Mani Mondays

This weeks theme

“Fierce, Strong & Focused.

It’s Monday… the start of a new week. A better week as I like to look at it. So, as I was thinking and thinking about a color… I asked myself… Which color should I flaunt today? What mood am i in? It’s not really sunny.. am i in a cheery mood? Hmmmm…. decisions…

Let’s REWIND it … about 24hrs.

It’s Sunday night around 11pm and I’m laying in bed … supposed to be sleeping but I just couldn’t,  I decided … Let me catch up on some of my missed episodes of Mob Wives. Now it’s around 12:30am & I still wasn’t tired. Rather than diving into another nail project I figured, I’ll just watch one more show… & it just so happens that I had the highly anticipated Rachel Zoe Project Series on my DVR!

Let me start by saying how much I LOVE Rachel Zoe! She’s such a talented & amazing designer/stylist! So of course I was ecstatic when they started off the series with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. Every time I see a NY runway show on tv I have a flashback of my NYC days.. when i designed textiles & lived on the upper east side. It all hits so close to home. I even had the opportunity to attend a runway show which was an experience I will never forget.

So.. back to Rachel Zoe.. she covered a bunch of amazing runway shows… Oscar De La Renta, Michael Kors, Marchesa to name a few. Then they wrapped it all up with the successful debut of her Spring Collection.

I felt so inspired after watching her that I decided I wanted more from my nails then just a solid color this week.

My inspiration for this design was a spear.

So here’s what I came up with.
