My Post-It Inspired Mani

I can't deny it... I find ideas for nail art/color combos in the most random places. The mani I did last night is no exception! My inspiration... Post-It's!! Yup! 
"The little yellow things with the stick 'um on the back." Sorry, but I just had to throw in the 'Romy & Michele' reference... :)

Anyway... Friday at work (I work at a doctor's office), I was getting patient charts ready for Monday. I used one of the neon Post-It's on my desk & a hot pink highlighter to make myself this reminder note:

After staring at it for a few minutes while making phone calls... I really began to like the color combo! I had to try to re-create it in mani-form!! :)

After my regular base coat, I used 2 coats of Jesse's Girl JulieG as the base color.

I thought the bright, cream coral was a great match to the neon, peachy Post-It! :)

I didn't know what design I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to use OPI Dim Sum Plum as the "pink highlighter" color. :)

I finally decided to stamp one of the flower patterns from Bundle Monster image plate BM12.

Add a SV top coat... and done!! I think it turned out pretty nice & good for summer! :)

  1. That's super cute! I love subtle color combos like this one that you can't really see unless your looking for it.. Adds a nice little flavor to your nails. :)
