Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! I'm excited today because I'm starting a new nail art challenge. You all know that I'm not a girly girl and that I rarely wear pink. So this is a real challenge for me but I like to be challenged, so I'll do my best to deliver some girly manicures. We will be posting the manicures weekly for about 2 months. Here's the schedule and the themes for the Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge.
As you can see in the picture, the theme for today was Think Pink. Now first of all, I don't really have many pinks in my collection. So it was very hard to pick a favorite pink. Finally I decided to use a polish that is very dear to me and that's because it's the first I ever posted about on this blog. My pictures were awful back then and I cringe every time I look at them, but I'm not ashamed. It shows how much I've grown and how much my manicure and my photo skills have evolved. So you can check my original post about S-he Stylezone 155 here. I really did my best to incorporate this in a nail art and here's what I came up with.
The base color is Kallos 54, the only bubblegum pink I own. I actually discovered that this has some tiny silver shimmer in it, which is kinda ironical because I've had this polish since forever. I guess it shows how much I've worn it. After I applied 2 coats of this, I applied some Seche Vite to make it dry faster. I waited for about 30 minutes before sticking some tape in the form of a triangle at the base. I painted the S-he into the triangle and removed the tape before it dried. I finally finished with some pink striping tape and another coat of Seche Vite.

S-he 155 was also my first ever holo polish. The holo effect is very very subtle but you can still see it in the sun photos.
I also like the shine of the striping tape in the sun. I'm really happy with how this manicure turned out, even though I had a lot of trouble with figuring out what to do. I guess thinking pink is very hard for me.
