Playing with Polish--Citrus Print Manicure

This season, beautiful citrus shades are everywhere.  I love citrus and have a soft spot for anything citrus.  It should be no surprise to you then that Stella McCartney's iconic citrus print from Spring/Summer 2011 caught my attention the first moment I saw it.

I decided to create a less detailed spinoff of the print for my nails.  First I painted my nails with 2 coats of Zoya Purity to create the white background.  Then I pulled ALL of the citrus shades I owned and decided which shades to use.  In the end, I used all Zoya polishes.  I chose Zoya Elise, Paz, Coraline, Kate, and Belle and painted round shapes piled at the tips of my nails.  I finished it off with a few leaves of Zoya Edyta.  Check out the final result:
I apologize for the shadows & poor lighting:-\
I think it turned out pretty well, especially since I was in a bit of a rush--oops;)  If I try this again, I will hopefully have more time and I can add more details and incorporate more deep pinks (grapefruit) and yellows (lemon).  Overall, I'm pretty happy with the result.

What do you think of this fashion inspired manicure?

  2. This design reminds me of the dishes my grandparents had when I was a kid. It had oranges and peaches and other fruits on it. I really like your nails like this!
