#31DC2013 – Orange Nails

So I’ll be posting twice on a lot of days to keep up with this challenge 🙂 I hope no-one minds!

I would have loved to do my fox nails again, but I figured it would be a cop-out to recreate a nail art that I’ve already done before! So for the 31-Day Challenge, I decided to try a dry marble.

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 9 – Rainbow

For this one, I was inspired by Polish Alcoholic’s Day 3 (Green) mani – such a simple concept, but so stunning !

I didn’t pull it off quite as well as she did, but it is a great way to use lots of different colours in a mani, and I was quite pleased with how it came out (though the orange was a bit thin in places).

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 6 – Sun

This time I’ve kept it rather simple ! One of my favourite mani styles at the moment is a ruffian mani, and it’s blissfully easy to do, which is great half way through a nail art challenge !

I’ve always wondered if a double-ruffian would be any good, and I’m rather pleased with the result ! I started with yellow, then orange, and finished with a neon coral, as that’s my favourite nail colour when it’s sunny outside 🙂

Hallowe’en Swatch – China Glaze – Breakin’ (730)

Here’s a quick Hallowe’en swatch – the beautiful pumpkin orange that is Breakin’ from China Glaze :

As you can see, this is a lovely orange with a golden shimmer to it.

It applies pretty nicely and three coats gives good (but not great) opacity :

It’s not too thick or thin and dries in average time.

The gold shimmer comes out as well on the nail as it does in the bottle. Lovely for Hallowe’en !
