Sometimes challenges are a good thing.. They force you to think. Last year I tried to complete the 31 day challenge but failed epically because I felt too confined. Ahhh! But you all know that I love a good challenge. ;) So instead, this year I decided that I'm going to do the ABC Nail Challenge. That's right. For each post, I'm going to do something that begins with a letter of the alphabet. :) And no, I'm not this original to think of this by myself. xD I was inspired to do this by Rachel of Rewdoesnails and @atxlacquerista on Instagram. :) I probably won't be doing a new post everyday (because I still gotta have some fun with swatches and such ;)) but I will go in order with my ABC's. :) Hopefully this challenge will be lot more successful than my other.. I have a feeling it will though! ;)
So phew! Now that I've explained what the ABC Nail Challenge is, lets see what I came up with today. A is for Aztec nails. :)
So the only polishes I used were Neutral Beauty by Sephora as the base and Yellow Polka Dot Bikini by China Glaze as the yellow highlights. The black is acrylic paint.
Here is a quick swatch of Neutral Beauty by Sephora (no topcoat). I was looking for a pretty nude and I ended up buying this one. I realized it's actually more of a tan/a darker nude... It's still pretty but the quest to find the perfect nude is still on. >.<
I really like how these tribal nails turned out to actually look more "Aztec-y" than my other ones. I think it's because of the tan base. ;)
Why do I have so many different hand poses...? O_o I'm sorry! I love them all!
I also forgot to mention that this is the first time that I've been inspired by clothing. ;)
And yup. I was inspired by a dress at the Loft store. ;) I took a picture of it on my camera but this is a better photo from their website. The dress is so cute in person! But go ahead and check it out online too. ;)
Phew! A is doooooone. Let's see what I have up my sleeve for B. :D
