31 DAY CHALLENGE -- Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

Hey everyone! Today is Day 26 of the challenge, which means INSPIRED BY A PATTERN NAILS. Originally, I had wanted to do nails inspired by a sewing pattern because my mom likes to sew.. but when push came to shove.. with Thanksgiving and Black Friday, I just didn't have as much time to spend on something like that as I would have wanted. So I decided to go with a tutorial I love instead.

Yes, it's none other than the amazing Kayla Shevonne's Patchwork Tutorial! I've loved this forever and been meaning to recreate it.. and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! It was SUPER quick and easy! 

Unfortunately, I recently broke 6 nails and had to cut them all off. Boooo! Since they're so short now, I thought adding the stitching detail would be too much..  so I left that off. Chris said they reminded him of stained glass, which works too.. I guess? Either way, I still like them.

I used Zoya Izzy (pink) and Tallulah (blue), and LA Colors Live (silver), then my newly thinned out LA Colors Art Deco black striper for the lines. I can't wait to do these again (with the stitching!) when my nails have grown out!


  1. Hey This is a cool nail look! I am just wondering how you got the labels on the side? Cause for some reason on my blog it is not working. So if you could message me back I would appreciate it. Thanks :))

  2. Hey! Go into your layout screen and add the "Labels" gadget to one of your sidebars. It will do the rest. Hope that helps!
