The 31 Day Challenge 2014 - Day 9: Man With the Rainbow Gun

by - Tuesday, September 09, 2014

I feel like the first rule of daily challenges should be: thou wilt not fall in love with a design. Because I love this look so much and it's breaking my heart to think about having to take it off for tomorrow's fill. I guess I'll just have to enjoy it while it's here, and document it with lots and lots of pictures! I can always order more decals and re-create it in the future... There! I feel better already thinking about that! :)

So let's look at my fill for Day 9: Rainbow Nails!

I started with two coats of Essie Blanc to get this look, and topped it with one of the jewels of my polish collection: OPI Man With the Golden Gun which is an 18k gold top coat. Already I was in love with this look, but to push it over the top (and to make it fit the 'rainbow' theme for today) I added some rainbow feather water decals. Lovely!

I just love how simple and bright this look is... I debated adding feathers to each nail but I like having them as accent nails. And the vein of gold through the middle of the feather ties it to the top coat wonderfully.

Another day, another challenge fill done! Definitely one of my favourite so far.

Also, it was brought up in one of my blogging groups today that it's a pet peeve for many when bloggers don't respond to comments - I've been terrible at this recently since most of my free time has been taken up putting these posts together, so I apologize. I'm not a daily post kind of girl! That being said please know that I truly appreciate each and every comment left and I do read them all. I'll try to put aside some time this weekend to retroactively respond to some!

Thanks for your patience, and thank you for visiting! xx
