Challenge Day 3: Inspired by a Tutorial

I am absolutely giddy over today's mani! The Challenge today is Inspired by a Tutorial, I decided to use the Cinderella manicure posted by CutePolish on YouTube, but switched to Snow White, because, well, the only tattoos we had around the house that would fit my nail were Snow White or Jasmine, and in the end, I chose Snow White because I liked the color scheme of her dress better. Sorry Jasmine. Maybe next time. Oh, and no one tell A I used a couple of her tattoos.

Snow White Nails
 This mani was so fun because I really got to get creative with it, instead of doing all of my nails the same with the princess as an accent nail, I went with a "skittles" mani, where each nail is different.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps & Dorothy Who?
For my thumb, this is 2 coats of China Glaze Ruby Pumps, isn't it gorgeous? Same on my pointer, but I added China Glaze Dorothy Who? for a blue/red glitter gradient, my middle finger is 2 coats of China Ghaze White on White with a temporary tattoo. My ring finger took the most work, it is 2 coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, then I used a piece of striping tap to cover a diagonal line. I then carefully painted Ruby Pumps over the yellow on one side of the tape, and Dorothy Who? over the other, and slowly removed the striping tape. My pinkie is 2 coats of Mellow Yellow with a cannibalized piece of another tattoo. Everything is topped off with Seche Vite.
