Just kidding - don't run away because I'm weird! I apologize. I'll get back on topic.
Anywho, I have been thinking for the past few weeks about what color I want to be "inspired by" for this post, and yeah. It turns out that planning ahead doesn't lend itself to the whole "inspiration" thing. As I was worrying about my lack of planning, I made a polish purchase that would make everything alright.
I bought OPI's My Private Jet. While my bottle isn't one of the HTF original formulas, I still found myself smitten with the espresso brown polish and its subtle glitter glory. It's a polish I never looked at twice before that fateful visit to the Galleria. I put the polish on at the beginning of the week, and I haven't been able to take it off since. I am in love, and if it's wrong I don't want to be right!!! Rather than take off My Private Jet, I was inspired to embrace it and present a manicure inspired by the color BROWN.
|BROWN: Can you dig it?|
For this manicure, I wore OPI's My Private Jet as the base. I then used my dotting tools to create a half-arch dot effect with OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Sonia Kashuk Tauped, and Sonia Kashuk Khaki Shorts.
I was inspired by a simple tutorial that I had bookmarked last month. I love how simple, and graceful the look is.
With the color combination, I can't help but think of coffee, chocolate, and Fall.
I hope that you like this mani half as much as I do. It's a very different color-scheme than I am used to, but I'm a firm believer that sometimes you have to shake it up and try something new. With that in mind, I am going to check out what the other challengers have to offer... perhaps inspiration will find me again!
