Day 25: Inspired by Fashion

I'll be honest here - I'm not a very fashion conscious person. I'm not trying to sound conceited but I may come across like that anyway, but I believe personal style > fashion. So the first thing I did for researching today's nails was to Google 'Fashion'!
After a bit of searching, I stumbled upon Michael Kors' website and fell in love with the simplicity and elegance of his dress designs. I quickly chose this dress as my inspiration.

Thankfully, Rie and Cris know a bit more than me about fashion. Head over to see their couture creations today.

Studded Nails Original

I used W7 Black as a base colour then slicked on GOSH top coat and placed
on the bullion before it dried.
I used a top coat of NYC to seal it all in.

Studded Nails Original

This dress is so classic yet the studs give it that rock-chick rebel vibe. I love it! I feel like such a bad-ass wearing studded nails! I'll be wearing my biker boots and leather jacket today.

  70. These are smoking. After I saw these it was actually going to be my NYE mani. Right when I finished one hand I dropped something and it ruined the whole thing. So I ended up having to do something else.

    ReplyDelete
  71. where did you get the bullions from???????

    ReplyDelete
  72. I know I'm really late on this one, and the volume of comments you've received indicates how awesome this is, but I still wanted to comment. OMG - simple idea, but the execution in flawless. This is super sexy-looking! Awesome!

  74. Great idea! It's some kind of nail art that really interests me, because it's minimalist and chic. I used your pictures as reference for a post in my blog (here http://fiercekrieg.blogspot.com/2012/02/studded-nails.html). Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Wow - you did awesome! I have a handbag that kind of is like this nail look. I'm not sure if I'd have the patience for it. If you do anymore or have any tutorials, please share with us at: http://www.taaz.com/trends/trends.html.

  79. I just wanted to tell you that there is a facebook page that is using at least one of your images without your watermark and with the facebook group watermark. The facebook page is Indievolutions. I don't want to put the link but I have seen an EXACT picture of this manicure. I think your job is absolutely amazing and should not be copied!!
