dotting tool to try and make the flowers, I decided to try and make lilac flowers at the last minute. And I actually ended up liking it for three colors I thought for sure this wasn't going to work!
And if you didn't know, the Purple Lilac is the official flower of New Hampshire. But now it's time to pick three other people for this challenge: Amber at My Nail Graffiti, Whitney @ Elemental Styles, and Annelise at No Naked Nails!. Good luck ladies, and pick your poison well!
