Fashion Friday

Today’s Fashion Friday, I have for you an inspiration based on a shirt:

Fashion Friday

I started with 2 coats Sinful Colors Lavander followed by one coat of HK Girl.

Then, I used striping tape, and put a thick coat of Sinful Colors Mesmerize over the top, then quickly took off the striping tape.

Then, after a coat of HK Girl, I used striping tape again on the sides of the nail, and painted on a coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black:

I was going to do another stripe of a different blue color by the black, but seriously my nails are just not that big! I still need to work on my stripes being more even, but they are better than what they used to look like!

You’ll also notice that I’m trying out different placements, sizes, and opacities of my watermark. Please bear with me as I try to get it “just right”! Have a great Friday, and let me know what you think of today’s Fashion Friday in the comments! As always,

  1. I have Lavander but I don’t think I have used it before. It’s so gorgeous…must wear it soon. I said I was going to give my nails a break this week since I did enough posts over the weekend for the rest of this week but now I’m itching to paint my nails. I actually filed them way down so maybe I should let them grow out a little more. You’re doing really nice creative things with these inspiration nail looks.

    • Thanks Cynthia! 🙂 Lavander is now probably on my top ten of favorite nail polishes. My non-swatching hand needs help in growing out, so I’m trying to get that going. They’re nubs right now 😦

  2. I love this! It’s pretty cool. I wouldn’t even think of doing things like this. I always get a blank head when I want something different and end up doing dots/flowers/bows.
