31 Day Challenge! Day 31: Recreate Favorite Manicure

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 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!
