the 31 Days Challenge Day 28 - Inspired By Your Favorite Color

My favorite color... that's an easy one. If you know me any more then one minute, you know my most favorite color is Orange. So it was so clear I will work on some orange manicure today. However, no one thought, not even myself, that I will end up with such a lovely mani! This doesn't happen often at all but today I am really happy with my mani.

So I was googling some images of orange things to get an inspiration for my orange manicure, when I saw this image. I looked at it for a while, went on with my search but after another minute I came back. I can do it alright! So I started with a thick coat of Bourjois - Orange Creation. I then sponged some yellow stains using Rescue Beauty Lounge - Yellow Fever. With my Striper brush and Zoya - Ziv I did the gold stripes and then I covered just part of them with China Glaze Liquid Leather. That was the easy part. Then I sponged some Milani - White On The Spot, starting on the tip of my accent nail and it's both sides all the way to the middle of my nail in a U shape. Then little by little I drew all the details using mostly my loyal Liquid Leather. For the nose I used Model's Own - Pastel Pink and I lined it's top with China Glaze - Dance Baby. The nose shadows are Orange Creation mixed with one drop of Liquid Leather and the highlights around the eyes is Orange Creation mixed with a few drops of Milani - White On The Spot. It took me the good part of two hours but I was really really happy with how it turned out! 
The funny thing was, when I looked back at the photo I found on google to see it's source and credit them properly, I found out that they even had a tutorial... So if you ever want to try it yourself - Tiger Nails.
