Inspired by a pattern. I was kind of stumped on this one. I spent so much of my time last night doing those Beauty and the Beach nails that I didn't leave a lot of time for myself to do pattern nails. I decided to do checkerboard nails.
These are freehanded checkers that I did with my medium striper.
I had done one full nail and part of a second when I had to get up from my manicure station for a bit. I realized when I sat back down that I really liked the way that it looked with just a partial pattern, and chose to do the rest of my nails the same way. Think of my full patterned nail here as an accent! :)
The base of this manicure is Essence The Dawn is Broken. The pink is Zoya Renee, which I have a terrible history with as far as getting it to photograph correctly. It's kind of a neon pink and it photographs tomato red on my camera. I did my best to color correct here but it's probably not 100%.
