Jeans nails for day 25 of the #31DC2014: Inspired by Fashion

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is inspired by fashion. I decided to go with one fashion item which so far has stood the test of time and is showing no signs of going out of style… jeans!Painted Fingertips | Jeans nails for day 25 of the #31DC2014 - inspired by fashionI saw this post on More Nail Polish which used an actual pair of jeans to stamp the denim grain. I wanted to try it but it didn’t really work out for me. I wanted to use my Tip Top I Luv Denim duo as these were definitely my best denim colours. I started out with the darker colour and tried to stamp with the lighter one. I think it would have worked if I’d used a different polish for stamping but all I ended up with was the sparkle from the polish scattered everywhere. No matter, it was still a good base for my jeans!

I used Tip Top Baby Cheeks for the open part above the zip and Gold Digger for the stitching, then added a matte top coat and some studs to finish it off.

Last year I did some high heels nails with a base in one of my favourite colours.
