New31DC: Day 22 - Inspired by a Fabric


Hi there lovelies!  Today we are moving on to the really challenging final week of the New31DC!  Our first day this week is Inspired by a Fabric.  I chose to recreate the pattern from my bath towel from IKEA, which I love.


Here is my towel... the colors are a bit off but it is a nice purple color with aqua paisley on it.


I used 3 thin coats of China Glaze Creative Fantasy as the base for this nail art.  I just love this color, it is such a nice rich purple, and jelly finishes are one of my favorites.


I freehanded the paisley pattern on with a small nail art brush and a dotting tool, using China Glaze Aquadelic.  I really love these two colors together!


I hope you guys are enjoying me showing you more freehand nail art... I have been working really hard to improve the quality of nail art that I share with you!  I really feel like my skills have been improving from pushing myself a bit, and I hope I can continue with this after the challenge is over.

What fabrics have inspired you?
