Makeup Savvy 15 Day Nail Challenge Day 2: Pattern

Hi!

Before I show you today's post, Fee posted some extra information about the challenge for those of you who don't have a blog. There are lots of other ways to join in, so check out the post HERE for all the details.

On to Day 2 - Pattern!

 I was going to recreate the Cath Kidston inspired pattern that I did for a previous challenge, but I decided to do something I've never done before instead. I wanted something that resembled a Spirograph design.

I used 3 coats of Nicole by O.P.I 'It's All About the Glam' from the Kardashian collection as a base - it's one of my favourite white polishes, it's so soft. For the circles, I used some of the pens from the Rio Metallics kit and one from eBay.


Here's what I came up with:

Outside, no flash


Inside, flash


Outside, no flash.
Am  I happy with it? Not really. The yellow (non-Rio one) bled like crazy and the blue didn't show up very well on camera! I'm happy with the overall effect but I don't think it's one I'll be doing again.

Are you doing the challenge? Let me know!
