Because I'm leaving tomorrow to Helsinki for the I Love Me fair, I thought I should post my second Finnish(able) Nail Art Challenge manicure today. I already did my Familar Pattern nails, so it was time for Something Borrowed. Here's what I came up with:
And what did I borrow? Well, I wanted to borrow some nail art ideas and it was clear from the beginning that I would borrow that from on of my challenge buddies, Katjamaria or Nerdic Nails. But then I figured out I should really borrow something from both of them and turn that into one manicure! Usually when I borrow someone's nail art idea, I end up doing quite similar manicure, so I thought this would be a good way to at least do something little bit different than the original manicures.
Here's my inspiration:
I borrowed my color scheme from Mirka's grey-yellow-white-black manicure and also the idea for skittlette with these colors. I actually even used some of the excactly same polishes that Mirka had used for her manicure. Then I also borrowed the nail art idea from Katjamaria's #ablecaw14 neon nails for my two accent nails.
I did two coats of Essie Maximillian Strasse Her on my thumb and index nails, two coats of OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana on my pinky nails and two coats of Essie Blanc on my middle and ring finger nails. Then I taped the ones that had Blanc on them with NailVinyls and painted the sections with both Maximillian and Cope-acabana as well as with Essie Licorice.
Unfortunately I managed to smudge the design a bit with my top coat so it's not as neat as I would have wanted it to be. Still I liked these nails very much and especially the color scheme! Yellow is a bit difficult color for me on nails, but it really works well with these colors!
And here's everything I used:
Sally Hansen Nail Rehab*
Essie Blanc 2 coats
Essie Maximillian Strasse Her* 2 coats
OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana 2 coats
Color Club Top Coat
