Girly Girl Challenge - Challenge #4 - Inspired by fashion

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Sorry for the belated post - we have company this week and had a big 'Welcome Home' party for our guest, and now I'm sick! Ah well, on to the post.
Today's post is another mani Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge on Something About Everything and Manis By Moore. This challenge is to do a mani inspired by fashion.
Now you if you've been reading for very long on this little blog 'o mine, you know I have absolutely no fashion sense whatsoever. No, seriously, I don't. I'm sitting in yoga pants, an oversized construction shirt of my hubbys and a zip up hoody. Oh and my toes don't match my nails.- it's sickly wear I tell ya.
Anywho - on with the post.
Actually, hang on, I have a confession - ok another confession. I went to the nail salon yesterday to get a manicure. Mostly because as much as I try to keep my cuticles and the skin along the side of my nails moisturized, they get pretty gnarly at times, and I don't like to cut them myself. So off I went to my local nail salon - which I have visited before for pink & whites - and I wasn't disappointed in their skill. Since I was there, I decided on a color too, and save me some time on this challenge. Hopefully it's not totally cheating! I picked OPI's That's Berry Daring, and my tech applied two coats and a top coat.
Then, on with my end of the mani - I stamped in Barry M's silver metallic with A51 stamping plate, and topped it off with one coat of Posche top coat. My design was inspired by Marchesa Spring 2013 Ready to Wear collection. Here is the website that I took the picture from.
