I am really struggling to keep on point with this challenge. The longer I am off the Orencia the more sick I feel. I will have a post on this later.

Today’s prompt is “Inspired by a Song”. Well, the one song I hear on the radio, all.the.time. (including 3 stations at the same time) is Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off”. I am going to tell you right now, I am not a Taylor Swift fan. I like a couple of her hit songs but in general I do not like her. Actually, I really dislike this song. Read on to find out why I chose it!


When I heard “Shake it Off” I immediately thought splatter-paint, which so happens to be VERY RA-friendly!

Yes, I went there. I did try to incorporate part of the song by going with a usually not so likable color combination: teal/green and purple! (I personally love it!)

I hope you like it!

I alternated Barry M GNP 14/Key Lime and Sephora by OPI Domestic Goddess as my base.

I splattered with the Barry M GNP 14/Key LimeMNP 10/CancunSephora by OPI Domestic Goddess and Milani Vivid Violet.

I topped everything with INM Northern Lights (Silver). It smeared the design a little but with splatter I guess that is ok. I’ve run out of Seche Vite. I could buy it but I am waiting on a shipment from HauteLook. I bought 3 when they were on sale for $5 each!
