Twinsie Tuesday: Odd Inspiration

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Today's Twinsie Tuesday is odd inspiration. I didn't really have anything odd to be inspired by on hand so I went with a makeup bag. It has a faux leather outside with a diamond shape design all over it. Inside, it has a burgundy red lining to it. Let's see how I interpreted that onto the nails.

Glossy and Suede Diamond Quilted Striping Tape Nail Art

I used OPI From A to Z-urich on all the nails. I applied a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat to  make it extra glossy. When that's dry, I used striping tape to recreate the diamond pattern. I used Julep Nora on top and while the polish was still wet, I peeled the tape off.

I didn't apply a top coat at the end since I wanted the contrast of the glossy and suede finish to stand out on the nails. I think it turned out great for something I created on the spot. I know my inspiration wasn't the most oddest thing but I've never done a design inspired by something I own before until now. What do you think?
