Girly-Girl Challenge - Day Four

Hello dearies
Time is flying y'all. Can you believe it's day four of this challenge already? We're half way through!! Yay!
I'm enjoying seeing what the other ladies I'm doing this with have been coming up with, and I am so glad I chose to do this challenge. :-D

Today, The list says we should: Be Inspired by the Runway - What is your favorite trend this season? Show us your stylish mani. 

This Challenge is also going to be my Entry into the Rebecca Likes Nails Art Contest currently going on.

Anyhoo, this one kind of a hard one for me since I honestly don't follow trends.. Lol...I also wanted something lovely for the contest!
When I think of fashion, style, and trends, I Immediately think of colors and crazy combinations! Lots and Lots of colors.
Since it's spring, we all know colors are everywhere! So I remembered this mani I had seen done by Carol and wanted to try.

I didn't do *exactly* what her mani was, but I still have to cite my source as this wasn't entirely my idea. :-)


I stamped on my ring finger using my Born Pretty Store - Hello Kitty plate. 

 I really truly loved the end result of this, and I'm so happy to be sharing it with you. I'm also really glad my Hello kitty plate got another use today! :-D 



Oh, and finally, check out my messy "station". Lol... Here's pretty much everything I used for this mani.

I used my favorite black - Kleancolor -Black as my base color. I keep saying, it was opaque in ONE coat! Applied like a dream. (No clean up was needed)!
I used Acrylic paints for the dots. The Acrylic paints made the colors pop more! Thanks to Carol for this tip.  
And as you can see in the above picture, I used dotting tool, My BornPrettyStore Hello Kitty stamping plate, Stamper and scraper, Dirty tissue, and another stamping plate to put my colors on.  

Rebecca's Contest did not Prohibit Acrylic paint, so that makes me happy. :-)

So ladies, Do You think this trend will catch on??
Are you planning some colorful mani after seeing this? Lol...
