Polka Dot Nails For #31DC2016

31DC2016 Polka Dots - Essence Rock My World and Mdu Silver - Swatch

It is polka dot day for the 31 day challenge and I was torn between the pretty dotticures I saw for the 2015 challenge and sticking to a true polka dot which are evenly spaced.  I ended up stamping the dots to make them fairly large and uniform in size and spacing using a silver […]

Zoya Holo Gradient Nails For #31DC2016

31DC2016 Gradient Nails - Zoya Aurora Storm

Gradient nails using Zoya Aurora and Storm for #31DC2016 Working on a lighting system for winter when I get less natural light.  I think it looks ok but need to add a second light source as it is not quite bright enough for product shots and there are too many harsh shadows.  Works for nail […]

Days 1 through 4 of the #31DC2016 31 Day Challenge hosted by Chalkboard Nails

I had planned on participating in #31DC2016 but somehow September just crept up on me and before I realized it, it was the 3rd and I had not done any of them.  Not giving up, I spent my day playing with nail polishes and making a huge mess.  Since I am behind, I cheated a […]
