Hi everyone, happy Hump Day! Wednesdays always make me laugh now because of that commercial with "happier than a camel on Hump Day". I've always loved camels for some reason and I think that commercial is so cute. Yesterday was my first day at the gym and I thought I did pretty well. I made it 35 minutes on the inclined treadmill and am actually not too sore this morning. I am going back for more today.
This weekend I did a marathon of Halloween manis and today is my most festive one. When I think of Halloween I think of black, orange, green, and purple so I wanted to create something with all of those colors. I usually don't do skittle manis because I think I'm bad at them but I like this one because it's slightly more uniform. I will describe the colors below.
Below are the colors I used:
Pointer: China Glaze Flying Dragon
Middle: OPI Stand in Lime For Days
Ring: Zoya Suri
Pinky: Essie The More the Merrier
I started with a different base color on each finger and then taped off a diagonal using blue painter's tape. I then alternated colors on the tips. The purples got a shimmery orange, Sinful Colors Cloud 9, and the greens got black, Essie Licorice. I then rotated colors and used the bottle brushes to create stripes. The black stripes are Essie Licorice and the orange stripes are OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours! Finally I finished off with dots of China Glaze Glitter All The Way, which is a mix of green, gold, purple, and either orange or red glitter.
Overall I was happy with this one. I need to work on my freehand stripes but other than that I was pretty pleased. What do you think?
