inspired by my simple little pleasures- purple lattice


 When I first saw this from My Simple Little Pleasures, I added it to my inspiration folder..... that was  1 year and 8 months ago! ( I got alot of great ideas in that folder ) Anyhoo - I thought today I should try it and it turned out lovely = however, there is no way I could pull it off using a thin artists brush, so I opted for a stripe polish.

I chose subtly contrasting colours, LA Colors Stripe polish in Sea Foam Green and Sinful Colors Mint Apple. I added only 1 coat of Top Coat ~ the LA Colors striping polish was on the thick side, but I the think the texture of it goes great with the design. Next time I try this I will definitly use more contrasting colours.


HERE is the link to her blog post, and HERE is link to the youtube tutorial video. I also have to mention that she has 18 million upload views on all of her videos - how amazing is that!!!!!!!

Very nice! You're smart to keep a folder of inspirations--I somehow think I'll remember where I saw something and of course I don't. :)
