Street Style Inspired Nail Art

Hey guys!  I've been getting into fashion recently and fell in love with the New York street style.  It's full of mixed matched patterns, geometric shapes, and a smorgasbord of eclectic pieces that just work together some how.  So tonight I have some nail art to share that's inspired by street style.  I originally did this for the Sally Hansen's I Heart Nail Art contest during the Street Style month.  I didn't end up winning that month, unfortunately, but I did have fun finding some inspiration and coming up with this design.

 The THUMB has made an appearance! *gasp* *faint* *convulse* lol ok I'm done...

Polishes Used:
Sally Hansen Mint Sprint
Sally Hansen Coral Reef
Sally Hansen White On
Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue

What I did (instructions but not really lol):
On my thumb, index, and pinkie fingers I applied two coats of Mint Sprint then I drew various dots and geometric shapes with a dotting tool.  On my middle and ring fingers I did an acid wash method.  I applied two coats of Thinking of Blue, applied top coat, and applied one coat of White On.  Once that had a chance to set I got q-tip soaked in nail polish remover and rubbed it across my nail until I got the desired look of acid wash denim.

It's definitely something different for me, and I like it.  I'm planning on doing a video tutorial sometime in the future so I'll be sure to add that once I do it!

Where do you get your nail art inspiration from?  I love looking at clothing stores and fabric for inspiration.

Thanks for reading,
