*Purchased By Me
I’m sure you guys all know that us nail polish bloggers are constantly being inspired by something, be it a fellow polish blogger’s work, a particular design on clothes, stationery et cetera… well, today I have a mani which was inspired/copied from work/ play / polish, namely her Couture de Minnie design done for O.P.I here.
Hers are so fantastically gorgeous…and I actually wanted to use her photo in a “Nailed It” meme for the blog, but I wasn’t sure of her policies and whether she’ll mind so…yeah!
*update: the meme is at the end! (: *
Anyways here’s my nail art.
I did not have the Couture de Minnie collection as I decided not to purchase it, so I borrowed Bethanie’s polishes(SHE HAS A HUGE RANGE OF PINKS AND REDS AND THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT!)
You can see the difference in designs, such as me going for a (albeit failed) eiffel tower on a semi-naked nail and adding some pink glitter over.
- Revlon Black Lingerie
- O.P.I Feeling Hot Hot Hot!
- O.P.I If You Moust You Moust
- O.P.I I’m Not Really A Waitress
- H&M Pink Glitter
- H&M White (for the dots)
- Couleur Inc Pavo 110
- O.P.I Jinx
- black uniball Signo 0.38 pen
- white uniball Signo pen
Actually one of my main reasons for doing this nail art was inspired by how her thumb nail was done with a textured polish! I decided to try it out using a dotting tool…and this is what I ended up with LOL!
I did the white stripes using my gel pen as I did not have striping tape/was not comfortable with a striper brush.
Only my index finger is matte-d with Etude House Matte Top Coat.
Well…I guess the end result turned out both cute and hilarious…and I…
What do you guys think?
