Hello lovelies,

 

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?

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
