Designer Inspiration: Can you guess who?

After my epic fail with the half moons, I was inspired by a certain designer to try out a new nail trend.  Funnily enough, this is the reverse half moon, or the reverse reverse French manicure. Check it out:

Personally, I'm on the fence if I like this.  I think if I reversed the colors (light base, darker overlay) this may have looked less like I just spent the day digging in the dirt.  In fact, the designer in question used a light lavender as the base with a dark plum over it.  But since I had just swatched the base color here and wore it for 2 days, I was in the mood to play around with it.

So here's the question: who's the designer that inspired this?
Anyone who answers this correctly will get an extra 4 entries into my 150 Follower Holiday Giveaway.

For an extra 1 entry per color, can you identify what polishes I used in this mani? (Max 2)
Hint: check my stash.

Please leave your guesses in the comments section and I'll let you know tomorrow what the answers are.  I'm hoping there will be a bunch of your ladies who know the answer and can get the extra entries!


  1. I like this is a lot! Very pretty main green-my guess is that it's Revlon Minted? I'm not sure what the darker green is. And I think it was Jason Wu that did the reverse half moon manis for his runway show.

  2. I like the look, though i think i would like the darker color on top and the light color at the cuticle : )
