The Nail Art Fashion Week is nearing the end but I still have some manicures to show you ;) Today's theme is Inspired by Fall 2016 Dress - create a manicure inspired by your favourite garment from the current Fall 2016 fashion week.
There were some amazing dresses that I would happily wear but I wanted to find something unusual, quirky and with great pattern. I found the right dress at Orla Kiely Orla La collection, the same collection that my inspiration for a Day 3 came from.
About the collection: "Day looks include printed dresses with patterns influenced by nature and the northern English moors in a georgette fabric. Abstract leaf and tree prints covered dresses with pleating details, some with a bow neatly placed on the collar." Read more about this collection and see all the pictures here.
The purple tree pattern was a love at first sight and I knew I had to fit it in somewhere.
I've started with base coat and two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Then I've selected the largest dotting tool I had and Zoya Odette and dotted the lightest and widest part of the tree crown first. Then I've used darker shade of purple (Zoya Monica) and dotted the middle part. Then, using slightly smaller dotting tool and OPI Honk If You Love OPI mixed with a bit of Cirque Memento Mori, I dotted the inner and last layer of the tree. Now I had to paint the tree branches and I've used Color Club black nail art striper (use STASH15 for 15% discount). All sealed with Seche Vite top coat and later matted with OPI Matte Top Coat.
Here's how the nails looked glossy:
So which version is your favourite this time? Matte or glossy?
