10 Day Challenge: Day 6

Hi everyone! I have some really exciting news! I have officially reached 400 followers! :D Thanks everyone! You guys rawk! In other news, something really sad happened yesterday. My nail broke. I was walking around and noticed that my nail seemed really square. I then realized it had been snapped!! Then, being the stupid person I am, I fiddled with it resulting in a really ugly nubbin. Despite my nubbin, I hope you enjoy my take on today's challenge :)

I don't know if anybody else noticed Ashley Bensons awesome nails in the September issue of Seventeen Magazine. I have been wanting to recreate them for the longest time but never got around to it. I figured now was the perfect opportunity.

I started off painting one half of the nail red, and the other half white. Then I stamped a fish scale (?) image off a Bundle Monster french tip plate. I stamped a different image on the other half. Afterwards I added little red polka dots on one half. Topped it all of with one coat of Pro-FX. Afterwards I noticed that on my red side, the "design" was black instead of red. Ashley's were red instead of black. Oh well, I don't have a stamp-able red anyway :P And on top of that, I ran out of my usual black so I had to use my backup one which isn't that opaque :/

Here is a pic of the nails:

Overall, even though they didn't turn out exactly the same, I think they look decent(: What about you??
