Tie-spiration Gold and Green

Hello, Fireflies!


Time for another round of Tie-spiration, where hubby picks a tie, and I make a mani!

Those of you who have Nabi polish readily available are lucky.  I had to order mine from eBay! I love all the holos I've tried, even though they are scattered, they are pretty pigmented.  This one is Nabi Gold.

I used some tape to create a checkerboard pattern with Above The Curve Anona, an olive-golden-green.

Maybelline Bold Gold is my fave gold for stamping, and it does pretty well for nail art, too.

Add a little black for contrast and some topcoat!

So, what do you think? Does it look like his tie?  Have you ever taken makeup/fashion/nailart inspiration from your significant other's wardrobe?

  2. That's clever, I've never taken inspiration from Mike's clothes, lol!!! Although, in my defense, he wears a uniform and it's not very exciting LOL! Cute mani!

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
