It’s time for a copycat mani. At some point we’re all copycats, aren’t we? I mean, only few of us actually come up with something original, like, for the very first time. Today I’m going to try and copy a mani Kas made back in June. Kas is a blogger I admire a lot – she’s so super talented and has many great and unusual ideas. I like that.
Here’s my copycat mani:
And here’s Kas’ original mani (click here to read the full post)
Mine is obviously not as perfect as hers, but I’m satisfied with it anyway. I did the mani in a different order than Kas too. I started out with painting my nails white – I used a single coat of NailNation 3000’s “White” – my new favourite white crème polish. When that was dry I taped the tips of my nails and painted the blue. I used a textured polish from Sephora’s X-series: Vortex. It’s an amazing shimmery texture! When that was dry I painted the black stripes on the tips. I used Heavy Metal from Manic Panic. I didn’t use striping tape for this step like Kas did – I was afraid I might pull some of the polish right off again.
There is a little bit of the blue that bled through the tape and onto the white. Did you noticed that before I mentioned it?
I ended up topcoating it because I wanted to see what it looked like. I love the final result:
And here are the three polishes and the topcoat I used for my copycat mani.
Who would you have copycat’ed if you were to do this challenge?
I can’t wait to next week, where the challenge is Dark.
