31 DAY CHALLENGE -- Day 21: Inspired By A Color

Hey everyone! We're officially into the home stretch: the "Inspired By" section of the challenge! Today is Day 21, which means INSPIRED BY A COLOR NAILS.

A little over a week ago, Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails did one of the most original manis I've seen in a while. It's so simple, it's genius: Mint Chocolate Chip Nails! I loved it so much.. so when I was digging through my stash, waiting to be inspired by a color and I ran across ChG For Audrey... It was the first thing that came to my mind and I instantly knew I wanted to recreate it!

1 flawless coat of For Audrey provided the perfect mint-colored ice cream base, and the "chocolate chips" are Wet N Wild's Tangled in My Web. Excuse the side of my ring finger... I was a little too hasty taking pictures and my polish wasn't dry so it smudged. Oops.

Simple. Perfect. I love it!

...And that's the story of the mani that inspired my color and the color that inspired my mani!

Also, be sure to check out my guest post featuring Zoya Savita over at The Nail Polish Enthusiast today! Savita is one of my all-time favorite purples, so I saved its swatch for a super special occasion. And Amanda is so great! Many thanks to her for letting me invade her blog! ♥
