Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is nails inspired by a pattern. Last week Emily over at Very Emily did a tutorial for a beautiful Asa No Ha pattern and I knew I had to try it for today. I started with a base of Tip Top Cream Puff on my middle and ring fingers, then did the pattern step by step as shown in Emily’s tutorial. I wasn’t sure that my triangles would come out aligned correctly if I did it exactly the way she showed in the tutorial, so I rather painted the horizonal lines first, then completed the triangles, then finished the details. Go take a look at her tutorial to see what I’m talking about!A couple of times I couldn’t get the lines quite thin enough, but I love these nails! The pattern is so beautiful. I wouldn’t have known anything other than that this is a pretty pattern, but apparently it is a traditional Japanese pattern. I just know it looks lovely on my nails! Only after doing these did I realised I stamped the same pattern on my nails last year. The stamped version looks more delicate but I think I did a great job for freehand!
Last year I recreated a colourful pattern from a book I have:
What do you think of this year’s pattern?Tomorrow’s theme is inspired by an artwork. I have a great idea in mind so I hope I manage to execute it!Take a look at the rest of the pattern-inspired nails for today:
