Well, here we are completing the very last challenge so I just want to thank Nicole for inviting me to participate in this challenge when it started–30 years ago. I Have to admit that in the beginning, I hated it because I was struggling so much trying to figure out what to do, but now I am soooo happy that I participated because I think I gained some confidence along the way. A big thank you to all of you who stopped and commented on our manicures because it made the whole process even more fun!
The day that we were supposed to create a manicure inspired by a video game, I got so frustrated with my attempts that I ended up not posting anything. I was completely in love with Nicole’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle nails so I told myself that I would use that as my inspiration for today’s final nails. Let’s look at my final mani for the challenge:
Read below to see how I created this mani.
I started out with 2 coats of China Glaze White Out because I work better when I have a completely white canvas. Additionally, the white makes other colors seem brighter. I used a mixture of China Glaze Westside Warrior and Sunshine Pop for their green skin.
I then used black polish to do the outline of the characters with a tiny dotting tool and a thin stripping brush. With those same tools, I filled in some of the details like their colored bandanas and eyes.
Here are some final pics of my mani.
To remind you, these are Nicole’s TMNT nails. I am so glad she did this because it served as such great inspiration!
I don’t know about you, but I can still remember watching TMNT every morning before going to school. I would become so entranced in the cartoon that it would take me like 20 minutes just to get dressed. Of course my mom was yelling at me the whole time because I was late for school, but I didn’t care because I loved my morning cartoons.
Thank you so much for seeing us through this challenge. While I’m not itching to do another 31 day challenge, I will definitely continue to experiment with nail art. Now that I know I can do it, I’m going to have to invest in some awesome nail art brushes. Don’t forget to check out Nicole’s final mani over at Polish Me, Please!
Thanks for the visit and talk to you later.
