Nail Art: Euro Mod

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Yesterday my husband and I stuffed ourselves silly for an event called Savor the Pearl, which is a fundraiser benefiting cystic fibrosis. We had one of those passport things where you go around to several places getting "tastes" and stamps. You have a week to do it, but since we don't live in the Pearl District in Portland, we went up for one day of binge eating. Oh my goodness, I still feel like I am recovering, but it was fantastic. I wore these nails out for it. I'm calling them Euro Mod because the look Mod, but I also inadvertently used all OPI polishes from their Euro Centrale Collection, which was one of my favorites! I used a base of You're Such a Budapest, which is the lilac/blue color, then I free hand painted vertical stripes of Vant to Bite My Neck? which is the deep purple color and then I free hand painted horizontal stripes with a deep blue I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw. Finally I finished it with a large dot and smaller dots on each nail. Every nail is slightly different and I love how it looks so simple but complicated at the same time.








I hope you enjoyed this post, I am thinking about doing a tutorial on it, so let me know if you would like to see one! I really love these colors together. I think it is awesome how I grabbed these without realizing they were in the same collection until I started doing my nails. Love it! I hope you like it too and that your Monday is going well so far! See you back here tomorrow for Tri Polish Tuesday!

  6. These are awesome! You're right, they look complicated but when you break it down not so much so a tutorial would be great. Euro Centrale was one of the best OPI collections, I'm always wearing Eurso Euro.
