My participation in this updated challenge has definitely been spotty. I am hoping to participate more regularly in the future, though! Every week there are two prompts. You may choose to do both over the week, only one or a combination. I generally choose one or the other but I may try my hand at a combination!
I hope you like my “three shades of blue” manicure…I thought a “Picasso-Swirl” would work perfectly for this!
I started with 3 coats of the long neglected Urban Outfitters Mystic as my base.
I swirled with a toothpick, Anise Neon Blue, Pop Beauty Pacific Hoot and Essie No Place Like Chrome. I first placed dots of every color on each nail. I allowed the polish drops to dry slightly before I dragged the toothpick back and forth through them. I continued to apply polish in stages until I was happy with the final result.
Hi, my name is Monica and I have RA.

What is RA, please, Monica
RA stands for Rheumatoid Arthritis (another name is Rheumatoid Disease). It is an autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the joints. The immune system gets confused and attacks/destroys the cartilage around the joints. This results in inflammation and chronic pain. However, this a systematic disease so inflammation happens all over the body including other organs. I was diagnosed about 3 1/2 years ago and am still struggling to maintain my symptoms…I actually started this blog to help me vent and come to terms with my diagnosis!
Thank you for asking!
