Friday is here again, and that means it's time to delve back into some nail art as inspired by fashion for the Nail Challenge Collaborative. This week I'm presenting some more funky, abstract nails with a hint of negative space, pulled once again from a look in the pages of a fashion magazine.
My inspiration for this look comes from this picture from the Elle UK March 2015 issue, in the feature on New Shapes. I was drawn to the interesting neckline shape and thought it would make a cool translation onto the nail.
I recreated the shape with a striping brush and Sally Hansen OMGhost, creating a triangle of sorts with a V shape through the center of the nail and the half moon at the cuticle, which was then filled in. I then pulled down a thin french tip, leaving free edge exposed because apparently that's the girl I am these days.
Each nail was finished off with two dots of Essie Good As Gold to mimic the harness fastener on the original clothing design.
Probably because I did this design really quickly, it isn't my neatest work to date, but it's a striking and unique look for the bold and brave nail art lovers out there. I've really been enjoying creating these looks based on fashion trends, because it inspires me to be a bit more bold with my choices. I hope you've been enjoying them as well.
Of course, I've also really enjoyed seeing the other looks my new NCC friends have been coming up with as well! Be sure to check out their 3rd looks for the challenge, in the inlinkz below.
As always, have a safe and enjoyable weekend. I'll see ya tomorrow with a new indie swatch! Also, I want to send a quick Happy Birthday to one of my girls back home, Pam. Wish I was there to celebrate it with you, girlie!
