In a post over at The Nailasaurus last week, Sammy did a cute colour-blocking mani; she also linked to Adobe Kuler, as a source of colour inspiration. Let's just say, I was hooked for a solid twenty minutes scrolling through all the amazing colour combinations that I would never have thought up by myself!
Obviously, today's nail art is inspired by one such colour combination. Specifically, this one. I also decided to grab inspiration from Sammy's colour-blocked design, because my head was too busy swimming with colours to be able to think coherently about making a design up, (as well as loving her design, of course!)
Although my polishes don't match the inspiration exactly, these are the colours that it made me think of when I saw it. The polishes I used are mainly LaCC (you know how much I love those for nail art!). I've used LaCC 1981 (salmon-nude), 1997 (periwinkle), and 1969 (green), as well as LVX Fantom (white).
It's been quite a while wince I've done a tape mani, I tend to avoid them because of the ages waiting between drying and taping. However in this case, I think it was totally worth the patience, because I love it! I'll definitely be using Adobe Kuler as a source of inspiration in the future as well, it's so useful. What do you think? :)
