Hello! It's October! Not only is it the beginning of the best month of the year (Halloween is the best!), it's the last day of the 31 day challenge! I can't believe I did it...so many of us did it! WOO! It was stressful and frustrating at times but I had so much fun! I feel like I grew and definitely learned a lot from this experience. As a beginner nail artist, I have seen so much improvement in my skill and I have learned so many useful techniques! I can't wait to continue growing and continue working on making my blog better. I want to thank Rachel from Polished Criminails for making this all possible. It was such an amazing experience to belong to such a big challenge. I think this challenge is something I will partake in annually, it just seems like a cool thing to do. As for the objective of the last day, recreate your favorite manicure, I was thinking of redoing one of my creations from the challenge but it seemed like a better idea to recreate one of my favorite manicures from someone else who partook in the challenge. It was really hard to choose a favorite manicure, it really was. There were some really talent ladies that did this challenge with me. I went back through my favorite challenge days and finally just decided to choose a great manicure that I have been wanting to try forever. I choose to recreate Polish Groupie's Retro Wallpaper mani. I have seen this nail design around the web and have been dying to try it. I just love the colors Polish Groupie used.
I just love this design! I think the green Polish Groupie used was a better fit for a retro feel. I used essence Lime Up! as my basecoat. I also used my Kiss black and white stripers for the lines and then used Konad stamping polish to create the dots.
What do you guys think?
I still can't believe it! 31 Days of Nail Art! AH! I'm going to be working on a blog page to showcase the challenge. Here's a reminder of all the fun I had in September!
Don't forget I still have one challenge still going on! The Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge still has two posts left! And with October starting, I will probably be doing Halloween themed contests and challenges, so stay tuned.
See you later!
