It's another "inspired by" post today, this time by Polished Cousins. I loved the blogfest mani, especially the dotty and checker board nails, so I gave the, a go. I'm not too fond on the finished mani, I think I should have used a more opaque black polish, as it didn't really work for the dots.
I did base colours of Barry M Block Orange, and Emily De Molly Dark Crystal. The Blue is Barry M Cyan Blue, and I used the other two colours for the details. I topped it all off with China Glaze Fast Forward.
If I had better tape placement and Dark Crystal was a bit more opaque I think I would have loved the outcome, I do love the colour combo though.
