Inspired by Fashion: Denim Nails featuring Zoya Marina

I put on two coats of Zoya Marina, from the Fall Mirrors collection, with the intent of it being the base for my Gravity's Rainbow Shape Shifter mani, but then I realized how much it looked like denim to me, so I tried Copy That, Copy Cat's denim tutorial to make this instead!

After a generous coating of Essie Matte About You, I used a random white nail striper and a paper towel to make it look stonewashed. I added the white stitch marks and gold glitter to look like a rivet on my index finger at the last moment, because I wasn't sure if it screamed denim or not. Now I think it sort of screams "sloppy" and "lol I don't understand proportions", but I like the general denim-y-ness of it and will probably try this again sometime! Seems like a great way to make an older blue mani fresh again.

Don't forget that several other ladies are better at time management and completed this challenge already! Bec at Lacquer Dreams, Julia at Julia Loves Nails, Linda at Nail Polish Enthusiast, Alyssa at Fancy Phalanges and Jenna at The Key to Jennasis, Kirsten at Geeky Owl and April at Munia's Nails
