Coach patchwork handbag. I love the way the colors for this purse go together. It's bright, cheerful, and makes me smile whenever I look at it.
For this manicure I started by painting my nails with a basecoat (Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Base & Top Coat), followed by one coat of Zoya Snow White and then one coat of Finger Paints Art Nouv-Yellow. I used a layer of white below the yellow because it makes this color 'pop' more than if I'd just painted the yellow over my basecoat.
Using tape to section off the area I wanted to keep yellow, I painted Zoya Jancyn over the rest of the nail. Following the same procedure, I next used Zoya Areej and finally Zoya America. I wanted to use Zoya Tamsen (one of my untrieds) instead of America but the color difference wasn't noticeable over Areej.
Since these colors are all so...warm I wanted to distinguish them from one another. To do this I added black "stitching" with a Kiss Nail Artist Fine Art Pen in Black. Here's a before and after:
My boyfriend said that my nails reminded him of the movie A Nightmare Before Christmas but I think my nails are much too colorful to be compared to such a dark film.

I'm pretty bummed that I have to take it off after only a day and a half of wear but I must look "business professional" for a big meeting and these nails don't fit that look.
