31DC2013 Day 26 - Inspired by a Pattern

Hi All! I'm continuing today with Day 26 of the 31 day challenge. The task for today was to create a manicure inspired by a pattern. I have long been wanting to stamp the houndstooth pattern, but somehow don't seem to get around to actually following through. I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and finally make it happen. Polished by KPT Fall-O-You for me is a perfect shade for the task. It reminds me of a great Fall jacket and I think the houndstooth pattern suits it well. Now if I could actually find a jacket that goes from charcoal gray a the top and gently transitions to and army or olive green at the bottom, I'd be sold...

To create this manicure, I started out with a base of Polished by KPT Fall-O-You, a thermal beauty which I showed swatches of a couple of days ago. I then stamped the houndstooth pattern using KleanColor Black and Cheeky plate CH13. The pattern was just a few millimeters short for my nails, so I ended up using a small detail brush and black acrylic paint to complete the pattern near my cuticles. I also touched up the areas which didn't transfer properly during stamping to give it a really crisp look.

This is the cold state of the base polish...

In transition...

All warm and cozy...

I'd love to know what you think of this!

Thanks for looking!
