LDTTWC Day 8, Lets do the Time Warp Again!

Well the challenge is officially over :( I had alot of fun being a part of it. I look forward to more challenges in the future. For our last challenge we are to recreate are favorite mani from another participate. I chose to recreate Lindsay from Neverland Nail Blog Day 6 mani. Day 6 was "They sure don't make em like they used to. She choose to do the Koosh Ball. Check out her mani here.
My base color is China Glaze: I'm with the Lifeguard. I used Zoya: Robyn and Color Club: Insta This, to draw stringy lines. Top coat of Out the Door.
I realy like the colors Lindsay used, which makes her's look way better also. It was fun to wear neon's again also. Thanks Lindsay for creating the challenge as well as the cute mani that inspired me :).

LDTTWC, Day 6: They Sure Dont Make em Like They Used to

 Today's challenge is to recreate a mani that is inspired by a childhood game. One of my favorite games from my childhood is candy land. It was mostly because of the 'candy' part, eventhough you don't get to actually eat candy. It was a fun and brightly colored game for a kid to look at.
My base color is Zoya: Renee. For the gum drop I added some sparkle since it would have sugar on it. The candy symbols were done in random polishes I forgot to write them down :( Top coat of Out the Door.
For everyone who isn't a candyland expert you need to know that the squares with candy symbols on them are pink, and the four symbols I choose to represent is the candy cane, plum, lollipop, and gum drop.
Next week is the last week,  lets see how we are ending the challenge.

LDTTWC, Day 5- We Can Do It!!!

Another week of the time warp challenge! This one is probably the hardest for me, I am not a history buff AT ALL this made it really hard for me to think of influential women. Even though there are SO many women who have made their mark on history I just couldn't think of one. I finally came up with Amelia Earhart, we all know who she is so short and sweet she was the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. 
For my nails I was inspired by her plane, the one she flew across Atlantic Ocean was red, Amelia's nickname for this plane was Red Bus. The model number on the plane was NR-7352 which was located on the wing of the plane. Here is a picture to show what I was going after..
So I decided to do a sky for background, its hard to see the clouds in the blue, but they are there! 
Colors used were Color Club: Take me to Your Chateua, China Glaze: White on White. I  used my Red and Black Nail Art Pen and Stripper for writing.
This is my least favorite of all the challenges so far, but I hope you like my outcome.

LDTTWC Day 3: I Remember When...

Another week of Lets Do the Time Warp Challenge has begun, and today's theme is I Remember When.. either a moment in history that is well know or personal. I had a harder time thinking of what to do for this mani. In the end I came up with the invention of Electricity along with the light bulb. Without electricity there is no telling what our world would be like! Even though I wasn't personally alive during it, I remember learning about it in school.
My base color is China Glaze: Liquid Leather. For the lighting nails I used Color Club: Take me to Your Chateau, Sally Hansen: Lacey Lilac, OPI: Pamplona Purple, and my Nail Art Duo Pen: White to draw lightning. For my light bulb I used nail art brush with Color Club: Most Famous, and NYC: Sidewalkers. Top coat of Out the Door.
If you aren't a huge history buff (like me) the meaning for lighting bolts is because that is how the first electric charge was found, with a kite a key and lighting !My lightning nail turned out so awesome and the little light bulb looks soooo cute :) I am glad I choose to do this event in history for I Remeber When...
Check out what that next challenge is.

LDTTWC Day 1- I Shoulda Been Born in....

Today is my first post in my first ever Nail Challenge!! I am very excited to be doing this challenge, the theme is Lets Do the Time Warp Challenge (LDTTWC). It is sponsored by Nail Polish Canada and thank you Neverland Nail Blog for arranging this challenge. I will post two times a week for four weeks, and each day is a different theme. See picture below to see what is coming up next.
Now onto what I chose for the theme: I shoulda been born in...  You are to choose a year or decade that you wish you coulda lived in. Now actually I love the year I was born in, I dont think I could do with out the technolgy so I decided that it could only get better from this point. This being said I shoulda been born in the FUTURE!
My inspiration for what to do for future nails comes from a movie I enjoyed when younger Zenon Z3, about a girl who lived in space and traveled to earth in the year 2054. I would love the idea of being able to live in space and go back and forth to different planets. This is why I did the galaxy nail, since it seems everday we are trying to learn more about space and someday in the future we will end up being able to travel to and from like Zenon did.
How I created this mani was using a Foil: Silver Dots for my pinky and pointer nail. Glaxy nails basecoat is China Glaze: VIII, the other colors used are Nina Ultra Pro: Solar Flare and Punki Purple, Zoya: Kendal,  and Icing: Glamarous. Top coat of Out the Door. I followed this tutorial for how to create galaxy nails, this was my first attempt.
I am quite happy with how this turned out, creating the galaxy nail was fun. I think my view on the theme will be alot different form everyone else's make sure to check out thier by viewing the pics below.  Hope you like it also!! :)
