Hello all! I’m doing a May challenge from the Hobby Polish Bloggers. The first one is “inspired by fashion”. I subscribe to Elle magazine, so I went through the past few issues looking for inspiration. I found so many, that I needed my sister’s help in narrowing the field. (More on that later.) We both chose this one:
What a fun design, right? I thought it would be a breeze. Oh, how wrong I was. After 4 tries, with blobs too big or not spaced right or both (urgh!) I decided to bring out my striping tape and try the design that way. Bingo Bango! Much better. It’s a big outside my comfort zone, but I really like the abstract-ness to the design. I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Green With Envy, Zoya Amy, Zoya Ali, and essie aruba blue. What do you think? If I do this again, I’ll be centering it a bit more on the nail, as that’s the one thing I don’t think turned out well.
Oh, and about finding all those fashion ideas? I think I’m going to do a semi-weekly challenge of fashion inspired nails! I had so much fun finding ideas, and I think it will be a good way for me to grow and challenge myself. After this crazy week is over, look for more fashion inspired nails coming soon! As always,
