Well it's day 25 and the theme today is to create a nail design that's inspired by fashion. I'll be upfront and admit that I'm not much of a fashionista. I mean, I'll stay on trend for the most part, but it's not something I'm ever overly concerned with.
I will say though that if I could afford to buy designer clothes/accessories, Kate Spade is where I would go. I really love the quirky, graphic and playful style. The Kate Spade Spring 2013 Collection really caught my eye - it's bright and youthful with accents of bows, polka dots and graphic floral prints. You can see the entire collection here.
The look I used as inspiration for today's nail design is a bold, geometric print dress accessorized by a bright pink handbag.
I have to be honest and say that this design was very time-consuming and also very difficult to do using my non-dominant hand. There's just so many lines! And the perfectionist in me wanted them to be perfect, so I kept going over every little mistake, which is why this took so long. But in the end, I'm very happy with how it turned out.
I used a lot of colours for this design, so I'll try to run through them all. The base colour that I started with on my two accents nails is OPI Mod About You. On my non-accent nails, I used China Glaze Pink Plumeria from the Summer Neons Collection. This colour is also featured on the accent nails. The other colours used on the accents nails include:
China Glaze Aquadelic
China Glaze Recyle
China Glaze Splish Splash
China Glaze Sun-Kissed
Wet 'n' Wild French White
And all of the black outlining was done with the It's So Easy Stripe Rite Paint in Black.
That makes twenty-five down and only six more to go! I'm really excited for what I have planned for the next two days, so be sure to check back!
