Girly-Girl Challenge Day 4 Inspired by the Runway

So it's day 4 of the girl girl challenge, today's was inspired by the runway, which game me an excuse to ogle dresses I can never afford and to be honest would probably look ridiculous in :)
I looked at a few trends and "orange" called out to me, I haven't worn orange since Halloween, I actually like how it clashes with everything and really stands out. I found this dress in Erin Fetherston's spring line and thought it was awesome.


I used two coats of Zoya Jancyn. I then added dots of glue to my accent fingers, let the glue turn clear and become tacky and then put foil on them. I use craft foil as its cheap and comes in so many colours.


I'll be honest and say I wanted to do lines of metallic orange but couldn't get the foil to stick uniformly. So I had to make do with an irregular pattern but I really liked the way it came out. I put on a thin layer of topcoat to protect the foil.

The challenge is hosted by Lindsey of Neverland Nail Blog and here is a list of the other girls doing it.

  3. That looks so good! Is there a certain kind of foil you get? I've been thinking of trying the ones from Dollar Nail Art...

    1. The foil I got is just normal "craft" stuff, not specifically for nails so imagine the dollar nail art foil would be perfect, looks like they have a great selection of colours too
