It’s the second last day of the 31 Day Challenge! I’ve actually already done my nails for tomorrow so I’m officially finished and these were the last nails I did. Today’s theme is inspired by a tutorial. You probably know by now that I enjoy recreating other nail art looks I love, but not everyone does tutorials. I had to search a little to find a tutorial that fit my freehand criteria for the challenge. In the end I picked a water drops tutorial by Starrynail. This is the second look by her I’ve recreated this challenge (the first was my Game of Thrones look) – she just does such amazing freehand art!
I tried water drops once before – 3 years ago, just after I started this blog. They were such a disaster that I never shared them, so let’s all have a laugh at them now:
The tutorial definitely helped! I stared with a base of Supermoon Lacquer The Kinda Guy I’d Stalk in School and used acrylic paint for the water drops.
The tutorial did help a lot but I still felt like there might have been some magic ingredient I was missing! I did think I got better as I went along – I finished with my thumbnail and I definitely thought that one was the best!
Only one more day left in the challenge! Some more nails inspired by tutorials are at these links:
