30 Days of Colour Challenge: Calm

Sunday, 22 January 2017


Today is one of those days where I feel like I am chasing my tail and going around in circles.  Ahh!  Hopefully I can get everything I need to get done.  All that being said I am going to make today's post a quick one.

Today's theme for the 30 Days Of Colour Challenge is Calm.  This theme really could go any which way but I thought I would go for a nice pastel colour and a simple design.  I originally was going to use China Glaze's Keep Calm, Paint On but switched to Re-fresh Mint.  They are quite similar colours, except Re-fresh Mint is a creme polish.  Fun fact: Re-fresh Mint was the first China Glaze polish that I ever purchased and it was the polish that really pushed me away from my "buy only OPI polishes".  It's great to revisit this polish.  Anyway, I decided to stamp this really pretty lace image from Uberchic Love & Marriage 03 stamping plate (I will have swatches and a review of this plate for you guys next week).






I think that the mint is such an unexpected colour for a lace mani.  Or maybe it's not unexpected at all, except to me.  I usually go for pinks, nudes or even reds for lace.  No idea why.  Right, now I must get moving.  I hope you all have a great day!
