Fashion Friday (It’s so late)

Okay, well, I had to take myself off to do some errands, and I come home and it’s 4 hours later and I haven’t yet posted Fashion Friday! :/ Sigh. Some days are just like that, ya know? Here is today’s inspiration, a Banana Republic ad from Elle magazine:

I started off with two coats of OPI Don’t Pretzel My Buttons. Then I drew loopy “petals” with one of my nail art brushes with Zoya Jules:

I then filled in some of the “petals” with Zoya Cola:
OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Zoya Jules, Zoya Cola

I filled in the rest of the “petals” with Orly Gumdrop:

Lastly, the middle dot with essie No More Film:

Topped off with HK Girl fast dry top coat.

Outside, flash:

Outside, no flash, natural light:

It didn’t come out quite perfect, but I do like how it ended up. What do you think? What would you have done differently? 

I hope you are all ready for a great weekend! I will see you tomorrow for Day 6 of the OMD Rather Awesome Challenge! As always,
