Pillow-Inspired Manicure?

Hey everyone!

Today I have for you some more nail art. Yaaaay!

I asked on Twitter if someone could suggest any nail art ideas for me, and my lovely friend Heather of Let Beauty Blossom told me to do a design inspired by her pillow. I was a little hesitant, but after clicking the photo, I fell in love with the colors and the Moroccan-like design.

Heather's pillow:

So I set out to create this design. I had mostly the right colors (China Glaze Kalahari Kiss would have been nice, but I passed on that one and am going back to buy it!). Here's what I came up with:

I'm sure you can point out the sections that inspired each nail (if you feel like it). Not my most perfect work, but I like it =] Here's what I used:

A dotting tool and nail art brush
Reds: OPI Conquistadorable Color and Bullish on OPI
Oranges: Sally Hansen Sun Kissed and China Glaze Desert Sun
Browns: OPI San Tan-tonio and Essie Little Brown Dress
Gold: A very old Avon Striping Polish
Whitish: Champagne Stripe Rite topped with a no-name sheer white

And my elusive right hand. Thumb to pinky the shades are OPI Conquistadorable Color, Sally Hansen Sun Kissed, China Glaze Desert Sun, OPI CC, and OPI San Tan-tonio. I planned on adding some art to my right hand, but time got away from me and I wanted to get the pictures before the sun set. Besides, I kind of like having an 'accent hand.' Or is that just me making excuses for being lazy?

So that's it for now. Have you ever found inspiration from household items? Special thanks to Heather for the suggestion! Go follow her! And if anyone else has any nail art inspiration for me, please share!

Thanks for reading,
