I actually did this nail design last Thursday, but I was busy enjoying my first few days of summer break to post about it, but now that it is the first full week of summer break, I have found some time.
This design was #13: Mix It Up.
The description of these nails was to paint all your nails one color and then do an accent nail on your ring finger. I normally don't really like to do one nail a completely different color with nothing that ties it into the other nails, so I'm glad this was a challenge because otherwise I would not have tried this.
The colors I used were Finger Paints "Drawn to this Shade" (no surprise here, this is only about the 10th time I've done a post on this color). But I did use this new color my mother got me a couple of months ago. It is called "Stranger Tides" from OPI's Pirates of the Carribean collection. It was only a dollar at this nail store that was going out of business.
|Actual color of the dusty green|
I really didn't know when or how I was going to wear this dusty pale green color, but it contrasts nicely with the coral and I have started to really like it. I used one coat of the coral and two coats of the dusty green because it goes on pretty streaky at first.
I also think that this accent nail is really cool. My mom and brother, who's home from college, don't really understand why one color is painted differently. I just tell them "17 Challenge" and they don't bother me anymore. Lol =]
I hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day...and I'll see you next time for another edition of the 17 challenge (or a random post or something).
