ABC Challenge - A Is For... After Party and Aqua!

Nothing To Disclose Purchased By Me

Happy Hump Day!! I'm at home sick (again!!).. I have so much sinus pressure when I stand up, my head feels like it's going to explode! Figured I would take today to rest and work on some posts and reviews and whatnot :)

I'm *trying* to do Erica's Nails and More ABC Nail Art Challenge, but I've been so busy working and being Mom and sick and exhausted that I'm going to be behind for a bit!

The challenge actually started on March 31st, and now it's April 10th.. I have a lot of catching up to do! I thought "A" was a huge challenge and I could not think of anything! Except argyle and I really didn't have time to do something time-consuming :( 

Nicole at Dipped in Lacquer posted this beautiful Autism Awareness mani on Julep's Facebook page and I was trying to think of ways to replicate it using polish I already have, and wouldn't you know.. Julep Carly is pretty darn close to Sinful Colors After Party. The only difference is After Party has bigger turquoise/teal hex glitter in it. Score! :D

I used Sinful Colors Endless Blue as my base color and did a gradient of Sinful Colors After Party. Then I matte-d with NYC Matte Me Crazy.. Seriously, only two fingers were matte! I had to use Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love to get the rest of my nails matte :\ Pinky and ring have NYC and the rest have HC.

Have a great rest of the week! See you soon!! <3
