31 Day Nail Challenge: Week 30 - Inspired by a Tutorial

So here we are at week 30, the penultimate week of this nail art challenge. It's crazy how the time has gone!

This week is Inspired by a Tutorial. There are tons of tutorials for nail art online. You can pretty much google for a tutorial on any theme, design, technique, etc and you'll find one. So this week feels kind of cheaty. I guess back when it was made there were less tutorials around so it would have been more of a challenge and less of a "oo I want to do spoon nail art *google spoon nail art* *get 100 results* ooo which spoon tutorial shall I use?" sort of situation.

I'm kind of tempted to do a spoon manicure now.

I like spoons.

Anyway, enough of my cutlery preferences and more on my SUPER CUTE NAILS!

This tutorial (from Cindy Blogs Nails and Chalkboard Nails) is pretty popular/well known and has been circulating around for a while now. I love how simple and cute it is so I thought I'd have a go. I actually decided to use this tutorial back in week 2 or 3 when I was planning ahead a bit lol so it felt rude to change my mind now.


Everyone is fond of owls. This manicure is bright, cheerful and makes me smile when I lookie at my hands =) here's what I used.

Base: Orly: Bonder
Background: Barry M: Nude
Pink Owl: Models Own: Soda Pop Pink, Sinful Colors: Easy Going
Yellow Owl: Bloom: Daisy, Rimmel: Lemon Drop
Green Owl: Models Own: Jade Stone, Nails Inc: Wimbledon
Blue Owl: Kiko 337, Models Own: Beth's Blue
Purple Owl: Barry M: Berry Ice Cream, Models Own: Utopia.
Little Owl Noses <3: China Glaze: Papaya Punch
Eyes: Rio Nail Art Pens (White and Black)
Top Coat: Colour Club:Vivid Top Coat

I love having a rainbow of owls on my nails. I think my favourite is the blue owl, especially as I messed up one of the eyes on my left hand and he looks super derpy. I wish the colour contrast on the yellow owl showed up more. You can hardly see his cute little belly spots. Aww.

Next week is the last week of the challenge! The theme is Re-create your Favourite Challenge and I'll be featuring *your* favourite of my challenge manicures with my first tutorial so stay tuned for that!

No news from Gemx, I hope she's ok and too crazy-busy! I'm sure she'll have some fab nails to show you very soon =) I'll update when she does.

Hope on over to Alli's blog to check out her awesome nails tooooo!

That's it from me for this week =)
