The Digit-al Dozen Does Re-Creations: Day 4 - Curved Lines and Dots

Hello, lovelies! It's Day 4 of Digit-al Dozen Re-Creations Week and I have a super fun mani to share with you today! The original version of the mani I have for you today was done by the lovely Mandy from Lady Maid Nails.

This mani is more of an "inspired by" than an exact "re-creation." Amanda originally created this look during Geometric Week (click the link to be taken to her post!). I created the same pattern as the original but used a very different color combo. I loved the colors she used but I was honestly dying to use ILNP Mega (X) as I have had it for a few weeks and still had not worn it. I love it as the base for this mani!

I started with 3 coats of ILNP Mega (X) (swatches will be coming soon) and once that was dry I added the curved lines using acrylic paint and a striping brush. I then added the dots with a dotting tool and Sinful Colors Black on Black. Once it was finished I topped it with G&G HK Girl Top Coat.

I really like how my ring finger and pinkie turned out. You can tell they were the last two nails I did because my lines are skinner. Haha!

And a picture of both manis side-by-side! I apologize that the poses are so different. It's the only pose I had that was square and the others just didn't look right in a collage.

Please make sure to check out all of the amazing talent below! I will see you tomorrow for the conclusion of Re-Creation Week!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
