Nail Art Weekly Project - Week 1

Hello everyone!

Danni over at Gingerbread Smiles came up with the Nail Art Weekly Project where there will be a theme each week for the next 5 weeks and the bloggers taking part have to come up with a nail design related to the theme. For week 1 the theme is an outfit or item of clothing and I picked this top that I bought from New Look about a year ago. As soon as I saw all the shapes and patterns I knew I wanted to do some nail art based on this :)

The polishes I used were Barry M Grey, Barry M Black, Barry M Dragon Fruit and Rimmel Golden Wonder. For the topcoat I used Orly Top 2 Bottom. I also used striping tape for all the straight lines and a dotting tool for the leopard print.

I was slightly disappointed with my index finger - striping tape hates me lol! I get impatient waiting for my nails to dry, put the striping tape over it and then when I peel it off it takes the polish under it off as well! I then end up having to paint the lines back in freehand and they end up wobbly! Overall though, I do like this design, especially the leopard print as I've never actually done it before!

Go check out everyone else's designs by searching #nailartweeklyproject on Twitter!

Let me know what you think and I'll be back soon with some more nail-related stuff!
