Around the World Challenge: Paris

Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to travel to paris and see the Eiffel tower lit up at night...

So it was a given that I would use the eiffel tower as inspiration for today's destination in the Around the World Challenge: Paris!

I started with a base of Barielle Alli's Lace Cover Up on all nails. Then using a Jordana striper polish in white I created the stripes on all nails except for the accent. The Eiffel tower was painted using Finger Paints Black Expressionism and a nail art brush. 

As you can see I started off with a shiny top coat (as seen above) but then decided to mattify it with Essie Matte About You. (to much of my frustration, I'm still getting the occasional white flecks from the matte top coat - I will be trying some new ones in the near future).

Hopefully one of these days I will get to travel there and see it for myself... and I hear love-lock bridge is pretty cute ;)

Don't forget to check out the other entries in the challenge over at Guilty As Charged... I'm sure there will be an eiffel tower or two :P
