31dc2012 - day 30

Okay, I'm late again. Later than before. I've gotta hurry this post up!

The theme for today is Inspired By A Tutorial.

I decided to copy from my friend Laurie @ Dressed Up Digits, and recreate the same mani she did today. I saw it and I just loved it!

Tada! Herringbone print!
It looks ultra complicated, right? But it actually isn't, because it's just a stamp plus a few added lines.

This look comes from Miss 80 Million on YouTube. Click here for the tutorial.

You start by using the chevron stamp from Bundle Monster BM-201, and then using a striper, you add the vertical lines.

I used OPI - Gargantuan Green Grape - Matte as my base color.

I really like the color of this polish, but I'm still not sure how I feel about flat matte polishes.
This is a bit brighter than the original Gargantuan Green Grape and it's practically a matte-dupe for Color Club's Twiggie.

I used Konad Special Black for the stamping and an It's So Easy Stripe Rite for the striping.

I noticed that my striper polish dried matte as well, and stamping usually turns out mostly matte, so I decided to just skip the topcoat and leave this one matte!
(Plus I'm sure I would have smeared the hell out of it! Haha!)

I'll probably add topcoat tomorrow before I take it off just to see what it looks like.

Tomorrow is the LAST DAY! It's good that it is ending now because I am really burned out. As you can tell by the three last-minute posts I did this week. Haha! I'm just too busy for changing my nails every day now.
I can't wait to enjoy a manicure for a few days!


  1. What a genius idea! Looks great on you :)

  2. I have wanted GGG or G to the third power for some time. I love grapes!

    Matte is even better!

    This manicure is perfection. Good work!


  3. I like this design - it is a good idea to add the extra stripes.

  4. Wow I like this! Reminds me of woven leaf baskets ^_^

  5. Very nice! I like how eye-catching the pattern is :)

  6. Super stylish designs and very nicely with a matte green polish! Love it <3
