  Today I am sharing my Violet look for day Six of the #31DC2013. I had a hard time deciding what shade of Purple to go with... But once I landed on That's Shore Bright from the China Glaze Sunsational Neons collection, I knew I wanted to do something as cute and playful as the base color. I heart Purple (badum tssss)! More after the jump!

#31DC2013 Day Six: Violet Nails 
 Heart all the nails! For this simple look I started with a base of That's Shore Bright. Once my base was completely dry I started stamping. For the cute heart designs I used Pueen plate Pueen16 and Cheeky Plate CH14. I used Konad Black special polish for my stamping. I top coated with some Seche Vite and called it a day. My thumb was done to match my Ring fingernail. I absolutely LOVE the finished look and I am madly in love with this color by China Glaze. 

China Glaze That's Shore Bright
 This baby is a Pink toned, neon pastel Lilac/Purple. It is an AMAZING shade and it is so insanely flattering. I didn't find the formula on this color to be bad. The reviews for the Sunsational neons have been all over the place. The Two I have tried so far were not problematic. I used Two easy coats of That's Shore Bright for my base. This shade dries a bit satin-matte so a top coat is a must to make it shiny and extra smooth.

 I'm really enjoying my rounded nails! This comes as a surprise to me because for the longest time I thought I could not pull off rounded nails. That, and I had square nails for so long, I didn't know if I would know how to properly round them off.. but I kinda love them. They are actually the longest they have been in a while but I have current desire to make them short just yet. It is really nice having an extra bit of length for the upcoming challenge prompts. I'm curious to see how long I can go before I feel like I want to hack 'em off... *challenge accepted!!* 

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Saturday!!


  1. I actually don't feel different about rounded and squared nails but pointed nails? hell to the no!

  2. I love the doodly look of the stamping :) The rounded nails at this length look perfect!

  3. So cuuuute! Makes me want to give stamping another shot... I especially like your index and pinkie stamps.

  4. Wow this is really lovely!

  5. I think I just found my new favorite color! Those doodle hearts rock - LOVE IT!

  6. I can't stamp to save my life, then again I've not tried. I will live vicariously through your amazing stamping skills! I LOVE this!

  7. Can you post something already? I know you're depressed and all, but come on..

  8. Wow, this color reminds me of that fake (altered) Chanel polish bottle & nail pic floating around on Pinterest several months ago. I thought a color the shade in the pic would've been really nice! I'll have to compare the 2 pics to see if they are similar or if it's just my memory, Lol.
