Girly-Girl Challenge: Day 4, Inspired by the Runway

OPI Roadhouse Blues, Essie Braziliant

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to the Girly-Girl Nail Art Challenge!!  Today is Day 4, which requires us all to draw inspiration from our favorite fashion trends.

I don't really follow fashion as closely as I probably should... I did some googling for this challenge of Fashion Week 2012.  I found a dress that inspired me from the Marc by Marc Jacobs show.

This trend is color blocking, and I used scotch tape to achieve my nail look.

I was actual quite in love with this mani... this is one of my favorites that I have ever done!  I think I will be trying to use other color blocking in fashion to inspire future nail designs.

I started off with 2 coats of Essie Braziliant, then did a coat of quick dry top coat.  Once they were dry enough to withstand taping I taped the off center square and did one coat of OPI Roadhouse Blues.
