Summer Challenge Day 30: Inspired by a tutorial
This is one of the challenges I’ve been looking forward to! I love tutorials! And especially the ones that state “It’s super easy”. I found a great one on YouTube, and let me show you the result I got out of it first:
And here’s the tutorial I made it after.
Here’s the colours I used. For the base I used two coats of Sephora’s “Summer in Bangkok”. It’s a turquoise/green shimmer polish, that’s got such a great formula. It’s easy to apply and almost opaque in one coat. Here is a pic of two coats, no top coat.
Then I applied a bit of glitter. I used Funky Finger’s “Tinsel Town”, which is a green base with green and holographic glitters. The base is relatively dark, so my guess is that it can be used on its own, and that it would probably take 3 coats to make it opaque. But here’s a pic of that step. One coat of Tinsel Town over the Sephora.
After that I added the stripes, black and white alternately. I used Claire’s “Two way nail art pen & brush” in black and white for that step. I didn’t take a pic after that step – it’s all in the YouTube tutorial after all :D
And then it was time for some dotting. I used Flormar 400, which is a plain white crème, and Flormar NA12, which is a black striper. I used a double sided dotting tool.
I must admit that I’m more than pleased with how this mani turned out. I know that my hand isn’t as steady as in the tutorial, but hey, practice makes perfect, right?
Which colours would be cool to make this pattern with? Like, Turquoise, purple and silver? Suggestions are more than welcome! <3
There are other Danish girls who also did a “inspired by a tutorial” mani today. I’m curious about which tutorials they followed, so why don’t we check their blogs out?
