52 week challenge - week 20 - Bow Mani

This week's theme for the 52 week challenge is a Bow manicure. I've always liked how bow manicures look on other bloggers but couldn't really figure out a way to make them look like actual bows. Of course, I turned to Google to search for a "how-to"and came across Liquid Jelly's tutorial and found her tutorial rather easy to follow along, especially for me.

I decided to use a base color that was neutral and went with Moonlight from 10. It's a nice taupey khaki that applies a little streaky with the first coat but evens out after 2.
Brand: 10 Professional Nail Lacquer
Color Name/Number: Moonlight/458
Finish: creme
Number of Coats: 2
Top Coat: no
Then I used Milani Wild Violet for the bows. I did the dots with Color Club Rad nomad for the dots in the center of each bow. Then I added China Glaze Prism for a little more pizazz.

This challenge was created by I'm Simply Complex and I found out about it from I'm Still Thinking.
