The NCC presents "Inspired by a Tutorial" #2 - Robin Moses' Jerseylicious

Hello everyone! Today I have the second of my four "Inspired by a Tutorial" manis for the Nails Challenge Collaborative's January theme. It was always a given that I was going to pick one of Robin's awesome designs (you can visit her YouTube channel here), but with so many to choose from, it took a lot of time to finally settle on this one - the Jerseylicious Nail Art - Diva Bling design.

I'm not fan of foil. In fact I've done it twice, once for part of my nail tech assessment, and then once again to prove to myself that I could do it. But I hate playing around with it so I went with a Sally Hansen HD polish in LCD Pink as my base. I followed the tutorial and added the white sections (using nail polish instead of acrylic paint) with French White and then LA Colors Black Velvet for the black lines with a striping brush. I finished with Seche Vite.

Robin's designs are always amazing but this one I totally fell in love with, and I'm happy with the way my recreation turned out.

I still have two more "tutorial" manis to come in January, but in the meantime, follow the links below to see what all the other talented NCC ladies have painted :)
