33 Day Challenge Day 26: Something From Pinterest


I saw this "fall mosaic" mani on Pinterest and fell in love! It was done by Whitney from Dressed Up Nails. Her blog is just awesome. I am amazed by her nail art! Sadly, the most recent post is from June. I really hope she comes back and gives us more!


I loved this mani so much I wore it for two whole days! I got a lot of compliments on it too. (Making an effort to talk with your hands more helps people notice your nails.)


And now for something totally unrelated..
So I got my (expired) driver's license renewed today! Woot! Now I don't have to worry about it again for ten years, I think. All the employees at the DMV were super nice and helpful. When did that happen? Not that I was disappointed that I didn't deal with a Selma or Patty. It just felt a little Twilight Zone-ish.
The lady who processed my application asked me how my birthday was, and I told her about my party. She even complimented my hair. I remarked that we had the same hair color (I was going to say something about hers, but she beat me to it) and she said yes, we have same birthday too! It was a special moment.



I really liked it from far away too.


What I used:
Ulta Salon Formula High Roller- base color
A whole lot of other colors- just ask me if you'd like to know about them!
Seche Vite top coat

What do you think? I wish I had the polish that Whitney used (China Glaze I'm Not Lion), but I think mine turned out pretty good!

    1. Isn't always great when you're expecting the worst and it turns out to be good?

  2. This is stellar! Love that you showed us a full hand shot so I get an idea of how this would look from a distance - but that said don't want to mislead you - love the tight in shots - that's what we need to really look at the colors and technique. I'm going to try my version of this on the upcoming weekend. I can see doing this as a couple of accent nails too with the other nails in a softer gold or a nude even - and I can see doing this in holiday colors next month

    1. I can't believe I admitted it, but it's true! It's like getting a cute new hair cut and no one says anything. You have to swish it around a little. :)
