New 31DC Day 31: Recreate someone else's mani

Finally, the last day of the challenge is here. I missed a couple days, but I made it to the end! I'm a little sad to not have a specific look to do each week, but I'm also relieved that I can go back to doing whatever I want. Challenges are a lot of pressure!
Anyway, for this day, I decided to recreate this look from Lisa at Polished Elegance. She did it for her favorite color day, along with a very helpful picture tutorial. I absolutely love argyle, and knew that I had to do it as soon as I saw hers.
I did 2 coats of SquareHue- Happy creme on all but my ring finger, where I did 2 coats of Sinful Colors- Snow Me White. Then I taped off the squares and painted Happy creme on the ring finger. Then I took a striping brush and Orly- Dazzle to do my lines. Topped it all with one coat of HK Girl.

I really love this look and want to do it again sometime, my right hand didn't look nearly as good as my left, I'm not too good with the striper yet. I hope I did this justice!


  1. Great job recreating her manicure! You did awesome :)

  2. Aw, I feel honored that you chose to recreate my manicure! :D
    And you did such a great job! :D

    1. Thank you! Since I first saw your green argyle mani, I knew I needed to do one too! Then your pink one just sent me over the edge! The tutorial was very helpful too :)
