31 Day Challenge: Inspired By A Pattern

Hello lovelies!

Late post tonight but I'm still on track with the 31 Day Challenge!

So, onto the nails!

Today's theme was to be "Inspired by a Pattern" aka my favorite day of the entire challenge!

Here's what I used:

Just like on the "flower" day of the challenge, it was super hard to pick a pattern to paint on my nails because I have so many options on my inspiration board! I knew I wanted something that I could paint on both hands, and I eventually ended up on this pattern

These nails started with three coats of My Vampire Is Buff and a layer of HK Girl. Then using my detail brush and the acrylic paint, I painted on the pattern. I started with the little moon shapes and then went back in to dot in the black. Everything was sealed in with another layer of HK Girl.

What do you guys think of these nails? I think they're different but I like them! I might have stared at my nails all day during my classes again...which I don't even know if that statement has meaning anymore because 95% of the time, I'm staring at my nails....sooooo yeah!


Thanks for reading guys!
