Nail Polish Blogger Challenge - Day 4

Good evening! I just did my nails for today so I'm posting them a bit late.

Here they are!
They're not the most well done but I really like them!

Ages ago, I saw a picture on tumblr of gray nails with a neon pink tip. It's been in my mind to do ever since, so today is the day!

It's not the neatest up close but from a distance it looks great! 
(And my ring looks great too - Walmart $7)

The pink is, again, Color Club Peppermint Twist
The gray is China Glaze Recycle.
And the black stripes which I did with a striper brush were done with Wet N Wild Black Creme. (My striper brush sucks...)

I did the thumb differently as an accent nail. I stamped the bow image from Konad m59 with Peppermint Twist but it didn't stamp opaque enough - so I used a detail brush to fill it in. It looks a bit messy but I actually sort of link the imperfect look of this nail.

How did I get the inspiration for my bow nail? A new adorable shirt I have...

I got it from Forever 21 and I am in love with it. Of course it needed a nail dedication.

I hope you guys liked this manicure! I wonder what I'll come up with for the next three days...
