31 Day Challenge Day 27 - Inspired by Artwork

Hello there!

Sorry I went AWOL on the challenge again, I've just been pressed for time and terribly uninspired with these last challenge prompts. I am not a very arty person. Like at all. I enjoy looking at art and, on occasion, can interpret and analyze a piece of art but I just don't have enough faith in my abilities to attempt to recreate a masterpiece on my nails.

When I saw Kimber's post for her 'Inspired by Artwork', I saw she used a nail artist as inspiration. Suddenly, I was like DUH, nail art is still artwork so I dug from my Inspiration folder and recreated THIS look from Dressed Up Nails. This girl has some seriously amazing nail art and pictures! I don't know how I've never come across her blog before but I'm so happy I did :)

For my interpretation, I started with one coat of black, applied the striping tape and added one coat of butter LONDON Wallis.

I had a really hard time choosing pics for this post because they were all blurry for some reason. I really liked the result though! It's very rare these days to have a mani come out exactly as planned. Now to come up with an idea for 'Inspired by a Flag' so I can catch up to the other ladies and finish the challenge on time...

Remember to check out all the blogs participating!


  1. These are awesome!!! I love the color combo!

  2. This is lovely, you must have more patience with striping tape than me! I finally caught up with the challenge but I think I'm gonna fall behind again (so close to the end!) as I'm totally uninspired by the supernatural prompt!

    1. I'm totally uninspired too! Even worse, I won't have a lot of spare time this week. I'm even naked right now! *GASP*

      Haha you'd be surprised :P. I did this mani while having a Netflix watchathon so I would pause placing the strips while I saw an important part of the show. That way I didn't get too frustrated.

  3. Loving the colour-combo! Very beautiful


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I really cherish each and every piece of feedback I might get.
