LDTTWC Day 8- Let's Do The Time Warp Again!

 Let's do the time warp again! So for our final day in this challenge, we were to time warp back to one of our favorite manicures and do it all over again!

My design is, "Under the Sea," inspired by this post from Carly. I loved her idea of "The Little Mermaid," for a nostalgic movie and just had to try it out myself. :)

Let's take a look at the results...
 On my first finger, we have part of Ariel's green tail as well as her gorgeous red hair. I thought to myself, "her tail and hair are iconic, but I don't think I can paint a face; plus, I don't have skin colored polish either..." So, my solution was to ditch her face and show a "lower" view. LOL :)

Then, on my middle finger, I painted a coral and shell design inspired by this tutorial by Teen Vogue. I thought it was so cute! Although, theirs is a little better than mine...

And then there's adorable little Flounder swimming his way across my ring finger. Maybe he just got through the seaweed jungle on my pinkie. :)
For my thumb, I created a basic scale-y design using tape! If you don't already know this, I LOVE masking tape for making manicures! It helps create such great shapes and lines that I just can't get with freehand! :)

Colors Used:

  • Blue base- Wet n Wild Fast Dry Teal or No Teal
  • Coral- Wet n Wild Wild Shine Blazed
  • Mint green- OPI Gargantuan Green Grape (I just have to say, I love this name. Don't you? :)
  • Lime green- Sinful Colors Nail Art Sour Apple
  • Neon blue (for designs)- Sinful Colors Nail Art Hey Dear!
  • White- Wet n Wild French White Creme
  • Black- Wet n Wild Wild Shine Black Creme
  • Yellow- Sally Hansen Insta Dri Lightening
  • Red- Revlon Love That Red

Unfortunately, "Let's Do The Time Warp Challenge," hosted by Neverland Nail Blog and Nail Polish Canada is now officially over. :'( There will be prizes though, so we'll have to wait and see if I win. The reward is the Color Club Holographic Hues Collection and 3 polishes of the winners' choice from China Glaze's Wicked Collection. Hope I win! :)

As always, check out the other great manis from other competitors!
