Quatrefoil Nails – 31 Day Challenge Day 8 – Metallic

Hi everyone!

It’s Day 8 of the 31 Day Challenge and today’s theme is metallic. We’re almost at the end of section 1 of the challenge! I was umm-ing and ahh-ing over what to do for today’s theme when I came across this tutorial for Quatrefoil Nails by ChristabellNails. It looked perfect enough to be stamped and wonderfully opulent – perfect for a metallic look. Painted Fingertips | Metallic Quatrefoil Nails for #31DC2014 day 8 - metallicI decided to stick with the gold and black colour scheme used by ChristabellNails as I loved how opulent it looked. I originally created the Quatrefoils on all my nails, but it didn’t look as good on my pinkie and ring finger so I decided to go with a textured skittlette and I’m glad I did. Painted Fingertips | Metallic Quatrefoil Nails for #31DC2014 day 8 - metallicFor the quatrefoil pattern I used Tip Top Eureka and Sinful Colors Black on Black. It was all done using 2 dotting tools and a brush. It’s not as hard as it looks so go take a look at the tutorial! For my pinkie and ring fingers I used LA Girl Sand Blast in Sands of Time and added a teardrop stud from the Born Pretty Store.

Last year I did a diagonal tape manicure using two metallic colours.

      It’s great right? When I saw it I thought it was stamped so once I saw it was done with a dotting tool I HAD to try it!
