New31DC: Day 28 - Inspired by Your Favorite Color
Hello dears! Here is Day 28 of The Crumpet's Nail Tarts New 31 Day Challenge, a mani inspired by your favorite color. Of course by now you are probably painfully aware that this is purple for me! I decided to dig out the rhinestones I got last year from Cult Nails and do a purple gem design.
My base polish is 2 coats of Depend Nr. 354, a beautiful lilac color from their new Spring collection. I am on a pastel kick lately, so I hope you aren't sick of seeing them yet! 354 (I hate that these don't have names!) actually has a hit of greenish shimmer in the bottle, but it doesn't show up on the nail. Still a lovely shade though, and I didn't have anything in my collection similar!
I added the rhinestones on to my nails after I did my 2nd coat of polish while it was still tacky. I put a dark purple on the center of each nail at the cuticle, and then on my ring finger I did a harlequin pattern with dark purple and light purple. I did put a layer of top coat over everything when I was done.
Let's see what everyone else did for today!
