Today's Color Cues post is inspired by a fabric square from a quilt my sister made. I was talking to her in her room when I noticed the pattern, and I instantly loved the mix of yellow-green with the pinks and lavender. It also helped that the shapes in the pattern were fairly organic and I thought it would transfer into an interesting nail design. I was especially inspired by the dots in dots effect by the flowers, and could imagine an accent nail covered in dots within dots. Maybe a water marble with the purple and pinks in the color scheme? Maybe hand painted teardrop shapes just as they appear in the fabric itself? Who knows. A wealth of ideas came to me for nail art when I was sitting on her bed with this quilt, so i figured the only proper thing to do was to come and share it with my lovely readers.
The polishes I chose to match with this scheme were OPI Houston We Have A Purple, Essie French Affair, MAC Little Girl Type, and Ginger + Liz Welcome To My Jungle. I picked WTMJ because I liked how the olive green base had the same mustard yellow-green shimmer running through it, and I thought it would add an interesting finish to the mix.
What are your opinions on today's color scheme? Did the fabric inspire you in the same way it did me? Do you think you could work these colors into nail art? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!
