31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Day 21: Inspired by a color


We've reached the 'inspired by...' prompts, which means we're two thirds through with the challenge! These last couple prompts tend to be the ones I dread, because I don't watch enough movies or read enough books to actually do manicures based on one of them. Nevertheless, it needs to be done, so I will try and find a way to make it work.

Today's prompt is 'Inspired by a color' and I chose London Town by Sundown by Catrice.
It's a beautiful shimmery dark red and I used it as part of the gradient. It ended up showing through on my index finger only though.



Here's what on my fingers:
Index: London Eye (this one was hard to freehand!)
Middle: London Tower
Ring: Big Ben (I couldn't fit all of it onto my nail :/)
Pinky: British Museum

I hard a hard time picking out which sights to paint, so I kinda ended up picking random ones.

Bonus picture! Here's what the gradient looked like on its own. I would definitely wear this on its own! (Make sure to click on the picture to magnify it!)






Colors used:
miss captain - essence (muted blue-grey)
Dynamite - Formula X (dark yellow, slightly orange at times)
Sunbaker - butter London (deep muted orange)
London Town at Sundown - Catrice (shimmery dark red)
licorice - essie (black)
