NCC "Inspired by a Tutorial" month #3 - Green and Purple Abstract

Hello everyone! Today I have my third January mani for the Nail Challenge Collaborative and our theme this month is "Inspired by a Tutorial". Today I have picked a tutorial by Raquel Pimentel from her YouTube channel LOVE4NAILS

She paints a lot of abstracts using great colour combinations and I have been a fan of hers for a long time. A favourite of mine has always been this green and purple abstract design, so I decided to try my hand at that! I used all nail polish instead of acrylic paint, but other than that I followed all the instructions.

I started with two coats of Sinful Colors Glass Pink, and then added a wide French using LA Colors French White, then used Color Club Fly With Me and Revlon Impulsive to add the abstract pattern following the tutorial, and topped with Seche Vite.

I love Raquel's YouTube channel! She has such a huge variety of designs and styles. Her tutorials are concise and clear and I also adore her accent! 

I have one more tutorial-inspired mani for you this month and I'm finding it hard to pick the last one! There may have to be a few more scattered over the blog so I can get round to doing all my favourites! Check out the other NCC manis in the links below and I will be back with you soon! Happy Sunday :)
