31 Days Challenge Day 5 - Purple

Wow, almost a week already! Time really flies...
Today on the New 31 Days Challenge I have a really nice polish but a bit of a fail nail art...

I started with 2 coats of Essence - Alice Had A Vision Again from their new Breaking Dawn (LE?) set. This is a blackened purple base with tiny purple and iridescent flakies.

I then dotted the tips using China Glaze - Let's Do It In 3D, a dark gray holographic polish from the Kaleidoscope collection. What I tried to achieve is a sort of gradient but apparently I couldn't keep my dotting tool stable enough to create more even dots. Some became too big and look like blobs more then dots... Oh well, you live and you learn, isn't it? All in all I think I am liking this mani, even though I place it in the fail drawer.



 Until tomorrow - have a wonderful Friday and don't forget to check the other participants of the challenge!

That Essence is gorgeous!! That's going on my wish-list! As for the dotting... at first glance I thought it was skulls - perhaps it's just me ;-)
