Oh Mon Dieu! 31 Day Challenge Day 31 - Recreate Your Favorite (from someone else)

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Hey everyone! Can you believe its the end today? I want to give a huge thank you to Eeeek! Nail Polish!, Craftynail, and Brijit’s Digits for creating and hosting this amazing nail art challenge. It was a lot of fun to participate in and my nail art skills have definitely improved because of it. Some of the themes in this challenge also pushed me to go outside of my comfort zone and try new things I never thought of doing before too. Anyways, let's see my last and final manicure for the Oh Mon Dieu! It’s the Rather Awesome 31 Day Challenge today.

For day 31, the theme is recreate your favorite manicure from someone else. There were a lot of great manicures in this challenge but one of my favorites has to be from Eeeek! Nail Polish!. I'm recreating her OMD Challenge Day 13 - Dots manicure. I just love the look of it and you all know my love for polka dots.

For my base color, I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Using some scotch tape, I tapped my nails off in a slated shape. Taking Nicole by OPI Selena, Nicole by OPI Find Your Passion, Nicole by OPI That's Totally Red-ical, and Nicole by OPI Spring Break, I used my dotting tool to create dots all over the tapped off center. Immediately after, I quickly peeled off the tape. After letting it dry, I applied my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Sadly, I didn't wait long enough for the base color to dry before applying the scotch tape so it got dented a bit. Plus, I smudged the dots with my top coat. Other than that, I'm really happy with how this turned out. The colors I used here worked really well together too. What do you think of this dot manicure?
