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

Happy Friday/Saturday, All! Hopefully everyone has fabulous plans for the weekend :) 

Tonight I've got the latest in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Inspired by a Color! A little over a month ago I bought the entire OPI Euro Centrale collection and immediately fell madly in love with My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours. This polish has made an appearance in quite a few of my manis over the past month and it is definitely one of my favorites to incorporate into my nail art. It only seemed fitting that I use this polish as my inspiration for tonight. 

I decided to go with an oversized and simplified paisley print on each nail. I'm not sure what it is about orange, but my brain immediately jumps to paisley print - weird! The base of this is OPI's My Vampire is Buff (one of these day's I'm just going to use the acronym and you'll know what I mean ;) MVIB!) and I used a tiny detail brush to hand paint in the paisley shape. 
I've got a general question for you all! Lately I've been getting a lot of questions about the tools and brushes that I use regularly - would anyone be interested in a general post/FAQ about my tools and whatnot? I don't know how much insight I can add to the subject as a lot of nail bloggers have already done stuff like this, but I'd be happy to share what I use if anyone is curious. Feel free to add any other questions you'd like answered as well! 

Just a friendly reminder, my giveaway of the custom GG Couture Nail polish ends Sunday so be sure to head over and enter! 

Happy Polishing :)
