{Street Style Inspired Nail Art} "Pop It"

I may look to runways for fashion inspiration but I get my dose of fashion aspiration from the streets. Paying attention to street style fashion is the easiest and most functional way to connect with what's trending. Lately, I've been fascinated with one particular street style look-juxtaposing sporty and polished with a black and white color palette. I love the idea of wearing a baseball cap with a tailored jacket. It's unexpected, interesting, and keeps the style conversation going.

As someone obsessed with pops of color, I had to incorporate some hot pink into my black and white sporty chic look. I also decided to match my nails to the outfit as I just received a salon range of some of Sally Hansen's most fabulous nail colors. Although I blinged my nails with different nail strips in keeping with the black and white theme, the interesting nail art shapes really popped against the outfit.

This was the first time I tried the Sally Hansen strips and really love the effortless process and long-lasting results. The strips quickly conform to my nail shape and it's super easy to peel off the excess. The sheer fact that I can master them means they're dummy proof!
