31 Day Challenge: Violet

Hello lovelies!

Quick post for you guys today because I stayed up stupid late for absolutely no reason. Woo, go me!

So, onto the nails!

At least today's nails are cute!

Here's what I used:

Today's nails were inspired by this "Fantasy Forest" design by Michael Miller. Which holy cow, he has so many different designs! I probably could find an inspiration for everyday of this challenge just on his site. And the pattern I painted on my nails is actually fabric which means that it could totally by made into curtains or a pillow, and uh, hi, hello, my birthday is in 2 months (;

Anyways, these nails started with two coats of Zoya Pinta and a layer of HK Girl. Then using the above acrylic paints and my small detail brush, I painted on the different designs. After clean up, everything was sealed in with another layer of HK Girl.

I think these are the first nails of the challenge, that I'm not super stoked about. I feel like some of the elements look a bit wonky, mainly the deer, but I mean oh well. Motivation to try harder next time! 


Thanks for reading guys!
