31DC2013 Day 31: Honor Nails You Love

Hey all!

Today has been a lazy day for me. I caught up a little on one of the animes that I'm watching and then I fell asleep. It doesn't help that it's been raining for the past couple of days so the sleepiness just came to me lol.
I realized when I woke up that I hadn't posted my nails for today yet, I had them done and everything! Oh well, lazy me. 

This is the last day of the challenge for me. Originally, I was so hesitant in doing the challenge. I remember posting the challenge list on Instagram and then just being like, "What did I get myself into for this month?". But I really liked doing the challenge and coming up with all these designs and learning new techniques. A lot of the nails that I did, some of them were my first attempts! I'm really proud of myself and these designs. I think I improved a lot from before the challenge. So for that, I'm really glad that I did it. I'll be honest, it'll be awhile until I do another one though lol.

Today's prompt is honor nails you love. One of my favorite nail bloggers is MrCandiipants. Her designs are really unique. She always has something different with each of her designs. I watched one of her Youtube videos on how to do these easy watercolor nails with polka dots and I wanted to recreate that look today.

Colors Used:
Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing
Color Club's Take Me to Your Chateau
Sinful Colors Why Not
Sinful Colors Cinderella 
Sinful Colors Endless Blue

These nails were really simple to do! I first painted my nails one coat of Color Club's Take Me to Your Chateau as the base color. With a makeup sponge, I brushed on Sinful Colors Why Not, Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing, Sinful Colors Cinderella, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, and Color Club's Take Me to Your Chateau onto a makeup sponge. 

I dabbed the sponge a couple times on a scrap piece of paper and then sponged it on my nails. Once that dried, I added polka dots with Take Me to Your Chateau using my detail brush.

I really like these nails. Originally she did the design with orange and yellows, but I think the blue looks really pretty too. I love how these are so simple to do.

Wow, so that's the end of the challenge! I hope you all enjoyed my designs for this challenge. Next week, I'll be going back to doing swatches and nail art. I have some really cute nail art ideas in mind and will be making a post to see what you all want to see if you have any requests or anything. In the meanwhile, I need to give my nails a break!

What do you think of this design? What would you all like to see on the blog in the near future?

Until next time!
