Midweek Manicure // Divine Dotwork

Divine Dotwork Scratch Nail Wraps

More nail wraps! This time, I added a little embellishment by attaching some gold nail studs. These are the Divine Dotwork wraps from Scratch, designed by a tattoo artist. I love them – I’m kind of a sucker for black and white nail art.

Black and White Nail Wraps

After applying the wraps, I added a variety of gold nail studs (from born pretty store), on each nail. I painted both thumb nails gold (using the color Savoy by Julep) and kept them free of studs.

Inspiration

Color Inspiration + A NYFW Sweepstakes!

If you could come up with your own custom nail polish color, what would it be? A color that you love, or one that you think represents you? Would your custom nail polish color be full of sparkle and glitter? Matte or shimmery? When the question was posed to me by Julep (along with the opportunity to enter a great sweepstakes – more on that later), I had a color in mind almost instantaneously. If I were to create my own custom nail color, it would be a creamy, muted orange.

Wedding Bouquet

I’d say the color would be inspired by the peachy-blush tones of the English roses in my wedding bouquet, but it’s more than that. I just love muted peachy tones. I gravitate toward them. Most of the clothes hanging in my closet are peach, blush colored, beige or some other neutral tone. I love that the colors are warm and inviting, compliment my skin tone, and that they’re easy to dress up or accessorize. So, it’s natural that I would have incorporated these tones into the flowers and decor of my wedding, and that if I could create my own custom polish color, it would be inspired by my everyday color story.

With all of this in mind, I created a little color inspiration board of my own, from which I pulled out a custom color swatch.

Sort of a peach sherbet color. In keeping with the theme for Julep’s polish colors, I think I’d name my custom color Corinne.

If you could create your own custom polish color, what would it be?
