My brother had a friend who in High School had a pair of grey stone washed blue jean looking parachute pants that had paint splattered all over them. That was the inspiration for this mani. What is your 80's mani inspiration?
I used the sugar spun technique for this. Which I have to say I am not very good at, but this is only my second attempt at doing sugar spun nails. You can see that I traveled from my pinky towards my thumb. I started to get it to work around my middle finger.

I will be guested over at My Boyfriend Hates Makeup. Lacey has a busy few months ahead of her. So when she asked for help from her fellow bloggers, I offered to do a few guest blogs to help her out. I will be doing one a month from now till May. This is my January guest blog, and today is Winnie the Pooh Day.
I love the way the crimson color of the red of the Velvet Lounge bursts through the copperish purple of the Ferguson Crest Syrah.
I used Velvet Lounge on four of my fingers as a base coat, and Ferguson Crest Syrah on my accent ring finger. I then used striping tape to make the burst and topped it with Ferguson Crest Syrah. Once that was most of the way I removed the striping tape. I used Velvet Lounge to tip my ring finger.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Julep describes this as a spring lilac creme, and I have to say I agree with this. The color coverage is awesome. Almost full coverage in one coat, with only minor touch ups needed. This makes a wonderful alternative to white as a base color if you are using any kind of purple or pastels. I do wish the color came out better, in the pictures it looks more pink. :(
