Hello lovelies!
Only two more days of the challenge left! I feel like I’m not going to know what to do with myself when this is over haha. 
Anywho, onto the nails!

Can we just take a second to appreciate how awesome blue nail polish is? Because I love these!

Here’s what I used:
I decided for my “inspired by a tutorial” nail art that I would attempt The Nailasaurus‘s nimbus nail art! I’ve actually attempted this look before back in the beginning days of the blog, almost a year ago. If you want to see some scary hand poses and some oily looking cuticles you can check that out here

I definitely recommend reading Sammy’s tutorial because she has pictures showing you how to do this. But I started these with two coats of Blu. When that had dried, I dabbed some of the other polishes onto a piece of paper and started thinning it down with acetone. Using a q-tip and the thinned polish, I dabbed the different colors on my nails. I added the studs on with a little bit of topcoat and then topcoated the whole look with a layer of HK Girl.

I still feel like whenever I do this design, it never looks like the original…and when I say whenever, I mean the two times that I’ve tried it….but I still like how these look! I like the addition of the stud for the contrasting color but I haven’t worn any 3D accessories on my nails in forever and these drove me nuts all day. I couldn’t stop running my fingers over them and I ended up losing two of them by the time my classes were over. They look nice for the pictures but for everyday wear, I’d probably take them off.
Thanks for reading guys!
