The Totally Doable, I have a life! Challenge: GLADIOLUS

Sad day for me today, my boyfriend had to move back home in order to find work (not many jobs available in Halifax in his line of work) so I'm kinda lonely. I'm spending the day today cleaning/blogging/painting my nails/eating my feelings in order to make myself feel better :P (that also includes trying out a few new polishes that I picked up - gotta love retail therapy)

Aside from all that... today is another day in my instagram nail art challenge, and after googling what the heck a Gladiolus was, I painted this pretty flower...

Gladiolus, aka "Sword Lily" 

I started with a coat of OPI Dulce de Leche on all nails other than the accent. For the middle nail I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow, and using a small nail art brush, painted the flower using: China Glaze Innocence, OPI Dulce de Leche, Cult Nails New Day, Butter London Trout Pout, Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Grass Slipper, and OPI Black Onyx.

This was definitely a tricky challenge day and I'm looking forward to seeing what other nail artists have come up with! :)
