31DC2013: Day 2 Orange

Press Sample Purchased by Me

Morning friends! Here we are in day two of the 31 Day Challenge 2013 styles and the theme is Orange! I am not usually a huge fan of orange on my nails so coming up with this design took me a bit longer than usual, but I am really loving the final result!



Basically I pulled every orange I had out of my helmer and then just started playing around with them until I had something that I liked. I started off with China Glaze Sun of a Peach from this years Summer Collection. Then using my medium length striping brush I just started striping random oranges on in no particular pattern to get a striped look. The oranges I used were, Pure Ice Can't Stop, China Glaze Orange You Hot? and Revlon Sorbet. At this point most of the finishes were similar and I wasn't loving the mix of orange shades.



Luckily I saw Hard Candy Pinch of Spice which is a fabulous glassfleck giving me the different dimensions I was craving! Then I added the flowers using black and white creme and my cut down brush. I put three black dots in the middle of the flower and then added a few strokes of Pinch of Spice just to give it a little extra pizzaz!



This was one of those manicures that just happens out of nowhere! Do you ever have manicures like that? Are you a fan of this orange look?

Make sure you head over to The Lacquerologist to see what Emily has come up with!
