Laid-Back NEW31DC Day 22 - Inspired By Fabric

I was inspired today by a sweater I came across while I was doing the wash. I thought it would be neat to try to do a cable knit pattern on my nails. I thought for sure I would go for something patterned, but when I picked up this sweater, I knew I had to give it a try instead.

For this mani, I started off with a solid base of NYC Midtown. I love love love this pink! It's perfect. Then, I used essie sure shot and Confetti Wedding White to create the cabled pattern and shading. After I finished my cables, I used Zoya Pippa to add the infamous horse and rider, or as my husband and his friend call it, the "kitty". Do not ask me why they call it that - it's something that only cool people know about, and I am not cool - hehe. Anyways, it's not my favorite mani ever, but hey, I tried. I do like how my "kitty" turned out though, just wish I could have made it a bit smaller.

Here is a picture of the sweater I was inspired by.

And here, is NYC Midtown all by itself. Yay!

Well, be sure to check out what everyone else did, and I will see you again for day 23 - inspired by nature! Day 22
