Hey there! Today I have my first post for September's Nail Challenge Collaborative Inspired by a Garment theme. I don't love this prompt to be honest. For some reason whenever I have this theme my mind draws a blank. However I do love argyle anything - sweaters, socks, shirts, etc. so I decided to do argyle nails for my first look.
I found an argyle sweater that I really love on amazon.com and used that as my inspiration. You can see the sweater here. I used Zoya August and Jordan as my main colors and did the lines with an L.A. Colors Art Deco white striper. I thought this mani would like great with a matte topcoat. I used Butter London Matte Finish as my topcoat and I love how it turned out. I will show you what this looks like with a glossy topcoat below.
Here you can see this look with a shiny topcoat. I used Tonic Topper which is my favorite quick dry topcoat. I rarely use matte topcoats, but do prefer this look matte compared to glossy. What do you think?
This was my first time ever trying argyle nails which is odd because of how much I love argyle. I was a big preppy in high school! I think I will do argyle nails again in the future. There are so many different color combos you can do!
Have your done any manis inspired by a garment? What garments inspired your nail art?
