31 Day Challenge, Day 26-Inspired by a pattern

Today was so much easier than I thought it would be!  Thank goodness for the tattoo paper that I discovered yesterday.  I would have had to do this pattern by hand otherwise, because I had no backup ideas.  The pattern I chose is the famous wallpaper from 221B Baker Street.  BBC Sherlock, of course, not some weird variant with a female Watson.  (Why in the world would anyone watch that version when they could watch Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman?)

I put down a few coats of Essie Blanc as a background color to make sure there would be enough contrast, and made a triangle accent nail with it, but that was all of the polish work today (besides by base coat and top coat).

I like these.  I probably should have added a yellow smiley for a nerdier touch but I was scared that I would mess them up, and they really did look nice.  They didn’t really match the camo mani that I still had on my left hand (couldn’t bring myself to take it off), but I didn’t mind wearing both around today.

Considering how tough tomorrow’s going to be, I am so glad that I took the easier route today.  Because tomorrow is…inspired by artwork.  Yay. (note the sarcasm)
