31 Day Challenge! Day 31- Recreate your Favorite Challenge (Double Feature)

OMG!

**First off**- A BIG Happy Birthday to my Dad!! The bestest dad ever. I love you papa!!!

  Wow!! I cannot believe that today is the final day of the challenge. It is a very bittersweet feeling but I am so happy and proud than Rie, Sammy and I made it all the way through. For today we decided to each re-create our favorite looks from our challenge buddies. I had the hardest time because both Sammy and Rie did some AMAZING manis during the last 31 days. Let's get started!!

  From Rie's blog  I decided to re-create her Nyan Cat nails that she did for the Rainbow themed day. They were just too freaking cute and I love Nyan Cat!! Proof to follow my pics lool!
 For this mani I used all Bettina colors but there was so mani colors used that I just went ahead and posted a pic of all the colors. It was all done freehand and I am so proud of my little Nyan cat! As much as I suck as freehanding I feel like doing this challenge has made me more comfortable with it. This was actually really fun to work on :D. Rie, I hope you like!!


Oh yeah... I totally have a Nyan Cat tee!

Here are all my colors for Nyan cat nails.

 From Sammy's blog I went with her beautiful "Rainbow Fish" nails. I just absolutely loved that mani and the inspiration behind it. I also loved her use of color and stamp so I just had to go for it.
Ignore the nubby pinkie. I suffered a painful break literally between working on these two manis :(. So for this one I started with Two coats of the amazing A England Tristam. I stamped using Bundle Monster plate BM209 and Nfu.Oh #61. To fill in the little scales I used CG Rich and Famous and Frostbite, A England Galahad and Wet 'n' Wild Kaleidoscope. These are just so pretty! I totally want to do this again in different colors.

I really hope both Sammy and Rie like my recreations of their creations. This challenge has really pushed me to try new things and I encourage anyone who has the time (and courage lol) to take this on.  I'm so glad I had the "company" of Two lovely bloggers throughout the whole thing and that made it even better! It will be an adjustment to be able to do "whatever I want" again lol. I mean I always to what i want but you guys know what I mean right? I have a whole new respect for The Daily Nail now :D 

I seriously CANNOT wait to see what Sammy and Rie have in store for us today :D:D!!! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their recreations!

See you guys tomorrow with pretty swatchies!!
