LiverpoolLashes Sponsorship September Nail Art Challenge Final Day & Results

So finally I am on my last day of my nail challenge to raise money for Cancer Research.  I realise that we are now in October but I still had one challenge to do and September only had thirty days so I'm doing it anyway. 

I'm not going to lie, it's not been easy as I'm so used to having my Shellac on and attending to other people's nails however I would do whatever it took to raise money for this cause.

It all started with the lovely Victoria asking for me to do this nail art challenge and she would donate £10 to a charity of my choice.  As both my Nanna and Grandad suffered with cancer, my chosen charity is Cancer Research UK.  When I announced it, more kind people added to Victoria's initial contribution so

So here we are, on the final day and I actually feel a little bit emotional!  As I write this post I have raised £633 for Cancer Research which is fantastic.  If any more donations are made to my Just Giving Page I shall update this post. 


Now... for the finally time, I shall show you today's challenge.   All it said was 'Honor Nails You' which I literally have no idea what it means.  I figured that it meant nails that were something about me so of course I had to do my beautiful city of Liverpool.  I chose some of my favourite buildings and then a big heart to show my love for it.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everyone who has donated for this challenge and all of the love and support that you have given me along the way, that big heart above it is for you too.

LiverpoolLashes Sponsorship September Nail Art Challenge Day 30 Tutorial

It all started with the lovely Victoria asking for me to do this nail art challenge and she would donate £10 to a charity of my choice.  As both my Nanna and Grandad suffered with cancer, my chosen charity is Cancer Research UK.  When I announced it, more kind people added to Victoria's initial contribution so I have set up a Just Giving Page, if anyone can spare a donation of any amount of shrapnel I would be more than appreciative.  In return I shall be doing this challenge every single day throughout September on here and this is what I am going to be doing:

Today's challenge was a tutorial which I have decided to do in a picture format.  I wanted to do a print as I love doing them so I chose to do Quatrefoil as it's interesting and different.  I think that it looks better with classic colours like black and white but chose navy instead, so let's get started!

1.  First apply your base coat and colour.

2.  Use a dotting tool and white polish to dot four dots so that they're touching each other in a flower like shape.

3.  Take your original colour and dot four dots in the centre to give you the illusion of a white outline.

4.  Use a small dotting tool or detailing nail art brush to draw little flicks on each corner with your white polish.

Today's challenge is to be inspired by the supernatural.  Having just organised a Halloween blog post for a few weeks time I thought of ghosts which I suppose are supernatural..?!  I don't know!  I do an ombre from black to navy to give it a bit of a different spooky feel to it.
