31 DC: DAY 30: INSPIRED BY A TUTORIAL

Today is the last day of the 31 Day Challenge!   WOOOOOOOHOOOO!!!!  I am so relieved!  Haahaa!   Today, I have a very special post for you that was inspired by TWO tutorials!
This first one was inspired by the amazing Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails.  When I first got into nail polish, I stumbled across Chalkboard Nails' blog, and I saw her ruffle mani.  I was floored at the amazingness of that manicure and I never forgot it!   That was a year ago, that I first saw it, and today I recreated that manicure for you.  OF course, my first attempt was such a fail, that I almost quit, but Sarah and Ashley from Ashley is Polish Addicted encouraged me to keep trying. So this is my 2nd attempt.   While it isn't perfect, I was still quite happy with it.
My 2nd inspired by a tutorial is a diamond pattern that I did inspired by my friend, Jin-jit's tutorial over on her blog, Superficially Colorful.   She made it look so easy and who can't follow a simple picture tutorial?   I did take some short-cuts and it shows; but I have learned my lesson, and will not take short cuts next time!  
I hope you enjoyed my 30 days of untrieds!
