Ace of Spades

So if you're a big Kate Spade nerd like me, you got an email last Tuesday with the pattern of the month for April. If not–you missed out, kid!  One of the things I love the most about Kate Spade bags and accessories is the amazing use of color, and the super fun patterns! My favorite Kate Spade bag that I've ever purchased is the Maeda bag in Pacific Blue- it looks super retro, and it's pretty much the exact color of a Pan Am stewardess bag! I was on the fence about it, because it was a tad more than I wanted to spend, but I'm so glad I ended up buying it!!  Anyway, the pattern of the month for April is a fun and swishy robin's egg blue over white/ivory, and I think it's totally adorable. :)

I decided to do my interpretation of the newest Kate Spade pattern on my nails to usher in Spring (although Spring was officially skipped here in Chennai, and it was pretty much summer in February). This pattern was created by Australian artist Florence Broadhurst.

To get an idea of the pattern, here's a bag with it:  Florence Broadhurst Fingers Bon Shopper.

And now, here's the nails! :)

Hey look!  It's my favorite Maeda bag! :) (the handles, at least)

I used Lakme Color Crush 08 (white) as a base, with American Apparel The Valley for the design. I topped it all off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat. :)

Are you a fan of handbags? Who makes your favorite? Do you have an all-time favorite bag purchase like me?
