Hello lovelies,

 

You and I have an exciting week ahead of us! Maria from So Nailicious has organised a second Nail Art Fashion Week and I'm one of the hosts! If you'd like to know more, check out the announcement post with all details and how to join!

 

The theme of today is Favorite fashion designer and I chose Emanuel Ungaro. I'm not a massive fashion fan and I don't follow designers unless it's for nail inspiration but I've seen some pretty awesome clothes from Emanuel Ungaro over the years. Well, this year at Paris Fashion Week, Emanuel Ungaro presented this amazing bold flowers piece and I knew instantly I want to recreate it for Nail Art Fashion Week! If you'd like to read more about this collection and see all the other clothes, visit Vogue.

This dress falls into category 'Fall 2016 Ready-to-wear' - what do you think of it? Pretty awesome, right? I love bold prints and I love a good nail art challenge so this one was perfect :)

 

For this nail design I've used one coat of Cirque Memento Mori, OPI Matte Top Coat, Seche Vite Top Coat, acrylic paints and nail art brushes (Pure Color #9 and Cotman watercolour brushes from local art store).

 

I've done matte version of this manicure and I like it so much more than the glossy one! It also triggered something and now I'm 'mattifying' every manicure :D

Hello lovelies,

 

It's the last day of the A England week and today I'll show you nail art and I have a giveaway for you! Let's start with the nail art..

 

As you know I love floral nail art designs and I wanted to do some watercolour effect again. The A England Let Me In is my favourite shade so I'm using two coats as a base. Then I painted the  flowers using watered down white acrylic paint and Pure Color liner brush that I got from What's Up Nails.

I quite like how the flowers came out and the subtle holo peeking through the petals. What do you think?
