What tutorials inspired their nail art today??

Erin at Beauty Bumbles
Stephanie at A Little Polish
Jess at Nearly Natural Nails
I ended up doing two manicures for this one, the first manicure I tried was an epic fail (you can see photos at the bottom of the post). But then my second attempt at a different tutorial was a success. I have a bookmarked folder in my "favourites" with links to various tutorials I want to try, so I had lots of backups.
Now, without rambling on, I give you my nails inspired by this you-tube tutorial by NailsKathy.
I used Finger Paints Black Expressionism as my base and did the lines with KleanColor neon pink.
The next two photos help to show how neon the pink polish is (my skin just looks a little discolored)
My original plan was to do a dry water marble using this tutorial by DIY Nail Art Design. I wanted it to look like this gorgeous dry marble design by Nailsymo. It did NOT work out as planned... my sister said it looked cute when she saw it at a distance, but when I showed her up close she was like... "oh.. you should take photos from further back" lol.
I will have to attempt this another time.. if anyone has any advice on how to improve I'd love to hear it!
