31 Day Challenge, Day 6: Violet


Let me tell you, guys, day 6 has really been kicking my butt. Personally, I'm not a big fan of violet on myself. I own exactly 3 polishes that fall into that specific range between red and blue, and I don't really plan to add to them. So you get a lavender today. 


This is Essie Nice is Nice, a greyed, blue-ish lavender, stamped with Orly Glitz and BM-316. Two sheer and streaky coats that I didn't bother to do a third one on, because I knew I was going to stamp over it anyway, and then a stamp that didn't fully transfer on my ring finger and smudged on my pinky.. ok, deep breath. 


I think it actually photographs well, but I'm just not feeling it. This is my second attempt at violet since I had a mani fail last night when I first tried it, so I'm kind of ready for this day to be over :D


Here's the purple explosion fail with a splotchy gradient and wrecked stamp. So, who else is looking forward to Black&White day?

  1. I think the violet day is cursed. This was not my favorite day as I had 2 epic fails, but your nails look fantastic! I love the lavender and gold together especially.

    1. Thank you, you're too sweet! I guess I just had a different outcome in my head for the 2nd one, and got disappointed. This challenge is serious business! ;)
