November Nail Art Challenge Day 8

Good morning ladies!  Thank God it’s my last day of work for the week!  I need to be able to sleep in tomorrow, haha!
So I know that most of my US readers are going to be stuffing their faces with turkey dinner, and believe me, I wish I was there to join you!  I love turkey dinner, it’s my favourite meal right behind a big feed of spaghetti!  However, the radio stations around here are starting to play Christmas music, so today I have started to wear my Christmas earrings!  I love wearing Christmas earrings, and if I could get away with it without looking like a complete fool, I would wear them year-round ;D
Today I have for you my nails for Day 8 of the November Nail Art Challenge… can you believe it’s almost over 😥  This month has flown, I can’t believe it’s almost December, almost the end of the year!

Day 8 is Gradient Nails.  I know a lot of girls have trouble with this one, but I believe that practice makes perfect (well as close to perfect as humanly possible 😉 ) so the more often we do it, the better we’re going to be at it!  Heck, I have problems with it, but I just embrace it 😀  Each time I do a gradient I get better at it 😀  Gradients take a lot of trial and error and patience 🙂

I’m pretty darned proud of this gradient 😀  For this I used OPI Fiercely Fiona for my base colour, from the Shrek Collection.  Then, with my trusty kitchen sponge (the yellow ones with the green scrubby on the back), I sponged on OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, also from the Shrek Collection 🙂  I think this turned out pretty awesome!  *pats own back*  Now, although Fiercely Fiona is a diarrhea/pea soup green, with some nail art (like gradients or stamping) it doesn’t look so bad.  It would actually make for a really good slime colour for Hallowe’en nail art 🙂
The Shrek Collection is kinda tricky to find, and it’s not normally cheap if you do find it.  So if you happen upon any of the collection for a good/regular OPI price, snag it if you want it! 😀  I got these in a mini set from Tara from Kelara Lacquers (blog sale).

  1. Thanks Ashesela!! 🙂 I do love the Shrek movies, but I have to say that my favourite is the original – my opinion is they could have left it at that 🙂 I just love how witty Shrek and Donkey are together! I actually quote the movie often 😉

  2. There is 🙂 I didn't know about it until I went to get my nails done at my manicurist's last year and I used Rumple's Wiggin', without knowing it was part of a Shrek collection. I picked it for the colour 🙂
