31 Day Challenge - Day 29: Inspired by the Supernatural

Hey everyone!

The theme today is to create a nail design that's inspired by the supernatural, and this is the second day in a row that I've felt rather uninspired by the prompt. I feel like both yesterday's and today's themes are sort of limiting and they've definitely been my least favourites of the challenge.

Regardless, I obviously did manage to come up with a design for today! I'm calling this design "dragon scales".

I was pretty determined to get one more full nail stamping design in before the challenge ended, so that's something I'm happy about! I'm also pleased that my stamping practice during this challenge has really paid off. :)

The base colour for this design is Illamasqua Radium, and then I used small bits of a makeup sponge to add random spots of other green shades, including:

China Glaze Laser Lime
China Glaze Paper Chasing
Orly Here Comes Trouble
Orly It's Not Rocket Science
Orly Lucky Duck
Orly Space Cadet

Finally, I stamped the scales using Konad White and plate BM-215.

I actually do really like how this turned out, I just don't think it fits the theme as well as I would have liked.

Only two more days left! Check back tomorrow for nails inspired by a tutorial!
