Girly-Girl Nail Art Challenge Day 1

Hello Lacquer Luvers! Today is the first day of the Girly-Girl Nail Art Challenge! This challenge was created by Lindsey of Neverland Nail Blog and was designed to last a month (4 weeks) with 2 challenges per week (Tues & Thurs). I am so excited to do this challenge and join the other bloggers who are participating. Let's get on to my Day 1 nails, shall we?

Today's challenge is Think Pink: wear your favorite pink polish and nail art. For my favorite pink, I chose Zoya Barbie. Barbie can best be described as: "Soft, warm medium baby pink with very subtle hot pink shimmer. An adorable girly shade to accent any outfit."

I began my manicure with a base of Essie Grow Faster. Next I applied 3 coats of Zoya Barbie. The formula and application for Barbie was, as with all Zoya polishes, amazing! Though it was a little sheer, I didn't mind applying the 3 coats that were needed to reach full opacity.

It is no secret that my one of favorite types of nail art is stamping. I chose to use my absolute favorite designs which comes from BornPrettyStore's M72 image plate. I stamped on the design using Konad Special Stamping Polish in black then topped this manicure with Essie's Good To Go top coat.

I really like how this manicure turned out. I love this pink and I love these flowers! I would like to thank Lindsey for the open invitation to join her and the other ladies doing this challenge over the next month. Please go and take a look at what they have in store for today's challenge:
