Polish Party April Challenge: Inspired By Another PP Member

It's that exciting time of the month again - Polish Party!

This month's theme is 'Inspired By Another PP Member'. I'd been hoping for this theme to win the vote for a few months now, so I was very happy when it finally won!

The hard part was deciding whose nail art to take inspiration from because there's so many designs that I wanted to try. In the end I picked my favourite design from a few different members and randomly picked one. The one I picked out was Madison from Fundamentally Flawless' Ombre Stripes which is a design I love. You all must know by now that I love 'simple yet effective' designs - I think that will have to be my catch phrase, I say it far too often!

So, here's my attempt in the top picture and Madison's original design underneath.




This design is really easy to do and is so eye-catching!




I'm glad I picked this design out because looking through the comments on Madison's post I came across this...




... and I still hadn't tried it!





I was trying to think of how I could change it a bit as the theme is 'Inspired By' not 'Copy', but I couldn't think of anything except for the colour that wouldn't have made the design completely different. What would you have done? I couldn't decide between a pink or purple colour scheme but settled for pink as I have a huge range of shades to choose from.

I used all Models Own polishes; Cerise Shine, Sun Hat, and Pink Veneer, as well as their white Artistix nail pen.





See Madison's original post here, along with her tutorial on how to create this look.

I hope you like it - I do, I'm so glad I finally got round to trying it out! I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone else's 'Inspired By' nail art, you can check them out using the links below :)
