13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge: Complement and Contrast

Good morning! I have a quick post this morning. I tried to post this last night but my internet went out so it is late, but it's not my fault (this time LOL). I struggled with today's challenge prompt and I'm not very thrilled with how it turned out. But, it's better than not posting, right? They can't all be winners.

Post continued after the jump!

When I chose my base color (OPI Mod About You), I planned on pairing it with navy blue. I've always loved pink and blue together and I thought this combo would be very classy. Then I took a second look at the color wheel and realized the contrasting color to light pink is bright green. I love neon green and neon pink together, but I didn't like neon green with this base so I went with a more turquoise green (Barry M Green Berry).  I did like it a little better after adding the matte top coat, but this one just doesn't do much for me.

You might notice my nails are super short (again). I had a bad break over the weekend. Not while working under the hood of my car, but after I came in from working on my car and bumping  my nail on the bathroom counter. Irony at its finest. 

I should have a gorgeous collection to show you tomorrow and hopefully I'll like Wednesday's challenge mani more!
