As with the other years that I've done the challenge, I've chosen to interpret "inspired by a color" as "inspired by a specific polish color's name." I've never fully understood what "inspired by a color" means, especially when we've already done colors in the first part of the challenge.
I was brainstorming with my friend Kristi and she suggested that I do cactus nail art based on my Pretty and Polished collaboration polish, Me, Myself, and Cacti. I loved the idea of doing cactus nail art but realized that I had a polish that would work even better -- Color Club Wild Cactus.
The cacti are painted freehand using Wild Cactus over a gradient base of China Glaze Highlight of My Summer and Zoya Purity.
Did you know that the Saguaro cactus blossom is the state flower here in Arizona? And that harming a Saguaro is illegal by state law? We have these beautiful cacti all over the place. They grow extremely tall and have varying numbers of arms in different shapes. I decided to show a more classic Saguaro silhouette.
