It's Day 25! Today's theme is a fun one: Inspired By Fashion
Let's get right to it!
I found my inspiration in the dress that Kristen Stewart wore to the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
I kinda wish I owned this dress. Haha. It's hot!
I'm really pleased with how this translated onto my nails!
Part of me wishes I did something Betsey Johnson inspired (like last year) but hey, I pretty much do Betsey-like things all the time, so it's nice to push myself into a different type of design.
I did this design using DIY nail decals, otherwise known as nail polish on scotch tape cut into shapes.
Yes, you read right - you paint some strips of scotch tape, and once they are dry, you cut off pieces and stick them to your nails! It is so simple, and a great way to get crisp lines and shapes.
I did this sort of thing once before, seen here - and check out the step-by-step as seen on The Beauty Department.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep is the silver base for my manicure. This is such an awesome silver polish, it covers in one coat, and I find the Insta-Dri brush to be ridiculously easy to work with. One coat and no clean up necessary? Yes please!
The colors I used for my "decals" are:
Color Club - Almost Famous
Color Club - Where's The Soiree?
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Trouble Maker
Don't forget a thick coat (or two) of topcoat to seal in your decals so they don't peel off.
I love the contrast of the metallic and the cremes, and the random shapes really pop!
Which nail is your favorite? I think the index is my fave.
6 more days to go! Yikes! Almost there!
