31DC2013 Day 30 - Inspired by a Tutorial

Turns out today is 2 for 1 day because I'm really wanting to finish up the 31 Day Nail Challenge. Day 30 of the challenge calls to create a manicure inspired by a tutorial. I chose to try my hand at a quatrefoil print by Christabell Nails. I first saw her tutorial on Instagram, but she does have an extended version on YouTube as well which is what I would suggest you check out. It is so simple to create this look using just two shades of polish, a dotting tool and a small brush. Who could have imagined...

For the manicure I used a beautiful pink foil from the Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend collection named Алёнушка (Alenushka) and the black OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?. I also used Nicole by OPI Matte Top Coat for this manicure to preserve the satin finish of Алёнушка. Since I followed a tutorial, I won't go into my usual description of what I did to create the look. Instead, I'll just get right to the manicure...

Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend Алёнушка (Alenushka)
A pink foil metallic. This appears to be made up of tiny metallic pink particles that all come together beautifully on the nail. It applies easily and provides full coverage in three thin coats. The finish is soft satin that I'm crazy about. I just can't stop touching my nails whenever I wear this finish and I hope to see more of it in the future. Swatches are with no top coat...
