New 31DC: Day 16 - Color Opposites

Hi girls!

Holy crap am I sore today.  That's what I get for not working out for ions!!  Even Advil is not touching that...  gah!

Anyways, enough with complaining!  Today's challenge calls for color opposites.  I looked at the color wheel and the only opposite colors that appealed to me were a combo of yellow and purple.  Check out below what I used to achieve this!

I started out with 2 patchy but self leveling coats of Finger Paints "Lemon Sour" (doesn't that sound like a drink???), a pale yellow creme.
My accent finger took 1 perfect coat of a-England "Elaine", a dark purple creme.

You know I wouldn't leave it ungarnished so here it is, stamped with "Elaine" (so awesome for stamping!!) and using plate RA-106.  I don't really have a good yellow stamping polish so I used yellow rhinestones instead on my ring finger.  I think I like this look better anyway!! 

Lemon Sour is part of Finger Paints Gumdrops and Lollipops collection released at spring of 2012.
Elaine is part of a-England Mythicals collection released last year as well.

My hubs said that my nails look 'Italian'.  I can totally see why with the grape design!!  I actually got a rare nod from him!  wohoo!!! LOL
I hope you like them too!!!  Check out what the other ladies came up with for today's challenge!!


  1. Wow what a gorgeous combo. I love the mixture of stamping and rhinestones :). Great to know that a-England is good for stamping xx

  2. Great combo! Elaine is a polish that I actually haven't seen before.

    1. Thanks Helena!! I"m not quite even sure why I got it but now that I have it and tried it, I quite like it!

  3. Elaine looks very different polished or stamped! Color opposites is a tough subject but you managed very well! :D

    1. Thanks Mati!!! It was very tough, I didn't want it to look gawdy!

  4. Wow, that is such a pretty mani. Love it. Kisses.

  5. I love Elaine so much! Haven't tried it for stamping yet but I will. And I love the combo of yellow and purple a lot!
    Btw, I finally ordered some rhinestones from Ebay. I got all sorts of shapes and colors (round, squares, triangles and so on). I just have to wait for them to show up in a few weeks.

  6. Oh thank God it’s Thursday-almost Friday too! You win for best nail art!

    P.S. Did you check out TEEN WEEK yet?

  7. Pretty! I wish I could be this creative with my nails.

  8. I don't really know why this mani of yours makes me wanna sing - but it does.
    I LOVE it so much!! I love this color combo, i love your stamping - something in those grapes make them look 3D. Maybe it's just cause they are so near the stones but I am so going to try that too soon!

    And try to avoid Advil. It ruins the liver :-(
    And stop whining. Run over here and let's have cake party!
