Chalkboard Nails Nail Art Contest; My Entry + 10 Day Challenge Day 7:Favorite Freehand Nail Art Design

Hello Ladies!

I have decided to enter a nail art contest. I have never done this before so I am not getting my hopes up. I also decided to combine this with my 10 Day Challenge, so this is Favorite Freehand Nail Art Design.

Chalkboard Nails is hosting a nail art contest featuring warm and cool colors. Here is the link to the contest if you would like to enter. The rules are simple:

  • You must choose either warm colors (red, orange, yellow, pink) or cool colors (green, blue, purple, teal). Black and white are freebies. You do not have to use all of the colors in the color temperature you choose.
  • You must do these designs on your own nails (no nail wheels, please).
  • Your design must be new.
  • Stamping, decals, wraps, and stickers are not allowed. 
  • Acrylic paint is not allowed

  • The winner gets to choose 3 sets of polish from The New Black

    I decided to go with Warm colors.

    Let's go through the nails, shall we?

    I did my very first water marble for my pointer finger. It took me about 8 tries with the water and paint just to get the drips to do what they were supposed to. But I was completely impressed when I was done. 
    -Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
    -Ulta Sun Of A Gun
    -Nicole by OPI Kourt Is Red-Y For A Pedi
    -Sally Hansen Wild Life
    -China Glaze Shocking Pink (Neon)
    -layered over Sinful Colors Snow Me White

    This one was fun. The night before, I painted a bunch of colors onto a sheet of plastic wrap and let them dry. Then I peeled them off, cut them into shapes and applied them to my nail and topped with Seche Vite.

    -China Glaze Shocking Pink (Neon) (right triangle)
    -OPI You Rock-Apulco Red! (top triangle)
    -Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow (circle)
    -Ulta Sun Of A Gun (square)

    Flames for this one! I used my small striping brush and dipped it in the polish and striped upwards quickly.

    -OPI Big Apple Red
    -Ulta Sun Of A Gun
    -Sally Hansen Sun Kissed

    And a swirl nail to finish off the look. This is done by putting three thick stripes of color across the nail and using your marbling needle or a toothpick to swirl the colors.
