Wow, I really can't believe we're on the last leg of the challenge already! This month has completely flown by and I've had so much fun doing the challenge so far. Here's to hoping the last 10 days will be as smooth sailing as the rest.I think this is when the challenge starts to get a bit tricky!
I think 'Inspired by a color' is a very vague prompt and I never really know where to start looking for inspiration. So, as you do, I just googled 'colours' and ended up reading a list of colour names to see if anything jumped out at me. The colour that did was Cornflower Blue.
I wasn't confident that I even owned a cornflower blue polish but I found China Glaze Fade Into Hue and knew it was meant to be! So today's nail art is inspired the Cornflower on a cornflower blue base. I daren't try to replicate the flower exactly - far too many angles for me to get wrong - so I decided on a more abstract take on the flower.
I used China Glaze Fade Into Hue as my base colour and let that dry.
Next I freehanded on a sort of star burst design using a long thin nail art brush with an unnamed royal blue Miss Sporty polish near the bas of my nails. When that was dry, I painted on a smaller star burst with Barry M Prickly Pear.
When everything was dry, I topped it off with two coats of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat.
