Mish Mash Challenge - Purple

This is the first challenge I am joining in on and I'm really excited! The ladies who put this lovely challenge together are absolutely amazing! I think its rather managable, one post every week so it seems like the right first challenge to participate in. I actually found out about this challenge yesterday so I quickly whipped something up.

The theme for July 31st is PURPLE. Like I said I found out about this challenge yesterday so I kept it simple and wanted to do something easy. What's easier than stripes? The manicure below is using 6 different shades of purple that I had hidden in my nail polish arsenal.


 *Middle Finger - Left to Right* 
Matteselite - Fucci-licious
Sinful Colors - Sweet Tooth
Essie - Lilacism
Jordana - Purple Punch
Revlon - Bold Sangria
OPI - You're Such A Budapest



I put a matte top coat just so the stripes can be seen a little easier in the photographs. The matte top coat I used for the pictures below is Warpaint Beauty - Mattify from Hot Topic: 






Sorry for the bombardment of pictures, it's just so easy to get good pictures when it's matte!

    1. Thank you! I was a bit afraid of not making them uniform stripes on each nail but if you like it that's all I care about :)

    1. I'd have to agree with you, I enjoy them more with the regular top coat but they are 1000 times easier to photograph when they're matte and a it's a bit easier to see the differences in the shades of purple. I also would like to say, thank you! :3

  15. I agree, stripes are a super easy way to go for beautiful nail art! They're my go-to technique when I feel artsy but I don't feel like being over the top with it! Great choice!
