New31DC: Day 27 - Inspired by You!
Hey lovelies! Today's challenge theme is do a mani inspired by yourself. I thought this would be an easy theme but I was actually a bit stumped about this one. I attempted to do a purple water marble, at which point I realized that I had one 1-2 purples that actually worked in the water and they didn't go well together so I scrapped that idea. I ended up with a jelly sandwich base, and some bright animal print stamping.
I started off with one coat of Cult Nails Nevermore, and then I layered one coat of Hits Afterglow over top. (The Hits was untried, yay!) Next I did a thin layer of China Glaze Creative Fantasy over that. Can you tell I'm loving that polish? I've been using it so much!
I thought this looked so freaking awesome, Creative Fantasy did some magical things to that glitter!
I love animal print of any kind, but especially in some eye-searingly bright colors. I added the leopard print to my ring finger using OPI You're A Pisa Work and Mash-40 stamping plate. The rest of my fingers got the tiger print, using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety-Split Lime and Mash-38 stamping plate.
For not knowing what to do at first, I'm really happy with how this turned out. I definitely think it represents me well... I love purple, and I love the purple and green combo. I also love glitter, and like I said earlier, animal print. The animal prints I used are also large cat markings, and I'm a major cat lover!
So what would you put in a mani to represent yourself?
