Today's nail design was inspired by an Indian style dress I own. Here's a close-up picture of the patterns and colours of cloth the dress is made from:
So pretty right? To recreate the design I went in search of polishes which match the colours of the dress. =]
I settled upon using a black in the form of Colour Club's Where's the Soiree, an antique gold in the form of MEMEME's Pewter and the most perfectly matching teal in the form of Wet and Wild's Caribbean Frost =]
To create the nail design, the first thing I did was paint my nails in Caribbean Frost:
Caribbean Frost is such an incredible metallic teal colour which shines like crazy! Sooo beautiful =] I used two coats of polish here.
Next to create the patterns within the dress I used thin strips of tape and Colour Club's Where's the Soiree to make vertical lines down my nails. Over the top of this I stamped on a pattern from Bundle Monster plate BM 20 using MEMEME's Pewter.
I love this look! It also looks quite oriental, with the fan type pattern =]
Here's how they look against the actual dress:
Yay =] Lol I really like how these turned out and I can't wait to wear my dress tonight =] I didn't mention before but I'm going to a formal evening dinner type thing tonight lol and this is what i'l be wearing there =]
So what do you think of this design? Have you guys ever recreated an outfit or something else on your nails??
