Digital Dozen does Pinterest: Distressed Herringbone

Purchased by me

Distressed Herringbone | The Dalai Lama's Nails

When the Digital Dozen celebrated its members in the challenge where we recreated each other’s nail art, I saw and pinned a look by Lady Maid Nails that I thought was just too freaking cool. I really loved the stamp she used – it’s herringbone, but the lines aren’t as even and deathly straight as most herringbone patterns. Plus, she paired it with this cool distressed look underneath. I wanted to make this look fall-y, and so I opted for a solid background. But looking at her original version makes me wish I kept the distressed background, too!

Although this was not one of those OMG super detailed nail art designs, I’ve really enjoyed wearing this! For some reason, I almost never wear red polish. Something about the fall makes me want to wear RED. This is an old Sation polish, and for the life of me I can’t remember the name. Ack sorry, friends! Anyways, I used white acrylic paint to make my uneven herringbone. Distressed Herringbone | The Dalai Lama's Nails

I guess I’ve realized it’s not summer anymore, with all these fall looks!
