Inspired by a color is kind of a tricky prompt. Like, cmon, what does that even really mean? Last year I took it to mean "be inspired by the name of a polish color" and I stuck with that same interpretation this year.
I was inspired by the color Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze.
Does this design look familiar to you guys? If you've been following me for a while, it might remind you of my Valentine's Day kiss print manicure. I just changed the colors up a bit to make them more seasonally appropriate. I also used a nail art brush this time instead of a dotting tool, which was infinitely easier and allowed me to make the kisses smaller. I'm not sure why I didn't just use a brush last time...
The base here is obviously China Glaze Kalahari Kiss. The kisses were freehanded on using OPI Schnapps Out of It, Zoya Cola, theBalm Orange You Glad You're Not Blue, China Glaze Desert Sun, and Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red.
I think these colors look so Thanksgiving-y together. Like fall leaves instead of kisses. :)
I've said it before and I'll probably say it a million times more -- I love full nail patterns. I think they just look so graphic and beautiful!
