A Challenge

May 13th, 2011

It’s been quiet around here for a while, and I just want to inform you that I’m not dead! I’ve just had a lot to do lately, which means less time for nails and blogging.  But now I finally got something to show you.

I saw this challenge at Annie’s Colors a few weeks ago, and it sounded really fun so I had to give it a try as well. What you do is pick out three colors from your stash without looking, and then combining them in a manicure. I have three drawers in my IKEA Helmer that are dedicated to polishes, so I randomly chose one from each of them. First one out was China Glaze Harmony, a medium purple, and then I got hold of Color Club Electronica which is more of a blurple. So far so good. The last polish I ended up with was Nfu Oh 60, with orange/green flakies. That one made me a little confused as how to combine it with the others. I felt I needed some time to think about what to do with these, so I wore Harmony alone for a week until I made the full manicure.

The chosen ones: China Glaze Harmony, Color Club Electronica, Nfu Oh 60.

I thought I would fail miserably with the manicure so I didn’t put much time into the application. I used Harmony as a base, and then I applied Electronica on top for a Ruffian design. Then I layered Nfu Oh 60 on top of Electronica. The Ruffian doesn’t look too bad for a first try, if I do say so myself. After that I applied Nfu Oh 60 on top of Electronica.


Still not sure if the flakies work with the rest of the colors, it’s not the colors I normally would have combined.

Trying to mimic alizarine claws wonderful shots… big fail! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to keep my nails in a straight line..

Have you done this challenge? If not, I think you should!

    Jag tyckte att det där blev snyggt! Jag gillar verkligen ruffians men det är så himla svårt att måla.. Sen gör ruffian att naglarna ser kortare ut än de är så då behöver man lite längre än vad jag har nu för att det ska se riktigt bra ut. På dina långa fina naglar passar det mycket bättre 🙂

    Jag försökte mig också på Annies utmaning, men det gick ju sådär bra :p

    Jag tyckte ditt blev riktigt bra, färgerna passade ihop ändå

      Jag tycker din blev bra med tanke på vilka lack du fick, det var inte helt lätt. Jag hade nog lite tur med att det ändå passade rätt bra ihop, det enda jag var osäker på var hur Nfu Oh-lacket skulle passa med det andra.

    Snyggt! Jag skulle aldirg få till en sådan utmaning. Skulle nog få ett grönt, ett rött och ett brunt… 😀
