Inspiration Recreation

This week, I have some manis that I'm really proud of. I did a few entries for contests where you recreate a mani you are inspired by. I generally get a lot of my inspiration from other nail lovers already, but this was fun to try to recreate them exactly! Hope you love them!


This first mani was a recreation of one done by @nailartbysig a long time ago. I loved it! I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, then free handed the blue, green and purple stripes with acrylic paint. I used a dotting tool and black acrylic paint for the polka dots.


This next one was a recreation of a mani originally done by @christabellnails. This is all free handed with acrylic paint. I loved this one because it was a combination of colors I would not normally put together, yet the outcome is beautiful!

This one was really hard to recreate for me...I don't know why. It was originally designed by @so_nailicious. Kind of a funky take on tribal. I used Maybelline ColorShow in Bare Escape as the base and then free handed the rest with acrylic paints. 


This recreation was inspired by @nailsbynoy. I started with a base of Wet N Wild's Ebony Hates Chris and then again, free handed the rest with acrylic paints. I love how simple, yet bold it is!


This final recreation was more of a "for fun" kinda of thing. The wonderful @allthingsryah is a beautiful young lady, whose family endured the tragedy of losing their home to a fire. Ryah is very inspiring herself, in that she appears to do what she can to stay happy, in light of everything that has gone on! The base was done using Sinful Colors GoGo Girl and the design was done with....acrylic paint! Haha.


Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for reading! Don't forget you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook as well!
