Inspiration From a Sweater
One of my co-workers showed up in a really cute sweater a couple of weeks ago and I loved the color combination. So I decided I needed to do a manicure inspired by it.
In person the sweater was more turquoise than the picture leads you to believe, so I picked Essie Where's My Chauffer and then stamped with Konad Special Red. I also used some small loose red heart glitter to give some sparkle and a a different texture on one nail.
For my stamps I used Betina B-10 and Winstonia W102.
A view of my thumb.
I really like how the color look together. I think it is a bit quirky an a step out of your traditional valentine look. I am really happy with how this came out. It is not exactly like the sweater, but you can definitely see the inspiration.
My right hand turned out really good too. I kind of like how the stamp placed on ring finger better. You can see the heart design more clearly and not as abstract.
