Week 19: Inspired by a Pattern

formul8edphrase week 19

Sorry for this post being so late! I’m still visiting my mother, and while I did this mani on Sunday, I just haven’t gotten around to posting. Something about being on vacation makes me so lazy…

While I think the idea behind this theme was to model nail art after a textile pattern, I was still limited by only having a handful of colors with me. Instead, I modeled my manicure after a mani done by the very talented Lucie at Lucy’s Stash. The original post on Lucy’s Stash can be found here. It looks much better on her longer nails!

I started with a base of plain white, Sally Hansen’s X-treme Wear White On. I then dotted the pattern with SquareHue Happy Creme and Honor, and a-England’s Galahad.

Even my mom liked this one! I wore it for several days before removing it to try out Zoya’s Hazel. I’m headed home soon, where I have boxes from SquareHue and new subscription service Bondi NYC, and a bunch of fall Zoyas, so I’ll have plenty of swatching to do. πŸ˜€

Next week: latest trends! Good thing I just ordered four Zoya PixieDusts, huh?
