Inspired By

Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well, I sure am. Recently I thought of a manicure that was posted a long time ago on my blog for a bugs nail art contest. Michèle did this gorgeous manicure that was inspired by a Monarch butterfly, you know, the butterflies that are all gorgeous and royal. I keep seeing this picture on the internet, it jumps up all the time and I decided to do one as well.

I picked a red as my base, OPI Friar, Friar, Pants on Fire! The outlines are made with a black striper and the white dots are made with H&M Love at First Sight and my friend the dotting tool. I added some sweet baby pearls to the dots, one per nail, and that was it.

This nail art was really a pain in the ass because I do not have that much patience. I'm also a neat freak so the lines have to be perrrrrrfect or I'll be bummed. Can you imagine how I sat there?! It wasn't a pretty sight, that's for sure.

Do you have any favourite nail inspirations? By that I mean sites (f.e. Tumblr or Wah), persons, idols, photos? I like to look at different kinds of fabrics to make up a pattern but unfortunately it has never worked out that well. I hope it will work out once, I love those kind of inspirations.

Take care and thanks for visiting!
