Hello lovelies,

 

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:

Hello lovelies,

 

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?
