YES!!! It's finally here!!! Erica at Erica's Nails and More is hosting the February Nail Art Challenge!! I'm so excited!! I participated in the last challenge she hosted and it seems like ages ago!!
Because February only has 28 days, it's a 9-day challenge instead of 10, with one challenge only being 2 days to squeeze in a special Valentine's Day mani! :D Here is the line up!!
I actually started early on this challenge, but since I'm just now typing up the blog post for it, it really doesn't matter, does it?? :P
Day 1 is Galaxy Nails and I am sooo glad this was the first theme, because I had so much fun with this!! I took a ton of pictures to try and capture the awesomesauce that are the galaxies I created. Can't wait to do this again!
After applying base coat, I applied 2 coats of my current favorite black, Milani Black Swift. I cut a cosmetic wedge in half, put a little bit of Orly Mysterious Curse on an index card and used the sponge to apply the first color of my nebulas. Then I used Julep Daphne and Sinful Colors Jungle Trail around Mysterious Curse. Added a bit of Sinful Colors Boom Boom and because it was too pink, dabbed on Sinful Colors Snow Me White, then added more Boom Boom because it was too white, LOL. Added a bit more Mysterious Curse and I was done with that part! Grabbed my dotting tool and used Snow Me White to add some random stars. Think maybe they came out too big, though! Fished a few glitters out of OPI Pirouette My Whistle and placed them randomly, as well. Added a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust and 2 coats of HK Top Coat and I was done!! I think it took me about an hour to do :D
