This challenge lasts a month and includes eight different days of nail art. Instead of trying to keep up with a new nail design each day, we have two each week. Day Four is Inspired by the Runway: What is your favorite trend this season? Show us your stylish mani!
I do not really follow trends, especially the runway. I generally buy and wear what I find pretty or flattering. So I searched through pictures of the runway trends for Spring 2012. I actually love the patterns. I almost did color blocking in bold shades of blue and orange, which seems popular this year. But I went instead with pastels inspired by the above design by Luca Luca.
I used two coats of Essence You Belong to Me then waited for it to dry. Once dry, I taped off one finger at a time and painted on a coat of Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet. I immediately peeled the tape off. Easy color blocking. My nails kind of remind me of mismatched plastic Easter eggs.
Essence Colour & Go retail for $1 at Ulta, H-E-B, and Fred Meyer. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear retails for $2-3 at Walgreens, Walmart, Riteaid, Target, and Ulta.
