Undone (The Sweater Song) Nail Art

If you want to destroy my sweater, hold this thread as I walk away...
Today's 31 Day Challenge prompt is "inspired by a song." I had a lot of ideas knocking around in my brain, including stormclouds with male symbols raining out of them (It's Raining Men - get it?), but ended up going with a literal representation of the lyrics in Weezer's Undone - The Sweater Song. I did a minimal, sketchy style, and though I wasn't crazy about it at first, it's really started to grow on me!

Nail polishes used:
Contrary Polish Purple Egg
Floss Gloss Moon Baby
Essie Matte About You

I used two coats of Purple Egg as the base, and then freehanded on the sketchy sweater and thread with a small nail art brush and Moon Baby. I added a layer of topcoat to seal and protect, and then finished with a layer of matte topcoat. How freaking divine is Purple Egg mattified? I'm baaaasically obsessed.

See how I've been inspired by songs in the past:


  1. fantastic manicure, love it

  2. Great idea for the manicure! Its so simple but cute at the same time.

  3. Great mani. I love the eggplant purple base, It looks great matted out. Your mani is great and it represents the song perfectly.

  4. These are adorable!

  5. that song is stuck in my head. :P

  6. I think it's cute! and I may be a little biased since I love that song :) but who doesn't?

  7. This is really cool, and I love the mattified effect :).
