31 Day Challenge, day 8: Metallic


Hello everyone! Today I'm showing you what I've made for the metallic challenge. I hadn't done lightning bolts in a while, so I went for those in one of my favorite colors combinations: blue and gold. The muted blue is Orly Sapphire Silk and for the lightning bolts I used H&M Golden Treasure.
Overall the mani is quite dark, but I'm still excited to wear these to a party tonight. That reminds me... I've got to get ready! See you next time! :-)

  8. Hi, nice job. What kind of tape are you using? Your lines are straight and mistake-proof.

  11. i just thought you should know that there is a blogger that is using your posts as her own. this really upsets me. as a nail blogger myself i work hard to buy polish,post on my blog and swatch the polishes i have purchased. seeing someone just take a great post from a blog like yours and then copy and it really rubs me up the wrong way. here is the blog link

    hugs to a fellow blogger Osirisandloki.

  12. I must warn you, someone is stealing your pictures AND copying your text and claiming that it's theirs without giving any credit. So it's clearly not a re-blog.

    This is one post: http://nailscolor365.blogspot.se/2012/09/31-day-challenge-day-8-metallic.html

    (And is a copy of this actual post, both title, text and picture)

    You are not the only one copied, seems like everything on that blog are stolen sadly. Scrangie is also affected for example.

    1. Thank you too, Gelic, for informing me. I just don't get how people doing such sad things can get joy or satisfaction out of copying and pasting other people's work.

  13. I love your bolts! Can you please do a tutorial? The tape placement is completely different from your other bolt manis and for the life of me I can't get it right!

  16. Does changing your nail polish everyday ruin your nails???
    I'm too curious about this.

    1. I've been wearing and changing nail polish almost daily for over three years and I haven't experienced them getting weaker. What might happen is that your cutiticles get dry because of the use of nail polish remover, but moisterizing them with (hand)cream really helps so that's not a huge problem either. The only issue you'll probably have to deal with is that your nails will get yellow-ish, caused by the pigments in nail polish. Using a coat (or two) of basecoat can prevent that, and buffing your nails just every now and then can take away the stains a bit.
