He Picks My Polish Challenge

52 comments

Hiya guys! It's Thursday already and seriously where did the week go? Not that I'm complaining about work being over, but I'm just surprised. Not as surprised as my husband was when I asked him to participate in the He Picks My Polish Challenge again. This was probably the most involved he has ever been since the first time we did this challenge and it was very funny to watch his thought process. He must of changed his mind a million times and kept changing up the colors... ah yes, welcome to the mind of a polish girl.


What do you guys think? The only thing I wish is that he would of gone with a different color scheme since I do a lot of red and black manis. But I think that's exactly why he chose the colors, he knows they're my favorite to work with.


Here's the materials used to create this look:

  • Base polish: Maybelline Color Show - Wild at Heart from the Street Art Collection
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Rapid Red and OMGhost
  • Pueen Cosmetics Plate #79 from the Buffet Leisure Set
  • Seche Vite Topcoat

The process of watching Austin pick out the polishes was fantastic. The man had a vision and knew exactly what he wanted... he just had a hard time finding it through 5 helmers full of polish. The base - Wild at Heart - is a red and black glitter topper that I ended up layering a bit for a full finish. He also picked out the stamping plate, but kindly let me pick the pattern from the plate. After seeing my double-stamping tweed design, he wanted me to do something similar. I have to give my guy credit, he picked some really good polishes out and I like how it turned out.


I had a lot of fun joining in on this challenge after not doing it for quite some time. Not sure if I will be doing it every month, but I will definitely have to remember to do it again soon. Don't forget to check out the other ladies participating in this challenge with the awesome guys in their lives.
