31 Day Challenge: Recreate Someone Elses Challenge Mani

Thursday 31 January 2013

Well... This is the end! My first ever challenge is over! I have really enjoyed it, been inspired, gained 20 or so followers and gained untold amounts of traffic! So worth doing, I encourage any fellow bloggers out there who haven't taken part in a challenge before to go out there and do it! There are plenty around to get involved with including this challenge at a slower pace, starting tomorrow!

This manicure was an obvious choice for me - Heather at Peace, Love and Polish did the most beautiful design for the colour opposites manicure and as soon as I saw it I knew it would be 'the one' hahaha :) In fact all of her nails are amazing so check her out! This was fairly easy to do and would have been even better had I been able to execute it with my right hand on the left nails! I started with three coats of the yellow and once dry I painted some loose, purple bloom shapes in two of the corners with the brush in the bottle. Next I used the light purple to add the centre of the bloom in the same way. Whilst waiting for that to dry I painted on the leaves, also just using the brush in the bottle. Once it was all dry I added the black details using a nail art pen/brush. Voila! I'm not sure I did Heathers' manicure justice but I was pleased with my own efforts :) beautiful design! Thanks Heather! :)


For this look I used:
  • Barry M - Yellow
  • Barry M - Bright Purple
  • Barry M - Berry Icecream
  • Barry M - Spring Green
  • Models Own Black Nail Art Pen/Brush
