Faux Prada Nails

Good morning everyone! Last week my dad was reading the paper in the morning as usual and he pulled out a section for me talking about nail art! The Calgary Herald featured a manicure from Prada's Fall/Winter 2012 look that I tried to recreate. I'm thinking of sending an email to the author of the article and offering to do a tutorial for the website or something - I wonder if there's any interest in that.
 I know I don't have the same almond nails as the model so mine looks a little different, personally I like it better but that's probably because I'm accustomed to square nails.
 I used quite a few colours to recreate this look: OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh, OPI Funky Dunkey, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, OPI Red Lights Ahead...Where?, OPI Ski Teal We Drop, OPI Call Me Gwen-ever mixed with China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, and Quo by ORLY Filthy Rich.
I surprised myself with quite liking how this turned out, and it honestly wasn't that hard to do.

Where do you often get inspiration for your manicures?
