31DC2013 Day 21: Inspired by a Color

If there were one vague prompt in the 31 Day Challenge, this would be it. What does inspired by a color mean? Whatever the heck you want it to, apparently. Some people do manicures based around a color. I've seen Sarah from Chalkboard Nails draw inspiration from the name of a polish, and that's where I ended up. Originally I was thinking of just focusing on a favorite color. But when I was going through my polishes I came across Sephora by OPI It's Totally Karma, and I knew I had it.

I originally wanted to make it very colorful but then decided it would make the design less readable. So I ended up with a very green manicure (so unlike me!). I do like how bold it is.

I feel like some imaginary person has been twisting my arm, forcing me to try things that are beyond my capabilities. Obviously, there is no such person. It's just that this challenge makes me come up with these ideas that I don't want to let go of. So I try something ridiculous that I've never tried before. I have to tell you though, I had fun wearing these. It's like I felt they would help good things come to me :)

What I used:
Sephora by OPI It's Totally Karma
It's So Easy Stripe Rite in black
Seche Vite top coat

Did you feel the good vibes from this post?

I won't be posting Sunday, so I will have Day 22 and 23 for you on Monday!


  1. I love this one! Very well done. Did you do it on the other hand, too?

    1. No, I was going to practice on my right hand first but I just forgot and went straight to my left hand. I wish I had remembered!

  2. These are great! so creative :) I think its always good when you push yourself into trying new ideas! :)


I love to hear your comments!
