You guys. Ashley Nell Tipton won Project Runway. First of all, I should say that I am obsessed with Project Runway. Now that we got that out of the way – OMG. It’s freaking awesome that she won. She’s a plus size designer – which means that she’s designing FOR ME. It is so exciting that somebody who designs for people who look like me has won national media recognition. I can’t even tell you how excited I am. I will be the first in line to buy anything she produces.
It’s also Digital Dozen week. The theme of this week’s challenge is to be inspired by Pinterest. This is easy peasy for me, since I am also obsessed with Pinterest. Have I ever told you that I basically planned my wedding on Pinterest? It’s true. I used Pinterest for nail art, but also for lots of other stuff that inspires me: recipes, crafts, art, you name it.
I picked this flower crown nail art, inspired by Mr Candiipants – and made it my tribute to Ashley Nell Tipton’s gorgeous purple lace design and all of her flower crowns! I made it more of a fall palette, but wouldn’t this look amazing in a true purple? What better way to pay tribute than with Project Runway nail art?
The base color on the solid nails is Germani-cure by OPI, a lovely burgundy with a pretty color shift. I used Loreal Wishful Pinking for the base of the accent nails, and then created the floral crown with the OPI and some acrylic paints. I topped it off with my Salon Perfect top coat.
And of course, be sure to check out what the other Digital Dozen girls have come up with!
