Day 6 - Forever Mani

6:00:00 PM

This is my last post of the SNAAARKM Challenge.  I know that the last day is supposed to be water marbling, but I can't do it.  I attempted it, and failed, and on Saturday I will post a rant post about how much I hate water marbling.

Anywhoo, here are the links to the last 5 days....



Today I bring you the forever manicure.  This is the manicure that I would wear the rest of my life if I had to. Planning wise, this was the hardest day for me to come up with.  What in the world would I want to spend the rest of my life wearing?!?!

As we all know, I love nail art, and I rarely do anything simple on my nails.  I figured if I was going to be forced to wear something the rest of my life, I needed to have something on it to make it pop.  Something simple but with a twist.  Here's what I came up with




Colors Used:

  • Funky Fingers - Queen Cupcake
  • Sinful Colors - Zeus
  • Essie - Shine of the Times
I wanted my Manicure to have purple in it since this is one of my all time favorite colors.  When I purchased Zeus, I wasn't sure how I felt about the polish.  After painting on the base for my Dot Flowers, I fell in love! It is this gorgeous grey purple with a subtle pink shimmer.  It is a polish you must purchase and try for yourself at least once.  If you hate it, swap it, but I can guarantee you will love it as well.

To match the pink shimmer in Zeus, I grabbed Queen Cupcake.  This polish is pretty in it's own way as well.  I'm not one typically for light pastel pinks.  I love dark or hot pinks...you know colors that stand out and scream HELLO I'M ON YOUR NAILS!  This pink has a pretty subtle gold shimmer in it which to me, makes it perfect.  I do not think I would like this polish if it was a flat.  It matches perfectly with the shimmer in Zeus that I had to use it.  Since this is the forever manicure, I figured that I should use my lighter, more subtle colors that would be workplace appropriate. 

Once painted on, I decided I needed to do something more, and I remembered a manicure I did a long time ago.  The Simple Dots were a tiny way to add some umph to an otherwise boring manicure.  This was the something more I needed to forever have on my nails.  Also, since I'm obsessed with Shine of the Times, I threw on a coat of that.  I think though, if I were going to wear this forever, I'd skip the Shine of the Times and just let the natural colors of the polishes stand out.

All together I loved it.  It also taught me that while I love nail art, simple nails can be just as fun and cute.

What did the other SNAAARKM girls pick to forever wear on their nails!?!?

    1. I can't be simple! No matter what, I just can't be! While my short lil nubs grow out, I'm doing simple manicures (minus the memorial day one) and it's driving me insane.
