Today I have Zoya Sunshine. I used two coats for perfect coverage. I tend to use thinner coats though so you might just need one.

Today's challenge theme in one of my FB groups is Disney Princesses. I thought about doing Ariel since she's my favorite princess, but I've seen a lot of Ariel manis. Instead, I chose to recreate a mani from Polish Art Addiction.
I used Fresh Paint Alex's Lemonade (it smells vaguely like lemonade plus the funds go towards a children's cancer charity) for the tip. I added a gold accent using Barry M Gold Foil. Finally I stamped on a white rose (I thought it would look better than a red one) using Konad White Stamping Polish and Bundle Monster BM14.

For today's mani, I used a base of Zoya Pepper. It's almost a one coater, but I used 2 to make sure. On my accent nails, I painted a base of Barry M Gold Foil and topped it with China Glaze Blonde Bombshell. I stamped using Barry M Gold Foil and Bundle Monster BM315.

PI had my mom pick this up for me at 5 Below since they're aren't any of those stores in Wisconsin. Funky Fingers Partly Cloudy is a color changing polish that goes from teal to grey. I never did find any sun when I wore this so I don't have any shots of the color change for you. Still, I love the black skittle I came up with.

Rachel of Glam Polish makes beautiful polishes! I got my hands on some and will be featuring them here over the next few days.
Today's polish is Glam Polish Vegas Baby! I layered it over Wet n Wild French White Creme and did an accent using the splatter technique on the other nails.

I was feeling the need to do some intense nail art. Luckily when I showed my husband the theme, he was on board and watches the baby while I art-ed it up.
Here are the results!

I did this mani using Cosmo Girl Wild Thing (pink), Sinful Colors Dream On (purple), and Sinful Colors Why Not (blue). The neon glitter topper is Hit Polish Not So Plain Jane (she makes amazing glitter toppers; check her out!!!).

I joined a new nail group called Nail Polish Challenge. There are new themes every Monday and Thursday. It's super laid back, and there's no pressure to complete all the challenges. Plus if you don't change your polish every day (there's no way I'd have time for this!), it gives you a bit of time between each challenge day.
Today's challenge is shades of blue.
I used Hit Polish Superman as the base. The accent nail was done with L'Oreal Notting Hill Blues, A-England Tristam, and Zoya Liberty.

I know this has been done before, but I just had to do my own beach nails with Zoya Godiva.
Crab is done mostly with Zoya Sookie. Starfish is Sinful Colors Orange Cream. It's hard to see but I did footprints on the ring finger and a heart with A + J in the middle on the pinkie finger. I did those using Essie Brooch The Subject.

Base coat: Cosmo Girl Wild Thing (pink) and Essie Brooch the Subject
Leopard print was free handed using Wet n Wild Black Creme
I stamped on the zebra print with Konad Black and went over some parts that didn't fully stamp.
