Louise Alsop is a designer that’s pretty new to the scene and she had a slot at London Fashion Week in the Fashion East show. A few of her designs caught my eye as being perfect for a nail art adaptation. I really loved the effect of the grungy black and white, geometric patterns contrasted with the floaty mint green pieces.
I used Barry M Meadow for the glimmery mint and set down Barry M White as the base for the nail art.
To create the tiled effect, I placed striping tape where I wanted the white lines to show through.
Using a nail art brush, I mixed Barry M White, Rimmel Grey Matter and W7 Black in varying quantities to create all the different shades of grey one shade at a time. I then used the nail art brush to paint each shade on to my nails, staying in the lines!
As soon as I was done, I peeled off the tape to reveal the perfectly crisp lines underneath.
It’s all finished with two coats of Glisten and Glow HK Girl.
