31 DAY CHALLENGE -- Day 30: Inspired by a Tutorial


Hey everyone! King Boo and I are back for Day 30 of the Challenge, which is INSPIRED BY A TUTORIAL NAILS. First of all... tomorrow is the LAST day of the Challenge! :gasp: I um.. I legit don't think I'll know what to do with myself when it's over.. No more spending hours 3-4 times a week working on my nails? Going back to doing regular beauty posts? Say what?! 

Anyways.. onto the nails! As I told you yesterday, King Boo is awesome and I like hanging out with him and he won't be coming off of my nails any time soon.. so I started looking for a tutorial that I could both be inspired by and successfully incorporate him into. Thankfully, my hubby is a smart man and he asked, "Why don't you do one of those tape looks that you like so much?" Why don't I indeed?!

It's perfect. I actually did learn about them from Erika over at Chloe's Nails. Erika is the undisputed Queen of scotch tape manis, and she's also one of the first blogs I ever followed. Unfortunately, she has had a lot going on lately and hasn't really blogged in a long time.. but I hope she makes it back soon. We all miss her!

The base on King Boo is Sinful Colors Black on Black. He was made with acrylic paints. The other nails have a base of Sinful Colors Snow me White, then I used a coat of SV and let it dry before taping off the top part of my nails. The yellow is Color Club Almost Famous. I used my black LA Colors Art Deco Striper for the dividing color, and a dotting tool and Rimmel's Fever for the red dots. Another coat of SV smoothed everything out and completed the look!

So I'm not even gonna lie. These are pretty much my most favoritest nails EVER. :D
