Creative musings in bright colors


Day 29 of the OMD Challenge is “fashion.” Now, I know next to nothing about fashion but i DO remember seeing shoes a few years back (last year??) that stuck in my memory. I decided to try (and most likely fail) at recreating these shoes on my nails.


The inspiration were these ridiculous contraptions by Alexander McQueen:


I started with a shiny nude base (nameless polish, very streaky, but surprisingly pretty color!) and applied two shades of blue, one gold, and a bit of black using the saran wrap method.


I then painted on the “negative space” in darker blue. I think maybe I should have gone for a different color, but I just don’t know what!



  • Nude: unknown
  • Gold: Maybelline – Bold Gold
  • Blue: Zoya – Rocky and Yummy
  • Dark blue: Sinful Colors – Endless Blue
  • Black: Julie G – Black Sheep

So, what do you think? Look anything at all like the shoes? I think I’m going to stay away from fashion!
