Nail Art: #31DC2014 Day 25 Fashion Inspired

I am back at it today with some more nail art for the #31DC2014 challenge! I had to have self imposed "work appropriate" nails today, so I started off the day with a base of China Glaze Foie Gras from the Hunger Games Collection. That has to be one of my favorite collections of all time. No joke, go check it out. Foie Gras is a really nice brown/taupe creme. In some lights it is completely brown, in others it looks grey or taupe. I love colors that change like that. The challenge prompt for today is fashion inspired, and I could totally do some beautiful crazy things for that, but I am feeling the simple plaid today. It may be because it is officially fall or because it is raining here, but I love a good plaid.






I used a simple black and white striper to paint the lines and little slash lines as well. I always see those hash lines on plaid, but never on plaid nails. This design was screaming for a matte top coat, so I finished it off with my Wet n Wild matte, which I love. I find it works the best for an inexpensive brand and dries quickly. This design is simple, but I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Foie Gras has been sitting in my helmer without being worn for too long, I think I need to pull it back out after seeing this, too cute!

  14. Thank you! I just made it up as I went. I was going to go find inspiration, but I got lazy. So, good things come from laziness sometimes!
