Inspired By Fashion

Hey there!

I'm super duper excited about today's post!  I am starting my Hobby Polish Bloggers challenge for the month of May.  Yay!!  I am especially excited because I have decided to do these in order which means fashion comes first :) 

Mad Men, Inspired By Fashion, Inspired by Joan Holloway, cobalt, blue, red, white, China Glaze, Hey Sailor, Love & Beauty Cobalt, nails, nail art, nail design, mani

 I am so very much in love with the show Mad Men and Joan Holloway (played by the lovely Christina Hendricks) is my favorite character.  She's sassy and her outfits are to die for!

 Colors Used: Love & Beauty - Cobalt, China Glaze - Hey Sailor, Sally Hansen - White On

I started with 2 coats of Cobalt and then used my striping brush to paint on the square and outline.  I could have taped them off for straighter line but... I really have not patience for dry time!  I've had to force myself to take pictures right after I'm done painting on the off chance that I might smudge my nails from impatience lol.


I top coated it and called it a night :)

I can't wait to see what the other ladies have in store!  I'm planning on completing this challenge these first 2 weeks in May so that there wont be any conflicts/confusion with my other May challenge.  I've got lots of brain-storming to do lol...

Until next time!
