31 Day Challenge - Day 21: Inspired by a Colour

Hey guys!

Today marks the beginning of the "inspired by" series of manis and I'm really excited about many of the designs I have planned!

The first inspired by prompt is inspired by a colour, and I think most of us have interpreted that as inspired by a particular polish. I went completely and utterly literal with my design today and I think it's a really fun mani!

As you have already guessed, the polish(es) that I chose to pull inspiration from are a few from the extremely coveted China Glaze OMG Collection. With that inspiration, I decided to create what I'm calling a "Text Talk Mani".

The base colours I used are obvious, but I'll run through them anyways. The index finger features China Glaze DV8, my middle finger has China Glaze OMG, my ring finger features China Glaze BFF and on my pinky nail is China Glaze IDK.

To add a little more to the "text talk" theme of this, I also did some special characters including a hashtag, an explanation point, a percentage sign and a question mark. All of the lettering was done using a small detail brush and Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme.

And here's a flash photo to show off the holographic finish of the OMG polishes.

So that's twenty-one down, only ten more to go! See you tomorrow with some nails inspired by a song!
