China Glaze Dare To Wear

Swagger Jackin' NailGurl

Thanks for joining me for another installment of Swagger Jackin'! Who am I blatantly copying today? NailGurl NYC of course! The first time I stumbled upon her Instagram feed I had to follow her. Then, I went to her site. I. fell. in. love. Soon after I found this post; which brings us to another episode of Swagger Jackin'.

What did I use? I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White--quick side note: have you seen SC new spring collex yet? Love!--Followed by stripes made with Illamasqua Cameo.

For the strawberry I used an unnamed red nail art pen I bought at Urban Outfitters and Knocked Up Nails 18K Gold(crowning) for the seeds.

For the chocolate I mixed OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys and China Glaze Mahogany Magic.

As for the leaves, I used a combination of Dare to Wear DJ Mix, Wet n Wild Fast Dry SaGreena the Teenage Witch, and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

Not photographed, some studs I bought on ebay and
*cough* get 10% off you Born Pretty Store purchase using code NCL91 at checkout *cough*

Was my execution perfect? No, but with practice I'm sure it'll get better!

Because there isn't a chance in hell I could duplicate this design using my non-dominant hand I did this!
Psst... I may finally be planning a tutorial for this look.
