31 Day Nail Challenge: Inspired by Fashion

When looking for some inspiration for this fashion inspired manicure, I came across this photo on eBay.
First of all, I want this dress!  Second of all, great colors, great design and not too hard to copy!  I started off with two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Posh Plum.  This base is a bit darker than the dress but you get the idea.  It's a great deep magentaish color with blue undertones and the most subtle lovely shimmer.  Drool!
Next, I stamped using Sally Hansen Color Quick in Gold Chrome.  I used Bundle Monster Image Plate BM323 to replicate the gorgeous gold belt of this dress.  I tried my best to stamp the design across the center to keep the same look as the dress.
The image I chose wasn't an exact match for the belt but I think it gives the same feel.  I think this looks great and I was really impressed with how well this image stamped.  Look at all the fine little details!  I'm really impressed with these new plates from Bundle Monster!


  1. Love your blog! How long does the Sally Hansen last without chipping?

    1. It depends. Sometimes it will chip in a day and sometimes after four days it will still look brand new. Usually I change my polish every two days even if it isn't chipped.
