Laid Back 31 Day Challenge-Pink!

Hi there! So we are already 4 days into the challenge and I'm just now doing a post.  Good thing it's called the Laid Back challenge!  I have been doing all the days, I just have been posting on Facebook.  You do know to look for me there right?  Just click here.  One of these days I will figure out how to put it on the side of the blog. Maybe.

Anyhoo, back to the nails! Today is pink, and while I had no intention whatsoever of doing a Valentine's Day mani, I decided to do one because pink + hearts = opportunity to go crazy girly.

                                Hearts and flowers and heart shaped flowers!

Ok lets list the polishes used in this, are you ready?
Base: Ulta Encore Pink with one coat of Essie No Pre-Nup. The Essie is a warm pink jelly and I used it over the Ulta because I didn't have the right pink I was looking for.
The big hearts: China Glaze Surreal Appeal
Hearts/flowers: OPI Elephatastic Pink, Zoya Kimber and Julep Joan.
Dots: Julep Joan.
I am really happy with this mani because I took my time doing it and I think it paid off.  I tend to rush things and then wonder why it looks like crap, lol. I also love how over the top happy and cutesy it is.  It reminds me of spring. What do you think? Too much? Not enough? Hate pink and you're skipping this post entirely? ;)
Oh! I forgot to add that I have a winner for the Giveaway!  It was sooo fun doing that, and I will definitely be doing another one!
I forgot to add the others doing the challenge! Ok, lets see if I can get this to work.

  2. I love it but I totally agree on the rushing stuff ups. I always rush (mainly because its the middle of the night and I want to go to bed) but most of the time I'm not overly happy with the results. Must slow down!

  4. Beautiful! Good idea for a weekly nail polish. Consider Clear Nail Antimicrobial Solution in removing nail polish. It's available from your favorite beauty supply online store :)

    1. Thank you for stopping by Jessica. Could you please refrain from advertising in your comments? I don't mean to be rude, but I'm not associated with any products and I don't want any confusion.

    I know what you mean about rushing, I do the same thing then wonder why it doesn't look like I want to! ;-) Can't wait to see your next mani!
