#31DC2014 - Day 26 - Inspired by a PATTERN

Hullo! It's late here and I'm tired, so let's get right to it! Day 26--inspired by a pattern. I chose to paint my family's tartan :)

Indoors with flash (and my scarf of the same pattern) :)

I used three Revlon polishes for the tartan pattern: Revlon Red, Royal (blue), and Posh (green). I used the flat brush and the striper from this set from Born Pretty Store for this. It looks really wonky up close--this is actually the first time I've used that long striper!--but from a normal distance it looks really cool I think :D

The Scottish flag is the same blue, Royal, and then Orly Pointe Blanche for the cross. I should have used acrylic paint. Would have had neater lines. But oh well. All sealed in with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Outdoors in indirect sun
Same as above. I didn't have much sun for these photos. Which is fitting, since there isn't much sun in Scotland either ;)

This is another one I really wish I could wear longer--I love the look and would be proud to rock it for a few days! But, the challenge marches on. See you tomorrow for more! xoxo


  1. The red and green almost remind me of some really pretty Christmas wrap I had awhile back! Love it!

  2. Thank you! Yes, it does have a Christmasy feel. I wear the kilt-skirt and scarf together sometime during the winter (or I did, before I moved to the land of sunshine) and it was always very seasonal. It is the tartan of my people!
