31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 26 - Inspired by a Pattern

Hello folks!  Happy hump-day!  It's Day 26 of the 31 DAY NAIL ART CHALLENGE!  I wasn't too sure what to do for today's theme: Inspired by a Pattern.  What an abstract open-ended prompt!  I did several manis before I settled on this one, and I'm not even sure it's a pattern!  It started as a swirl pattern, but then sort of evolved into fingerprints!

For my fingerprint pattern nails I stared with one coat of Sation Oh My Oceania!  This was my first time using Sation polish...I got this in a swap with the lovely Chelsea of The Nail Network!  The formula was great on this one!  I only needed one coat to get the coverage you see here!  and the blue shimmer in this teal polish is FIERCE!  I then used my It's So Easy Stripe Rite striper in black to make my fingerprint swirls.  I used Out the Door top coat to smooth it all out!

You can definitely see the shimmer in these photos...it made the mani gorgeous with a little something extra special!  I know up close, the swirls aren't perfect, but I wanted them that way so that they looked like an individual fingertip swirl!  From a distance, the manicure was sort of hypnotizing!

Head on over to Sincerely Stephanie and check out what she came up with for today!  Click the image below to see all of my 31 Day Nail Art Challenge posts!  Tomorrow is Inspired by Artwork and I am really excited for what I have planned!
