OMD Challenge Day 19 – Lipstick

Hi, all! Straight into it this evening!

OMD Challenge Day 19 – Lipstick

I started with 2 coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. For the gradients, I used Zoya Nana and Zoya Sooki.

For the stamp, I used Bundle Monster plate BM-303. On my middle finger, since I tend to prefer gloss over lipstick, I used Pure Ice Shimmer-Wing Iris. It’s a quite simple look, but it was rather punchy in person.

 

That’s all for now! Thanks for looking!

OMD Challenge Day 18 – Love

Hi, all! Finally back with my next challenge day. I have days 19 and 20 photographed and just about ready to post, but I don’t know how many more of the challenge days I’ll get done before the deadline.

OMD Challenge Day 18 – Love

The whole time I was working on this prompt, I kept singing L-O-V-E (autoplays). Anyway, I started out with two coats of Zoya Ziv for this mani.

I created decals using letters that I found here, which I printed out small enough to put on my nails. I painted the letters using Zoya Isa and the ornamental details around them using Zoya Serenity. I think if I was going to do this again, I would make the letters a little smaller still so they fit even better.

 

That’s all for now! Thanks for looking!

OMD Challenge Day 17 – Shoes

Hi, all! Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday. I just really wasn’t feeling it, ya know? But I’m back with my next challenge day!

OMD Challenge Day 17 - Shoes | Erin's Enamel

OMD Challenge Day 17 – Shoes

These were inspired by a pair of hand-painted ankle boots from Burberry. I started with a base of Zoya Leah. It needed 2 coats for complete opacity.

The blue is China Glaze License and Registration Pls. For the purple, I mixed Zoya Perrie, Mattese Elite Dirty Slut, and a tiny bit of Zoya Genevieve. The peachy color is a mix of Zoya Cole and Avril. The gray is Zoya Genevieve, and the yellow is China Glaze Lemon Fizz, mixed with a tiny bit of Leah to tone it down a bit.

And then I added matte top coat to everything to make it a better match for the boots. :)

I may or may not get a second post up today. We’re moving furniture and boxes, trying to get the pod completely emptied, so I may not have time (or energy) for another mani and post.



That’s all for today! Thanks for looking!

OMD Challenge Day 16 – Fast Food

I have to admit, I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about this prompt. It took me ages to figure out what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. Thankfully, I was pretty pleased with the final product.

I started out with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. The red is Zoya Maura, and the green is Zoya Tilda. From darkest to lightest, the shades of brown are Zoya Louise, Flynn, and Cho.

The yellow is Sinful Colors Pull Over, and I mixed it with a bit of Flynn for the French fries. I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls for the ice cream and the bits for the soda. I used black acrylic paint for the outlines and then topped it all off with matte top coat.

It’s not my favorite thing I’ve ever painted, but it turned out well enough. :)



That’s all for today! Thanks for looking!

OMD Challenge Day 15 – Cats

Good morning! For the Cats prompt, I decided to do nails based on our kittehs’ fur patterns. I just posted a pic of all three on Instagram so you can see their gorgeousness. ;)

OMD Challenge Day 15 – Cats

On my index finger, I used just one coat of Zoya Rowan as the base and dotted on the paw prints in Zoya Genevieve.

My middle finger represents Jupiter, my tortie. She also has a hint of orange tabby stripes under the tortie pattern. I started with a base of two coats of Zoya Jacqueline. I then sponged on China Glaze Desert Sun to make the tabby stripes. I went over the whole thing with Sinful Colors Black on Black and added a bit more Desert Sun where needed.

For Stevie, the orange tabby represented on my ring finger, I started out the same way that I did for Jupiter: 2 coats of Jacqueline and stripes sponged on in Desert Sun. I added a bit more Jacqueline to make the stripes more obvious.

Finally, on my pinky, we have Blue, my sister’s brown and gray tabby. I used one coat of Rowan as my base and sponged on stripes, first using China Glaze Foie Gras then using a mix of Genevieve and Black on Black. I also dabbed on a bit of Rowan here and there.

And then I added matte top coat to the whole shebang. :)

OMD Challenge Day 14 – Fish

For my second post of the day, I have my nails for the Fish prompt, which might literally be the best thing I have EVER put on my nails!

Okay, so as those who know me in real life can attest, I am a huge hockey fan, and the team that was my first true love was the Huntsville Channel Cats, which were a local minor league team. Since the logo was a catfish, I couldn’t resist putting it on my nails!!

OMD Challenge Day 14 – Fish

I printed out the logo and taped a piece of saran wrap over it so I could make a decal. I used the black and white acrylic paint, mixed them for the gray of Finley the Fish, and added Zoya Cecilia for the teal. After trimming the decals to size, I put them over two coats of Zoya Carey.

Seriously, these are my favorite nails ever! I have so many great memories associated with that team, and it makes me smile just to look at that logo.

 

That’s all for today! Thanks for looking!
