#52weeknailchallenge - week 10: Plaid

Hi everyone!

This week's prompt is plaid and the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of plaid is the blanket my parents used when I was a little girl: soft and fuzzy and with large squares of color. My manicure is an attempt to translate my memory into nail polish. The only thing different is the sparkly accent that wasn't in the original blanket, but I felt my nails needed a little extra ;)

I could only do the ninth prompt of the Weekly Nail Art Challenge after Friday as neon isn't really appreciated much at work. Sure, I can pull it off during summer when there's a day without meetings with customers, but that was not the case last week so the neons I picked had to wait until the weekend. After kissing hubby goodbye and running back inside where it was warm instead of the polar temperatures we're having at the moment, I sat down and had some fun with an eye searing neon and its pastel sister.
