Oh, hello again! You guys know I couldn’t miss my 31 Day Challenge post! Can you believe that we’re already almost halfway through the challenge? I wish I could say that I’m ready to tackle the rest of it, but I’m actually all out of prepared manicures again. And, I’m going out of town this weekend so, no nail painting will be happening. Don’t you guys worry though! We’re going to get through this…there just might be some crying and a lot of beer drinking involved, but we can do it! Any who, I have my attempt at delicate nails to share with you guys. So, onto the nails!
Here is what I used:
This is a theme that stumps me every single time I do this challenge. What does delicate nail art even mean? I decided this time that I would *attempt* to go for a delicate, holo look, but the base came off way too strong. Blah haha. At least the pattern is kind of dainty! It was inspired by these coasters from the The Lovely Drawer!
- Start by applying three coats of You Have No Power Over Me.
- Follow that with a layer of Summer Moon.
- Once the base is dry, add on the pattern with blue acrylic paint and a detail brush.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.
So, what do you guys think? I forgot how purple You Have No Power Over Me actually pulls, which was my downfall. This manicure isn’t a total fail, but it wasn’t the soft silvery, holo look I was going for. The nail art turned out a little messy too, but you can’t win them all haha.
Thanks so much for reading guys! Don’t forget to check out the inLinkz below for some more delicate nail art!
