Fashion Friday: Thakoon

If you're not familiar with Fashion Fridays collaboration - 
Fashionblogger & my bff Cassi from The Granny Treatment chooses a fashion collection,
then I choose which designs I want to recreate as a mani!

This week we have decided to go with Thakoon's Fall 2012 Runway Collection.
I did this using a combination of nail polish and acrylic paint with matte, "sand" and gloss finishes.

Here are the swatches of what I used for inspiration:

If you have any suggestions for a collection you'd like to see transformed into nail art, let me know!
