31dc2012 - day 22

The theme for day 22 is Inspired By A Song.
Let me just start off by saying that this is not my best effort. Haha.

The song I chose to use as my inspiration is Domino by Jessie J.

This song is my jam and I have been wanting to do nails inspired by it (moreso the video) for a long time! However I did not have enough time to incorporate all the ideas I had so I had to go with a more simple design.

It's pretty easy to see where the inspiration of my index and middle fingers came from, and the other nails are inspired by an awesome wall in the video.
(I wanted to do each nail a different pattern from the video but that would have taken forever! So I settled on my favorite one.)

This image is from Konad m60. I hadn't used it before but now I'm really diggin' it!

I used only three polishes to create this look:
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Whirlwind White
Konad Special Black (I used this for the freehand domino detail too but I don't recommend using special polish for nail art. I was just being lazy.)
NOX Twilight - Crush

Like I said, not my best effort. Still pretty cute though!
I wish I'd had more time to go for a more complicated design but hey, I'll just have to try for something cooler tomorrow!


  1. so pretty!!! i love the contrast of white on other nails... makes this mani stand out!!

  2. wooww i love the stamping !!!! and the domino nails are really funny =)

  3. these are cool! I have a music inspired nail polish contest currently going on Instagram. This song inspired about 3 or 4 entries!! Nice job!!
