February Nail Art Challenge- Inspired by a Tutorial

Happy Presidents Day to my American girls! Today, day 7 of the challenge is “Inspired by a Tutorial.” I decided to incorporate our flag colors into my design today. 🙂


I decided on the Fan Brush Stripped method for my nail art today. My tutorial comes from this YouTube clip by SimpleNailArtDesigns.

For my colors I started with a base of OPI Cajun Shrimp. I painted two coats and allowed that to dry. I then followed the steps in the tutorial and used Essie Where’s My Chauffeur for my blue and Color Club French Tip for my white.


ImageI really love how this turned out! It was fun and clean up wasn’t too bad. The color combinations you could create are endless.

I know this picture looks horrible (almost like a finger mug shot hahaha) but I think my middle finger kind of resembles the American flag. Do you see it too, or am I just crazy? lol

Where’s My Chauffeur?

Welcome to week 2 of my colored weeks challenge! My little guy, Jayden, picked out the color for this week. Of course he chose his favorite of all colors. Blue! So I’ll be providing you with a week full of blue :).

I was in Target yesterday and ran into their Essie display which had the new holiday colors. I’d seen a swatch recently of Where’s My Chauffeur? and knew I had to have it. I’m a sucker for turquoise. 

Check out how pretty this is!




There are a few more polishes I want to get from this collection too. I’m loving the Holiday collections!
