#31DC2014 - Day 2: Orange Nails

So I covered apples on Day 1, and for Day 2 keeping on with a fruit theme seemed like an obvious choice, so oranges it is.

I grabbed another favorite of mine for this, Kleancolor - Metallic Orange. Doesn't this just look like it's glowing? For my orange slice, I used Wet N' Wild - Sunny Side Up and Love & Beauty - Ivory
See how Metallic Orange just glows in the sun?

Orange you glad I haven't made an orange joke yet? Day 2 is done with, but the rapper in me is sitting here trying to find every word that rhymes with orange.

#31DC2014 - Day 1: Red Nails

It has begun.

So for this first day of the challenge, I decided to paint a red apple on my accent nail. Since September is back to school month, an apple seemed like the perfect match.

I used Salon Perfect - He's With Me, which is one of my favorite polishes. For my apple I used Wet N' Wild - I Red A Good Book, along with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Espresso for the stem and Sinful Colors - Irish Green for the leaf.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and I better stock up if I'm gonna keep this going for another 30 days. ;)

Check out other Day 1 nails below.

The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2014

Hey guys!

So after a lot of back and forth, I've decided to do the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge this year!

For those who don't know, it's pretty much what it says: it's a 31 day nail art challenge where you do different nails everyday following the theme of the day. You can do it any month, but a lot of bloggers do it every September and after years of watching others do it, I decided to jump in too.

These are the prompts for all 31 days, which I got from the lovely Chalkboard Nails. You can check out her post here for all the details on the challenge.

I kind of can't believe I'm doing this haha. But after months of feeling lousy and having lots of nail breaks, I'm excited for the challenge and for all the practice I'll get out of it.

See you September 1st!

Kimono? More Like Kimo-YES!

First off let me say that my friend came up with that title, and I am not responsible for any groaning and/or falling out of chairs that may result. :)

If there's one trend that's really been hot this summer, it's definitely the kimono. From celebs to fashion bloggers, everyone's enamored with the easy breezy boho look and throwing on a kimono is the cherry on top.

I recently went to Fashion Q and picked up my first kimono. If you follow me on Instagram you know I couldn't wait to style it and put something together.

I got the Love crop top from Fashion Q too and I love how the floral pattern almost matches exactly. I paired it with fringe shorts from Bloom and a fringe purse from Target to complete the look.

When I actually wore this out, I decided to wear sheer black tights and black heeled oxfords to add a different kind of edge to it.

I get my pose ideas from Lily Munster. And I love it.

Of course I needed to match the pattern on my nails too, so I did floral accent nails. I mentioned in my last post how much I loved my black half moon stiletto nails so I did them again, although my nails still haven't grown out as much.

The black is (of course!) Wet N' Wild - Black Creme. The roses are a mix of Wet N' Wild - Tickled Pink, Sinful Colors - Bianca, Sinful Colors - Snow Me White, Sinful Colors - Happy Ending, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Espresso.

I can't end this post without a picture of my cousin and I. This was the last time seeing her for the summer so we took a lot of pics.

I hope you're all having a summer filled with making good memories and rockin cute nails.

OOTD: Edgy Florals

Last month my family got together at P.F. Chang's to celebrate my uncle's birthday. It was a really special occasion since we haven't been able to see the whole gang since last Thanksgiving because of various health problems and stuff. So we lived it up haha.

I absolutely adored this outfit that I wore. I usually don't wear long skirts, but this one is so cute and different because of the M-slit and the sheerness. I'm not that much of a flower crown girl either but I combined these red and orange headbands and they were subtle yet still stayed on trend.

The skirt is from Forever 21. The headbands and shoes are from Fashion Q. The pose is clearly inspired by Angelina Jolie.

My cousin and I had to go out and vamp it up a lil :)

On Sundays we stand outside P.F. Chang's mean muggin' !

I wish I had gotten pics of my nails before they chipped. I painted them black with plain half moons and had them cut into a long stiletto shape. I really liked them and I'll probably end up doing them again when my nails grow out long enough.

That's all for now, see you later!

Butterfly Wing Nails

Here's an oldie but goodie from the vault that I never posted. I think I did these probably in April of last year. I went to my cousin's birthday party and did them to match a butterfly print hi-low skirt that I wore. I remember I had JUST broke a nail and had to cut them all down.

I gotta say this is a cute design for short nails. I don't remember all the polishes in this but I do know I used Love & Beauty - Ivory for the base. I think I used this in every set of nail art that I did around this time. I still really love it, it's the perfect not quite white.

Have you ever tried butterfly nails? I think I need to try these again, especially since I just had yet another broken nail!

The Great Polish Giveaway Of 2014!

Exciting news today guys! If you haven't heard, the awesome Nail Polish Canada is hosting one of the biggest and greatest giveaways that I've ever seen.

What makes this different from any other giveaway is the interesting twist that they've added: bloggers nominate their favorite polishes to be prizes and the grand total can add up to 200 polishes.

The polish that I chose to be my nominee is Zoya - Brigitte.

If you're wondering why, well because my name is Brigitte.
It's spelled that way because my dad is French and my mom liked Brigitte Bardot.

But if any of you were kids who had unusual names, you KNOW whenever you saw one of those displays in a store with pencils or keychains or Christmas ornaments with names printed on them, your name wasn't there no matter how hard you looked!

If mine was there, sure enough it was spelled Bridget. FINALLY a company has my name!
(Fun fact: piCture pOlish has a polish named Bridget that is also nominated in the prizes. So if you win, you get not only Brigitte BUT Bridget too!)

>> For full details and to admire all the pretty prizes, check out The Great Polish Giveaway Of 2014 page.
