31dc2014 Day 25 - Inspired by Fashion

We are officially in the final week of the 31 day challenge and, I have to say, I'm going to be sad when it's over. I've had a lot of fun and ended up with some designs that I've really loved. And I've done really well keeping up with posting. I only fell behind once and caught up the very next day. I hope I can keep the streak going for the home stretch of the challenge.

Today's prompt is inspired by fashion. I didn't plan this but I ended up doing another Betsey Johnson inspired design. I stumbled across her Fall 2014 and fell in love. She is by far my favorite designer and I just adore her. I love her use of colors, patterns, textures, and accessories.

It was really tough to choose my inspiration but this is the outfit I ultimately chose. I'm an accessories girl and that's what grabbed my attention in this photo. Specifically, the socks, shoes, and handbag. That's what I based my design on.

For the leopard print nails, I used Sally Hansen Blue Me Away as the base and the spots are NYC Tudor City Teal and Sally Hansen Black Out. The striped nails used a lot of polishes: Sally Hansen Black Out, White On, and Blue Me Away, OPI A Roll in the Hague and Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Butter London Trout Pout, and Julep Kennedy.


  1. wowww!! Your nails look 100% much better than the girl's outfit of course!! You are an artist!

    1. Thank you! Her outfit is all over the place, isn't it? For some reason I still love it...not that I would EVER wear it, ha ha!
