It's All About Me7:12 PM
So this week's Project Runway episode is the classic "Make Your Own Pattern" challenge. I actually really like this challenge in general and I LOVED it for this season because freaking no one works with prints!! It's so annoying! It's like every week is a funeral on this darn show because everything is so monochromatic. This week that didn't change much despite the pattern making. Most of the patterns were black and white. I LOVED Sonjia's pattern although it reminded me a little bit of elephants. I also really loved this one which was Melissa's. It was definitely outside her box and in a very good way. I think one of the things I love most about this dress is that it has a really great silhouette and it would be amazing in a simple black or solid color as well as the pattern. I also think it looks very easy to dress down for the office by throwing a sweater on top, or to dress up at night. Perfection. Of course, it didn't win. Dmytri won and while I thought his jacket was innovative and fun I didn't think that it really went with the pattern challenge that well. I mean, yes his pattern was cool and his jacket showcased that. HOWEVER, he essentially made a simple shirt with the pattern and then went right back to doing what he always does with solid black. ARGH! At any rate...here are the nails:
I used Wet and Wild White On for the base and then stamped on a pattern with butterLONDON Pillarbox Red. I tried to randomize the pattern a bit but unfortunately I didn't do it in the right order and so it just looks like my pinky and index are going rogue! Still I liked the effect. I wish the stamp hadn't dragged in places too. I was experimenting with different top coats! Back to Seche I go!! Gunnar went home this episode and I was sad to see him go but let's be honest, his outfit was a throwaway. :( Sad times. Did you watch this week? Which was your favorite design?
