31DC2013 Day 25

Hello all!  Originally I was writing this post before I left for work this morning, but realized I just didn't have enough time.  Then I said I would do it when I got home. know how life goes, last night my husband's phone fell off its clip in the pouring rain and got fried.  We had to go to the phone store after I got home to get a new phone.  Now its 9:30 and I am finishing this post with wet nails for tomorrow!  Thats how it goes! ;)

Todays theme is inspired by fashion.  I was super excited for this challenge, I went searching for some inspiration and found it tough to get inspired by anything!  Uh-oh...I looked at tons of photos from this years fashion shows and found a lot of the clothes to be lacking in any graphic action.  I was looking for something that had a print, but found it hard to find.  May be I didnt find the right websites?  Either way, I did finally come across one designer whose clothes I felt I could mimick. Vivienne Tam is the designer I stumbled upon.  Her designs are very geometric which is what I was looking for.  I attempted to recreate one of the looks on my thumb, but it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped.  So, on the rest of my nails I just free handed it.  My co-workers who have been keeping up on my daily nails seemed to like them, so thats good!  I used Zoya Purity, Zoya Jacqueline, OPI MonSooner or Later, and China Glaze Liquid Leather.  I used Zoya Jacqueline as my base, and have to be honest when I went to use it I was not too excited.  I have used this polish a number of times recently and each time have had difficulty with the application and coverage of this polish.  I just don't like the finish, it seems rough.  I think I need a new nude.  This challenge has definitely helped me realize that there are a number of colors I do not own or need more varieties of!


  1. Love the color combo (: Great choices (:

  2. Thank you! I would love to try this kind of combo and colors again when the challenge is over using tape or something to make the lines better!
