10 Day Challenge - Day 1 Pink Nails

Woohoo one more day until Friday! I hope you're having a great week so far. I'm on vacation so everyday this week has been great :)

Today I'm sharing my first manicure as part of a 10 Day Challenge. I'm sure you've seen a lot of challenges floating around the blogoshpere lately. I wanted to participate in the 31 day challenge but with Christmas quickly approaching I'm afraid I won't finish before the year is out. Well the other day I came across a challenge created by Marketta at PinkPolishAddict Blog. Her 10 Day Challenge has some of the same elements of the 31 Day Challenge but it's shorter so I can commit to it knowing I'll finish.

For day 1 I used Zoya Lindsay a pink jelly shimmer. It's very sheer so it's great for layering or a syrup manicure. I used 2 layers of Lindsay and sponged the edges with Milani Hot Metal. Then I topped it off with another layer of Lindsay. For a more sheer look you can use 1 layer instead of 2. To complete the look I stamped with Konad M51 using Konad Violet Purple.

It's much prettier in person. My camera has a difficult time capturing pinks, reds and purples.

And that concludes my first day. The only ladies doing the challenge so far are Jess and Kelly but they are almost complete so you can feel free to join me on this mini challenge :)


  1. I absolutely LOVE this! I love how subtle the ombre effect is, so delicate and pretty! I'm excited to see this 10 day challenge, the 31-day one seemed to overwhelming. I may gather a few of my blogger friends and see if they want to do this 10 day one with me. Thanks for sharing =)

  2. Thanks Jacqui. I wasn't sure it would turn out so great. The sheer-ness of the Zoya and Milani works well together.

  3. It's the first time that I see this Zoya polish swatched, it's really nice! :)

  4. Thanks Cristina. I can't remember how old this one is. It may be discontinued :(

  5. what a nice challenge! 10 days sounds perfectly great I'm so tired of th 31 day challenge :(
    I love ur mani! The shimmers looks cute!

  6. I really like the gradient effect on this - gorgeous!

  7. Thanks ladies :D

    @Anastacia I can bet you are, lol. I'm on day 3 and I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas.

  8. This came out gorgeous! This is the first time I've seen Lindsay, pretty!
