31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 21

21 Oct

Oh gosh I feel all out of whack because I’m not at home D: It even feels wrong painting my nails not-at-my-desk. And accordingly, these did not go to plan >_<

Anyway, today is the start of the ‘inspired by…’ part of the challenge, and the first one is ‘inspired by a colour’. Huh? Like what does that even mean? After much thinking and hmming and haaing, I decided to take the NAME of a polish and go with that. One of my favourite polishes-I-always-grab-for-and-always-love is China Glaze’s Electric Beat. I thought about doing something crazy and intense like a glitter lightning bolt with CG Electrify, but then I remembered that I wouldn’t be home. So I went for something simpler.

This is two coats of Electric Beat as base, with stamping using Kleancolor Metallic Sapphire and plate BM-305 for the lightning design. I really like this mani, it’s totally cute 😀 I was a bit annoyed that my trusty top-coat managed to smear the lines a bit, but I think that’s a problem more with the stamping polish than the top coat. But not-so-close-up, these nails look awesomesauce.

I’m just sad about how weird everything feels when I’m not at home to nail it up. Plus the weather today is shocking and therefore so are my photos! My camera throws a fit when I try to macro with indoors lighting.

Anyway, what do ya’ll think? Rockin’ it? Also how would you have interpreted the ‘inspired by a colour’ instructions?
