November Nail Art Challenge – November 7: Pattern

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had good weeks so far, only 2 days left until the weekend! Tonight I have volunteer orientation for the humane society (I can’t wait to finish all the training so I can walk dogs when I want!) Tomorrow, I’m volunteering at a bake sale for one of my honor societies (Alpha Zeta). This weekend is the homecoming game against UCLA. Saturday is going to be a busy day (practice from 8 – 10; call time for the homecoming parade is 3:45, and then we’re busy doing stuff until the game starts at 8pm).

Today is supposed to be maroon, but I’m pretty sure that I don’t own any maroon polishes (and I didn’t feel like buying one specifically for today because I don’t really like the color). So instead, I’m doing a pattern (which is supposed to be on “November 31st,” but that date doesn’t exist, so I modified the challenge haha). I started with a coat of Zoya – Anchor base coat. For my thumb, middle, and pinky nails, I applied two coats of Zoya Pixie Dust – Chyna and on my pointer and ring nails, I applied two coats of Zoya Pixie Dust – Liberty. I used these colors because homecoming is this weekend and my school colors are red and blue. Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend.

November Nail Art Challenge – November 4: Fox

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good, I had some friends over on Friday night, and then I relaxed for the rest of the weekend. I have band practice today after a week off (I liked the time off, but I had too much free time and I missed seeing my friends). My football team is bowl eligible as of Saturday, so hopefully we do well the rest of the season so we get to go to a bowl game. There is a football game every Saturday for the rest of this month (this weekend is homecoming against UCLA, my parents are coming down for the game on the 23rd against Oregon, and the game on the 30th is against ASU at ASU). I have a couple papers due this month, as well as some more intensive homework assignments, so while I’ll try to post as often as I can, school has to come first 🙂 The papers and homework assignments may or may not affect blogging, but just a head’s up if I disappear for a while.

Today’s theme is  fox. My nails for this post were (loosely) inspired by this post by Gelic’ Nail Art. I started with two coats of Zoya – Anchor base coat. For my base color I used two coats of Zoya  – Sarah. For the fox and paw prints I used black, white, and orange acrylic paint. I topped my nails off with two coats of INM – Out the Door top coat. Have a great day!

November Nail Art Challenge – November 1: Movember

Hey everyone! Opps, I kind of took a week off on accident haha. Oh well, it was for a good reason, I had 3 tests I needed to study for this week, luckily I don’t have any more tests for a while. I have a little bit of catching up to do since I was gone for almost a week. Saturday was band day and it was amazing. The night performance went so well, I love the Pride of Arizona and I’m so sad that this year is my last, the past 4 years have gone by so fast. Here’s a video from the night performance of The Beatles Strike Back. I’m so incredibly proud of everyone in the Pride for working so hard this season so far. In the past week I’ve also gotten an internship for next semester (my last semester of my undergraduate career)! I’m going to be an tutor with an organization that works with children in Child Protective Services. I’m really excited to start! This afternoon I’m going to go to a volunteer orientation at the Humane Society of Souther Arizona to start the process of becoming a dog walker. I volunteer at the Sacramento SPCA back home, but I will finally have the time to volunteer here (plus I miss my dogs and since I don’t have the time or money to have my own dog in Tucson, I’ll get my dog fix walking shelter dogs).  I think that’s all that’s happened in the past week haha. This month I’m going to be doing the November nail art challenge (hopefully I’ll be able to finish all the days this time – although the ones around Thanksgiving may or may not happen because I’ll be going to a friend’s house). This challenge was created by Instgram user @californails, here is the list of themes for the month.

November Nail Art Challenge List

Today’s theme is Movember. Movember is “an official global charity…[whose] vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.” For this theme I started with a coat of OPI – Matte Nail Envy. The awareness ribbon color for prostate and testicular cancer is light blue so I painted all my fingers (except my ring finger) with two coats of China Glaze – For Audrey. I then used black acrylic paint to paint mustaches and beards on my nails. For my ring finger, I pained two coats of China Glaze – White on White and I used light blue acrylic paint (a mix of blue and white acrylic paints) to create a ribbon. I topped it off with a coat of INM – Out the Door top coat. Thanks for reading, I’ll be back on Monday with fox nails. Have a great weekend!
