2012 Challenge "Plaid" and Pink Wednesday

You might have noticed that I took down the "On Wednesday's I Wear Pink" banner. I did this because I was finding it difficult to commit to two different colour-coordinated days. That being said, should I ever swatch or wear pink polish I will aim to post it on Wednesday, but it won't be the end of the world if I don't have a pink mani to post every Wednesday. My apologies to those who really love PW however I just do not wear enough of that polish colour to justify it with a specific day.

That being said, I have combined PW and my 2012 Mani Challenge. I made a tab up above dedicated to this challenge and have adjusted it slightly to my preferences. (Specifically, I took out the dates and listed them under the month so I can post them at my leisure rather than having such a specific time constraint.)

Onto the mani!

 L.A. Colors Nail Lacquer in Flashy Fuschia, 3 coats without topcoat

Flashy Fucshia is the most perfect shimmery hot pink. Seriously. A dream to apply, nice formula, opaque at 3 coats. Bright and beautiful. After the base colour I took my L.A. Colors Art Deco polish stripers in White and Black as well as my Nail Star Two-Way Nail Art Pen in Purple to make a plaid design.

I cringe a little at my "plaid" design. I only posted one photo because I'm very self-conscious of this mani and promptly removed it after snapping a couple shots and running upstairs to show Mr.Polish who said he "liked it". Pfft. Anyway, there it is.

Are you participating in the 2012 mani challenge? I would LOVE to see your 2012 challenge mani's! I will post others who are doing them at the bottom of my challenge posts. Let me know in the comments if you would like to be included!


  1. Don't cringe at the plaid design. I really like it.

  3. Love this! Aww haha! I think the plaid is cute! I wish I saw the 2012 challenge earlier haha. Looks like fun! I think I'll be doing this. Count me in! :D

  4. I've only attempted plaid once and it was a huge flop! I guess we're too critical of our own work because I like this, it's super cute :-)
