Happy Monday and Happy Martin Luther King Day everyone! One of the things that I look forward to at the begining of a new year is replacing all of my stationary. I love starting fresh with a new planner, notebook and calendar. I find it very cleansing. I could spend hours in a stationary store! On New Year's Eve I picked up two new notebooks from Target. One for the blog and one for personal. The blog one is my favorite though - it has my favorite color trio - black, gold and white. I loved the abstract pattern so much that I decided I wanted it on my nails!
Winstonia Berry Fine Liner Brush
Hit the Bottle Spun Gold and Black as Knight
Sinful Colors Snow Me White
KBShimmer Clearly on Top
This design was super easy to do: I started with two thin coats of Snow Me White. I then used my liner brush to add the black and gold lines or "slashes" with Spun Gold and Black as Knight. I then freehanded the thick black line on my ring finger using Willa and finished with Clearly on Top.
I find patterns so inspiring. You can be literal or just use them as a jumping off point for your own creation. My second planner is very different from this one: green and floral and feminine. I will probably do some nail art inspired by it as well it's so pretty!
