Today I have another challenge post to share with y'all. Sorry I haven't really gotten anything else done since the last challenge post. School has been pretty demanding lately and I don't see myself getting any less busy in the coming week. I hope to post some swatches over the weekend though!
Anyyyywayyyy, here's what I did for today.
For today's challenge mani, I used Essie Going Incognito, which is a nice cool fall-appropriate dark green creme. For my dots and accent nails I used Sally Hansen CSM Gilty Pleasure--a metallic gold.
I've never done anything like this before... I don't even have any dotting tools! But a while back I heard from Alexis Leigh that a bobby pin is a good substitute, and luckily I happen to have PLENTY of those lying around! I admit I didn't have a lot of practice, but I tried to keep my dots consistent and I'm very happy with how these turned out.
But I'd love to know what you think... Please let me know in the comments!
The color combination sort of reminds me of a turtle shell for some reason. That's not even how turtles look! I think it's just the pattern of dots or something.
Also I'm just now seeing how much gold polish was left on my fingers. >.< That stuff is sneaky. Forgive my messiness!
I have one last pic of both hands! I'm getting pretty steady when it comes to painting my right hand with my left, so I wanted to give dotting a try and see how it compares.
...Yeah, not the best. But who can blame me? I'm right handed! :P
Okay, okay, I'll keep practicing.
That's all I've got for this post. Friday is water marbling, which is another first for me. D: I'm really glad right now that I have Fridays off from school, because I'm sure water marbling is going to be quite an adventure.
