This weeks Fall into Autumn Challenge is School Spirit. I take that to mean any school you are attending, attended or even your kids' school. I have been out of school for a long time. This year my oldest, 5, started kindergarten, so I am doing his school colors. They are the Knights with the colors of Blue and Red. I have been wanting to try a few different techniques/polishes so this is a combination mani. I went with a red base using Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat from the new metallic line, it's a nice one coater :) I have had the Finger Paints Flakies for a while now and have to even swatched them! So flakies for this mani too. I did 2 coats of Motley over my red base. I let that dry over night. It was getting late and taking too long to dry. I was tired, so I carefully went to bed. Today I got out my striping tape (new for me) and tried a simple design. It didn't take too long to do and then applied a single coat of Sinful Colors Midnight Blue. A nice one coater there too. Next, I took off the striping tape. It isn't as clean and crisp as I had hoped, but I think it's pretty good for my first try. Added a coat of Seche Vite and done :) What do you think?
