It’s a nice short week thanks to the holiday but that also means today is fake Monday. Let’s do this!
The 31 Day Challenge is usually done in September although you can do it any time of the year. If you want to find out more information you can find everything you need to know as well as the Inlinkz for the prompts here thanks to Cathy from More Nail Polish. Here are the prompts you can look forward to
The prompt today is Inspired by fashion. I often see people doing fashion inspired nails and it blows my mind because it’s so amazing. This time, I thought I’d give it a shot too. Choosing something was difficult of course but my cousin came to play when she sent me this.
This gorgeous dress is what Blake Lively wore to the Met Gala in 2017. How could I not be inspired by it right? Let me show you what I did,
I started with 2 coats of ILNP – Fame. While that was drying I started working on the feathers. I stamped using Lina – Make your mark 02 and Mundo de Unas – Black. I didn’t want the full nail image so I isolated the feathers and used them individually. I used China Glaze – Capacity to see beyond for the lighter blue feathers and China Glaze – Born to rule for the darker blue feathers. Once they were all dry I started layering them, the darker over the lighter. I topcoated and that was that.
I can’t decide if the darker blue was too dark and if there is enough of a contrast. I really liked wearing this though and hopefully you can see it was inspired by the dress. What do you think?
Don’t forget to follow the #31DC2018 on social media if you want to follow along with the daily prompts OR take a peep at the InLinkz below.
