Inspired by a Color for the #31DC2017Weekly


We are in the home stretch of the weekly version of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge.  The last 10 weeks of the challenge are the toughest prompts.  All of the themes from here on out are all pulling inspiration from art and culture.  Usually, I start to get heavy on the hand painting.  Hopefully, my ideas will play out well on the nails.  For this week, we are doing manicures inspired by a color.  I was inspired by the color teal.  So I create a smooshy marbled manicure using several teal shades.  Oh yeah...and I gave my nails the chop!  Back to those little nubbins that I love so much :)

For this manicure, I followed a tutorial by Polished by Becky on doing a Squishy Marble Mani.  I have done similar manicure before using saran wrap but using a stamper made the colors even more swirly and cool looking.  For the base, I used OPI " Can't Find My Czechbook" then I blobbed on the rest of the polishes onto my stamper.  Then just stamped that blob of teal colors onto my nail until it was swirly enough for my liking.  Then I topped it all off with a glossy top coat after clean up.

The polishes I used:  OPI "Can't Find My Czechbook", OPI "My Boyfriend Scales Walls", Mary Kay "Tempting Teal" and Revlon "Dealer's Choice".
