Challenge Day 1: Rainbow

I hope everyone had a fun Halloween! I had a great time Trick-or-Treating with A & B, and there is definitely too much candy in this house now. I think I may have to "help" A out by eating some *cough*most*cough* of it. Too much candy is un-healthy, and we definitely don't want that, do we? The things we do for our kids, right ;) I am so excited that Day One of the November 10-day Challenge is here! How fun!

The theme for Day 1 is Rainbow.
I know a lot of people think stripes or blocks of color for rainbow, and I wanted to be different, so I went with polka dots!

Are you ready for it?

What's that you ask? Why, yes, I DID hand-place each of those dots! I had so much fun with this one, I think this may be my favorite manicure I've ever done.

The base for this is China Glaze White on White, the rainbow colors are Nicole by OPI Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi, Zoya Arizona, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, Ulta Limelight, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Deep Purple, all topped with Seche Vite! I started with yellow in the middle of each nail and worked my way out, and I decided to flip the rainbow pattern on my accent finger to keep things interesting :)

Can't wait to see what the other lovely ladies in the challenge have come up with! Follow the links down below to see their entries as well :)

Next challenge: Polka dots! Stay tuned!



  1. Haha! I did almost the exact same thing! Your's turned out so much better though. :)

  2. Kara, this is so pretty! This is the same as what I did when I participated in the 31 Day Challenge in the spring. I really like the white base colour as it adds some extra "pop" to the colours :D
