31DC2013 Day 25: Inspired by Fashion

Hi guys!

I'm playing catch up again with the challenge. I just haven't been inspired much lately, but I try my best not to be a quitter! Lol! I was a bit stumped to find inspiration for this mani. I never paid much attention in fashion world. I'm a t-shirt and jeans gal, and not even into cute purses or shoes (don't hate me :p). So you can see how this can be a problem. Then I saw a friend's post, who also participated on 31 Day Challenge, she was inspired by shoes she saw in a magazine. That kind of open up my mind and think I don't have to look for inspiration just from dresses! And I found this handbags from Kate Spade to use as my inspiration.

The base color I used here is OPI My Vampire Is Buff (shocker!). For the squares, I used Zoya Darcy, and a mixed of OPI Skull & Glossbones and China Glaze Liquid Leather to get the grey shades, since I don't own any polish with that color. I used a small detail brush and freehanded the squares. I added a yellow bow on my index, trying to imitate the one on the bag.

What do you think of it? I think the bag is nice ;)



  1. I love this! The bag and mani would be so adorable together too!
