31 Day Challenge: Day 30

Day 30! One day left! Holy cow!

Today's theme is Inspired by a Tutorial. There are so many nail art tutorials around... It is nearly impossible to decide on one to do for this challenge.
I knew I wanted something simple and fast, and who better to showcase than Kayla Shevonne!

Kayla has done several tutorials of her nail art and I suggest you check them out! I chose the adorable Cherry Blossom Tutorial for today!

Please, please excuse the crappiness of this mani! And go look at Kayla's instead!

You see, my striper brush is all splayed and I am in serious need of a new one. And then I tested out a new topcoat and it smudged my pretty flowers.

Sad, because this really is cute. Cute and messy and smudged...

But when you don't look so closely, it looks adorable!

For this mani I used:
China Glaze - For Audrey
Wet N Wild - Black Creme
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Whirlwind White
Sally Hansen Insta-Dru - Presto Pink

Check out the tutorial I linked at the beginning of the post for a closer look on how to do it!

I'll leave you today with a sneak peak of some upcoming swatches...

Can anyone guess what those pretties are? :)

See you tomorrow with my final challenge mani!


  1. Oh whatever, this looks awesome! Not crappy at all.

    And RE: swatches, I know what they are, or at least some of them! I have all the insider info, though... :D

    1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  3. I've always adored cherry blossom! But I failed trying to get it on my nails :P
    I think it looks really nice! :)

  4. After seeing the thumbnail for this post, I thought the theme today was your favorite drink! Your design looks like a perfect nail version of an Arizona Green Tea can. Awesome. :)

  5. Rebecca killing nails...;) lovely one ♥

  6. LOL, I do that so often... look how cute it looks... from far away :D
    But I do like your cherry blossoms even up close :)

  7. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
