Today is the second day of the Nail Art Fashion Week and the theme is SHOES! I've chosen to take an inspiration from Derek Lam shoes modelled at this year's New Yor Fashion Week. There weren't that many shoes that caught my attention but these ones are fun!
I chose these shoes because I liked the use of negative space and partially raised surface and the overall filigree look. It was a clear choice for me because it allowed me to do kind of a 3D look using gel.
I started with Unt peel off base coat because I will be using gel that I don't want to wear for long. Then I've painted on all the white filigree with white acrylic paint from Crystal Nails. Once that dried I have used a small nail art brush and Bela Forma Mat White gel paint 23 and painted inside the filigree pattern. I've left a white border around it so it looks like the surface is rising in the middle. Lastly, I've sealed it all with Gelish Top It Off gel polish top coat. For this experiment I've used the new Mylee PRO Elite LED lamp (will be reviewing it) and it seemed to have worked a treat!
So what do you think of my shoes inspired nails?
