Extra Relaxed 31 Day Challenge - Day 16 - Tribal Print

Day 16 (week 16) of the ER31DC - Tribal Print. I have NEVER done a tribal print manicure, this is a first. I did not have the patience to do all my nails so choose two accent nails instead.  This is what I came up with.

My right hand, does not get shown often, the index finger went a bit wrong (this was the first design I did!).
Items Used:
OPI Nail Envy
Seche Vite top Coat
Sally Hansen - Ion - Beige base for print nails
Nanacoco - Love me Tenderly - Peach
Nanacoco - Mediterranean - Green
Black Acrylic Paint

Extra Relaxed 31 Day Challenge - Day 15 - Delicate Print

Day 15 (week 15) of the ER31DC - Delicate Print. This is a week late in posting, been real busy with work and home life.  Print is so delicate it is hard to see.  But I used BM312 for this print.
Items Used:
OPI Nail Envy
Seche Vite top coat
Sally Hansen - Green Tea - turquoise
LA Girl Flare - White out (for the image)

Watercolour Effect Nails

I did this manicure a few weeks ago and have only just got round to posting it.

I thought I would try the watercolour effect nails.  I got the initial idea from these nails from beautygeeks. I wanted mine to be muted and paler, so I used fewer colours for my effect.  However, I loved and hated the outcome.  I didn't quite do it right, the darker pink should have been applied all over I think, and I am sure it would been a better effect.  Hey ho though, learn from mistakes, I now know what to do next time.
Items used:
OPI Nail Envy
NYC top coat
OPI - It's Toe-Tally Summer! - Vivid Pink
OPI - Rumple's Wiggin' - Lilac
Sally Hansen - Buttercup - Yellow
Nails Inc - Phillimore Gardens - Pale Pink
