New31DC: Day 31 - Recreate a Challenge Mani
Hey hey, beauties! So here we are on the last day of The Crumpet's Nail Tarts' New 31 Day Challenge. I am sooo proud of myself for completing this, without missing any days! For the final day's theme we are recreating another participant's mani from the challenge. I chose to recreate this beautiful cherry blossom mani by my fabulous friend Danielle from Polish. Glitter. Rock & Roll! I am lucky enough to be friends with this lovely lady in real life, she was one of my first blogger friends, and I just love her. When I saw her cherry blossom nails I just fell in love with them. So here is my best recreation!
I used 3 coats of H&M Go Green!, which is a mint green polish with a gold shimmer. The formula on this polish was ok, it was a bit sheer but it was self-leveling so that was good. The shimmer really wasn't very noticeable on the nail though. The branches were done with OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys and a small brush. The flowers are done with OPI Pink of Hearts 2009 and China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic and a dotting tool.
This is such a spring-y mani, and made me look forward to my first spring in Stockholm. There is a park here with tons of cherry blossoms in the spring and I can't wait to go take photos there when they are in bloom!
I hope you have all enjoyed this journey with me for the past month. I will try to keep up with my posting, but I doubt it will be everyday. I do have a special surprise coming up in February though, so get ready for that!
Let's see everyone else's recreation manis!
