I found my inspiration for today's manicure by browsing the blog of a clothing website I frequent to see when the winner of a contest would be announced. I definitely wasn't there looking for nail art ideas, but one found me none the less. As soon as I saw the picture below, I instantly saw it in terms of nail polish colors (I can't be the only nail blogger who does this!). A background of Zoya Caitlin with various metallics layered in thin, 'dry brush' style stripes.

The base is three coats of Zoya Caitlin, and I used the following polishes to add the stripes: Icing's Chrome Green, Icing's Chrome Copper, Pure Ice Busted, China Glaze Admire, China Glaze Harmony, Orly Luxe, and BK Crystal Sand. The entire manicure is topped off with a coat of Poshe. I wish I was a little more patient and skilled so that I could have done thinner and softer stripes, but practice makes perfect. This was overall really easy nail art and it made for a sparkly yet subtle manicure.
