Day 25 - Inspired by Fashion

Fashion is not and never was something that I chase, obsess over or even follow much, but I think hearing about the Missoni collection for Target was something that even I couldn't avoid. This by no means implies that I made any attempts to purchase things from that collection. Honestly, the thought never even crossed my mind. I did however admire a few of the pieces online, particularly their color combinations and patterns.

In the end, it was a photo of luggage that inspired my manicure for today's challenge. I started out with two coats of Color Club Nomadic in Nude as my base. Then, using Bundle Monster plate BM-201, I stamped the zigzag pattern, which in my opinion is a great match for the Missoni pattern. The colors used include Color Club Chelsea Girl (blue), Color Club Wham! Pow! (orange) and Barielle Tight Knit (brown)...




Below is a photo of the luggage that inspired me. As you can see, I wasn't able to get all of the colors from the inspiration piece into my manicure. A little dash of black would have been nice to really make it pop, but the stamp method does not allow for such precision (or maybe I'm just not good enough?). I still love how it turned out and no one said it had to be an exact copy... :D


I'd love to know what you think! :)

Thanks for looking!

  1. It's a lot more subtle than your inspiration, but I really like it! It must have been a lot of work using different colors at once, but you did a great job, it's so neat ^^
