The funny thing is, I had the most trouble coming up with an idea for this one. I mean, you can do a design based on any special event in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD or your own personal one. This has gotta be the most open ended day of the challenge and it stumped me!
I finally decided to do a design in honor of my Grandma, and her 83rd birthday party. We threw her an awesome luau in her backyard, and it ended up being her last birthday with us. It will forever be a special memory I have. These nails are based on the design of the dress I wore. This is the one theme day where I KNOW nobody will have chosen the exact same thing!

I also used a video from that day as inspiration. I remember walking around taking video of everything, even the food, and I'm glad I soaked up as much of that day as possible. Except since I was behind the camera and busy with that, there's no pictures of me from that day that I know of. To add to it, both my black striper AND my regular black polish have gotten thick. This will do, especially since I totally didn't even want to attempt to accurately redo that pattern, haha.
I honed my rap skills in my Grandma's yard over the years, and as you can see behind me, my uncles had their instruments there too and played. These family parties are what I miss so much about my Grandma's house and why the memory of that day will always hold a special place in my heart! :]
