31 Day Challenge: Day 6 - Violet Stripes and Dots
Hello! I've fallen behind on the 31 Day Challenge - but better late than never, right? So I am trying to play catch-up and have Day 6 to show you tonight! I took inspiration for this mani from Sheila at Pointless Cafe and I love how it turned out!
This wasn't the mani I originally had planned for this day, but what I wanted to do wasn't working so I decided to go with something else. I was browsing this Buzzfeed post with several Halloween mani ideas from Sheila and remembered how much I loved this mani and wanted to recreate it! You can check out Sheila's original post here.
I used a base of Colors by Llarowe Garden of the Gods and created a gradient using Paint Box Polish The Knight Bus. I love this combo and that both violet and red-violet are represented here! The design was created with acrylic paint. I topped it off with Girly Bits Glitter Glaze and KBShimmer Oh Matte! (though I also included a picture before adding the matte topcoat).
Before adding matte topcoat...
Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
