We've got internet again! Over the weekend, besides a 13+ hour work-day in the yard, we lost our entire connection due to "static" in the line, whatever that means, but for right now it seems to have been fixed. So I'm a few days behind, but I'm still going to do my best to complete the #31dc2014. I honestly contemplated combining colors for a couple of days but decided to do it one prompt at a time.
Day 5 is blue nails. I pulled out just one drawer before spying a blue that I hadn't used before but I noticed it looked a little low in the bottle. So I opened it up and noticed that it was now thicker than it should be. But that thickness caused a little spark of an idea to go off in my head. I had another blue sitting out that, since purchasing, I've now had on my nails 3 different times and have yet to share it on the blog. Once I get caught up on the challenge, I'll get it's proper post done for that polish.
On to the nails! For today's post, I did a thick coat of China Glaze Capacity to See Beyond on all my nails then added some Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Thinking of Blue in a diagonal color block. Then I took a sewing pin and drug it through both colors while they were still wet, only doing one nail at a time. After everything sat for a few minutes, I added a thick coat of quick dry top coat to smooth things out and seal it in. I'm hoping my nails don't end up stained since it took a couple different tries and after I was done realized that I forgot to put any base coat before this final attempt.

Just because, I took a quick picture of my left hand. One single coat of Thinking of Blue on my ring and pinkie nails, 2 coats of Capacity to See Beyond on the rest. Then I did a single dot on each nail in the opposite color.
