Marimekko inspired nail art

Source
For this Nail Art Sunday Lela has chosen a fun theme for us to be inspired by; Marimekko. And if not all of you know about them, Marimekko is a finish design company with graphical patterns which can be found in fabrics such as curtains, pillowcases but also porcelain etc.

I googled and found a bunch of pillows which I liked and felt inspired by. The nail art I did ended up being more of a free interpretation rather than an exact copy. I've done dots on most nails and then I've done some needle dragging on some accents nails. I really like the color combo of black, white and yellow together and I like the end result. :)

Let's have a look;





Kleancolor - Neon Yellow
Nordic Cap - NP13
Nordic Cap - NP12

What do you think? Do you like the color combo? Have all my readers heard about Marimekko?
