Ironically enough, I started participating in this challenge before I even planned to... For Day 1 (August 1st) I posted a classic french manicure on my instagram account, as Classy as it gets for me :P
When I saw this challenge I immediately wanted to participate :) primarily because I'm excited to try out a few nail art techniques that I have yet to try, and secondly because it has been ages since I participated in any nail art challenge.
Day 2 (August 4) is IKAT, and a first for Kelsie's Nail Files...
I started with a base of OPI Get Cherried Away. Then painted the IKAT design using a nail art brush and OPI You're so Vain-illa, piCture pOlish Honey Dew, and OPI Black Onyx.
Hope you guys like my design! :) I'm off to google "gladiolus" for the next challenge LOL
