Striped With Sophistication

I loooove sales. Love them. I love the thrill, the hunt, the attack. Why is this relevant, you ask? Well, let me tell you! Recently, I received an email in my Inbox like I'm sure several of you did, informing me of a Surprise Sale at Kate Spade. I love Kate Spade. I love the bright colors, the patterns, the simplicity. How could I pass up just a little peek? I couldn't, of course. I mean, for all intents and purposes, I'm broke. (I need to tell myself this so I can manage to save money—something that's hard for me!) :) Anyway, I did sneak a little peek, and while my (Kate Spade) wallet can sigh a little sigh of relief because I didn't buy anything, I came away from the website with some inspiration for a few new nail art ideas! :) Some are color combinations, some are patterns, some just made something else click in my head that was completely unrelated. So you're thinking, 'Hey Melissa...get to the point.' Right? OK, OK! Sheesh! :-D

Today's nail art was actually a color combination that I was inspired by. I thought it looked classy and elegant, but it had that awesome pop of color that I love so damn much! Well anywhoo- here ya go:

I used:

Topcoat - Seche Vite


  1. Beautiful.Miss talking to you by email!

  2. I did almost the same colour combination for todays post!! I was sooo excited to see yours. I always am but it was like I was doing what one of the big girls are doing(minus the extreme talent and the fact that I'm probably older than you).
    If it's not too much to ask could you maybe take a look? It would mean the world.

  3. Don't like the coulors, otherwise, fab! Oxox Sweden

  4. I can understand why you thought it looked classy, black/taupe/a color usually does, and so do this, but I can´t help thinking of pokemon at the same time :D

  5. This design kinda looks like a pencil. But I love it.


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
