NAFW 2016 Day 5 - Inspired by Fashion Blogger/Style icon
It's day 5 of the Nail Art Fashion Week and we are taking inspiration from Fashion Bloggers/Style icons. The brief was clear: "create a design inspired by your favorite fashion icon, i.e. by her/his outfit, her favorite colours or maybe nail art that they wore. It can be an actress, blogger, model or your neighbor – anyone you consider a style icon."
I've chosen Emma Watson as my style icon and today's nail inspiration. And I've just learnt this morning that it's her birthday! What a wonderful coincidence! HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMMA!
I've seen her wearing some chic outfits and beautiful dresses plus I love Harry Potter and her other movies and what she does with her influence in real life. She is an inspirational woman and a great role model. Once she wore this beautiful Maxime Simoens dress with watercolour accents and I've attempted to recreate it on my nails.
For this look I've used to coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, a muted white with grey undertonnes. Then I've applied OPI Matte Top Coat which would make the nail surface better for watercolours. I painted the pattern with my Winsor & Newton watercolour set and sealed with Seche Vite top coat. Here's the glossy version for you as well:
Hard choice but I still prefer the matte version, what about you?
