Shrek Green Nails


It's Day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge and the prompt for it is Green Nails.  I don't use green very often so I didn't have any green nail art I hadn't shared yet.  I rushed to do this nail art a couple days ago so that I'd have time to post it.  I used an old OPI green polish I have called "Who the Shrek Are You?"  I tried to keep the nail art simple but still ended up having a few issues. 

I painted the chevron stripes on the accent nail and it looked okay on the night that I did it but the next morning I found that the yellow polish had gotten somewhat faded and smeary looking. I think it's a polish I need to toss because it seemed watery when I used it and also gave me problems when I did my Flash nail art. I quickly attempted to fix it with a different yellow polish before heading to work. The green had started to look bad too so I definitely regretted skipping a top coat in my rush the night before.

Despite it all, it still looks pretty good from far so here's a photo of it from farther away. I randomly found Shrek cereal at the store that same day so I felt compelled to buy it since it matched my nail color.
 

After I did this green challenge, I looked over my calendar again and the prompts for the rest of the 31 days. Although I have some of the nail art done already, there are still quite a few I need to do in addition to preparing posts for them all so it will be an even bigger challenge than I thought!  I may end up needing a few extra days but we'll see how it goes!

The 31 Day Challenge (#31DC2015) is a challenge where participants do nail art inspired by 31 prompts and post one per day.  I won't be painting my nails every day but I'm challenging myself to try to at least post each day using nail art I have yet to share in addition to new ones I do.  Not sure if I'll be able to keep it up with my schedule but I'm going to try! Thanks for following along!

Yellow 5SOS Nail Art

Yellow 5SOS Nail Art

Today I'm sharing yellow 5SOS inspired nail art! Day 3 of the 31 Day Challenge is yellow and I'm excited to post these because they are a part of a happy memory. 5SOS is short for 5 Seconds of Summer and is a band from Australia.  My sister is a fan and got concert tickets for her birthday so I made plans to visit so I could go with her and all my sisters.  Before I went, I painted my nails yellow and black and painted the band's tally logo on my thumb.

The yellow I used as the base is a polish by Sinful Colors called "Let's Meet."  It's so bright and is my favorite yellow polish I own right now.  After it dried, I used tape like I did for my Disneyland 60 nails to create the shape of the triangles and filled it in with black polish.

I also helped my sister with her nails. She did the base colors and the heart and I did the letters and the thumbnail. I think they looked great!  Our nails were concert ready!

We had a lot of fun at the concert! I love how this one came out and it's special to me because of the reason I did it.

Luckily this mani lasted a long time- they still looked good when I got back so I also paired it with my Figment outfit at the D23 Expo. The yellow matched well and someone even pointed it out when they noticed my nails. Here's a picture from the Expo that you can see my nails in.

Pinapple Nail Art / Dole Whip Disneybound

Pineapple Nail Art

Day 2 of the 31 Day Challenge is orange so I'm sharing some pineapple nail art that I did.  I painted my nails with a bright orange nail polish and then painted pineapples on my ring fingernail and my thumbnail.  I used a toothpick to add the lines to the pineapple.  When I first did this nail art, I wasn't happy with it but looking back at the photos I actually really like how it came out!

I did this nail art to accessorize a Dole Whip inspired outfit that I wore to Disneyland.  I thought pineapples went with it perfectly!
