Rescue Beauty Lounge Cool Tones Nail Art Contest entry

Hi friends!
I sure have been busy lately! How about you? This is my second entry (first one posted this morning)  for a competition hosted by one of my favorite blogs, My awesome Beauty. Sophie asked everyone to pick one (or both) from 2 of her designs to re-create. I am doing both, and think this one is definitely my better entry! Check out the competition here:  My Awesome Beauty Nail Art Contest

 Three from the Georgia on my Mind Collection from Rescue Beauty Lounge. Please note: These bottles are from the pre-order. The names of the colors have been slightly altered and shortened since the original pre-order mailing.
 Started with base coat and one coat of Rescue Beauty Lounge Abi and let dry.  Placed my tape and.....
 One coat of Faraway. I also went over the tips of the nails again with Abi on the part of the nail I knew would be showing after the next step.
 I actually really like this look, halfsies. All of the colors in the RBL Georgia on my Mind collection go so well together!
 The final step. I was super careful when placing these strips. I wanted each nail to be exactly the same! Getting the last shade, "Jack" to the cuticle neatly was the hardest step.
 I wanted to find a back ground that would impress my judge ;)  I like the first one...but wasn't satisfied.....
 Can you believe this dress (yes, that's a dress in the back ground) was just sitting in my closet. Could there be a better match? I chose the polishes and did this mani before I looked for a back ground!







I absolutely love how this turned out! Cross your fingers for me pleeeeease! Of course I am hoping to win!! I want those pastels so much it hurts :P

Glad to have you reading!! :)

  12. I saw this on Sophie's blog and I just wanna say: you totally nailed it! So I thought I'd visit your blog :-) Well done! I really like the shape of your nails. Normally I am not that into "edgy" shapes, but you make it work!

    Good luck - even though you are competition ;-)
