Today's post is for the 3rd #clairestelle8june prompt, "inspired by fashion". In case you weren't aware, this month the #clairestelle8challenge on instagram is being sponsored by picture polish, who will pick a winner and award them a $150 shopping spree on their website. Pretty cool!
Side note: I broke a nail while rock hunting (boohoo!) so I'm rocking a shorter mani now.
So for today's mani, I did a search on pinterest until I found a fashion look that inspired me. Here is my inspiration piece:
It's been a little while since I've done a mani inspired by fashion, but doing this I was reminded how much fun it is to do. There are so many great ideas in the fashion world that translate easily to nails!
For this mani, I first painted my pointer/middle fingers with a nude polish. My ring and pinky got a bright orange to match the skirt.
To get the look of the stripe down the middle of her shirt, I decided to piece together a couple of images on my silicone mat. I started by stamping the diagonal parallel lines on this MoYou London "Holy Shapes 05" plate, then painting the outside of the lines with my Sinful Colors "Navy I Do" polish.
The pattern on my pinky and ring fingers comes from this MoYou London plate from the Mexico collection. It seemed like the best match to the skirt that I had in my collection.
