PCFC March Challenges

Here are more manis for the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge. I am slacking. Story of my life huh.

This is my Spring gradient for March 10th. I used Nicole by OPI Paparazzi Don't Preach as the peach base. Then NOPI One Big Happy Fame-ily as the purple in the middle. Then the tip is Barry M Mint Green. I did sponging of the second and third colors on to make it look like a fade effect.

I like the shimmer that the lavender has in it. It was just right for this I think.

Next up is a VERY colorful Pastel skittle for the March 8th challenge.
In case you can't see the bottle labels, I used: NOPI Enchantress (pink), CG Re-Fresh Mint (green), NOPI One Big Happy Fame-ily (purple), Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint (blue), and Ulta Peach Parfait (peach). Then topped with Sally Hansen's Glass Slipper.

I loved the effect that Glass Slipper had on top of each of the different colors.

One of my favorites of the challenge so far!

Next up, I combined the two flower challenges that were close together. From March 3rd and 6th. I put my tulips and daffodils on the same mani. I am not great at drawing but these flowers weren't too difficult and I think the effect came thru.

Spoiled I Only Eat Salads as the base color. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow and Sun Kissed for the flowers. Essie Ole Caliente for the tulip. And Ulta Limelight for the stems.

Hope you enjoyed these three. And I would love your feedback on whether you like that I am adding the photos of the polishes I used. Do you like the bottle shot and the label pics too?

I am headed to a scrapbooking retreat this weekend so I will post more challenge manis when I return! Happy Spring!
