(S)He Picks my Polish -November Challenge


      Hello everyone and welcome to the November addition of the #hepicksmypolish challenge.  This month we decided to mix things up  a bit a do a she picks version. My idea for this manicure kind of came about accidentally. The other day I posted on my fb page about wearing a lot of blue polish lately and asked for a color suggestion. I got 3 responses and decided to use them for this challenge.

     The color suggestions were green, orange and pink. The easy this to do would be to use the green as the base and make pink and orange flowers. I didn't want to do an easy everyday manicure. Then I remembered a post I read from Anita of intensepolishtherapy about an amazing gradient she did. If you click on the link you can view her post.

     I used Zoya Josie, Jancyn and, Jolene for my colors. I just realised that all 3 start with J as I typed that. That's kind of funny! =)  I should also mention that I used Milani White on the Spot as a base because I really wanted my colors to pop.

     I think my ring finger turned out the best but I'm pretty happy with the entire manicure. Clean up was a huge PITA though. I wish I had been able to do a better job with that but my poor fingers couldn't take any more acetone.

     
     I think I may have lucked out this time with colors that paired so nicely with each other. This is a manicure I can see myself wearing again in the summer months or any time I need a pick me up from those winter blues.

     My daughter wants to pick my polish colors for me next time so I should have another post like this one later in the month. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you'd like to participate you're more than welcome. And don't forget to see what the other ladies did for the challenge this month. Happy Polishing!

    1. You could always do what I did and ask for color suggestions on your page. =) I have a hard time doing the he picks my polish challenge since my boys roll their eyes at the mention of nail polish and the bf isn't much help.

  5. Wow that is a beautiful gradient. You did such a great job keeping the spaces even on all of your nails, I'm so jealous! That is always the hard part for me, followed up by clean up of course.
