Day 25! This pattern is inspired by one of my shirts, shown below. This design is a simple recreation of the stripes.
Starting with two coats of Zoya Blu, I added a top coat. I then used Sinful Colors Let’s Meet to free hand the yellow section at the top of my third and fourth nails. Next I put on striping tape, making wide stripes. So I didn’t have an exact color to match the darker blue stripes, so I mixed two colors, Zoya Sia and Sinful Colors Sail La Vie, then dipped a cosmetic sponge into the mix, applying it onto the nail.
I like how the wide stripes turned out on the nails without the yellow block, but looking back I think I should make the stripes more narrow next time. Six more prompts in the challenge and I’ll be done!
I’m back with the 31 day challenge, hoping to finish it ASAP. This mani is inspired by The Little Mermaid, one of my favorite childhood movies. It’s a subtle take on Ariel’s fin, bra, and hair, as the three colors have the potential to easily clash. So I decided to take a more subtle approach and use the colors as a french tip.
Using Sephora’s Formula X Astronomical, I painted on two coats. Next I used Zoya Purity to freehand a white tip in order to make the colors really pop. I then free-handed the vibrant colors (Zoya Livingston, Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, Sinful Colors Rise & Shine) over top the white tip.
I hope you liked this manicure, the next prompt is ‘Inspired by a Book.’
Back to the challenge! At least for this post. I have some nail stickers that I am currently wearing. So the song behind this mani is Blood by My Chemical Romance. It’s a great song, one of my favorites from MCR. So, of course, I’ve got blood on my thumb and fourth finger, and a cool red gradient-splash with a white accent on the others. The video is set in a locker room, which is why I have the white square accents, kinda depicting the locker latches.
This was really the only picture I liked, so it’s hard to see the rest of the design, but I took this off pretty fast. I used Sinful Colors Black on Black, red acrylic paint, and A Kiss white striper.
I took a short break from the 31 Day Challenge to paint my nails for my school’s Homecoming dance. So I made these to match my dress, which is cream colored. But then Hoco was canceled because the state where I live called a state of emergency because of Hurricane Joaquin. So these are my not-Hoco nails now. Anyway, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black, and using a small brush, I painted on stripes of Zoya Ziv. This was not my idea or design. I have seen this design multiple times and decided to copy it.
So this is day is a kind of fail. I attempted to water marble and was saved by only the color I had chosen. It looks okay, but it isn’t really a water marble. I will definitely be trying this again, during or after the challenge is over. This picture is not quite correct, my camera gives the purple I used a blue tone. I used Zoya Belinda and Ibiza, as well as Sinful Colors Snow Me White as a base for my water marble. Sorry I have only been able to post around once a week, school and sports are very demanding.
