Project Runway Challenge - Week 5

I liked a lot of the black dresses in week 5. But that is difficult to translate to nail art. This lead me to consider using Buffi's outfit as my inspiration, but I really didn't want to do a zebra mani after my Golden Cow mani. From this, my current mani was born!

I took the bright pink color from Buffi's outfit (center below) and mixed it with Dmitry's (right below) for a fun hybrid.

I took the criss-cross design from Dmytri's black dress (Michael Koors said he should have done it in a red or a brighter color for more effect) and put it over a bright pink like Buffi's sheer overlay. I thought about doing a coral color like she did, but my coral polishes weren't speaking to me.

Like usual, I really couldn't muster up the desire to do all those stripes with my non-dominant hand, so I switched it up a bit. 

 As a side note, I thought I'd include this picture for fun. Can you tell which of these is not like the other?

That's right... I FORGOT a stripe. I didn't even notice it until I was in class the next day.
