Hi everyone! Hope the beginning of your week is going well! =) Today is Day 25: Inspired by Fashion. Lucky us, New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week happened this month, so there is tons of inspiration out there right now! I love reading about Fashion Week, but mostly because I like to see what nail looks and colors show up on the runway!! I loved following butter LONDON, Priti NYC and Zoya on Instagram and Facebook during Fashion Week seeing what they were up to! Today's manicure is inspired by butter LONDON's Cosmic Nail from VEDA NYFW SS13!
Katie Hughes (my hero) of butter LONDON crafted this look using Toff, Sloane Ranger, Knackered, and Union Jack Black. Unfortunately, I own none of those colors. =/ So I decided to get creative! I stayed true to the brand and started off with butter LONDON shades for my base colors: butter LONDON Lady Muck (remember my very first post? awww) and butter LONDON Trout Pout. I then used one coat of Julep Melissa and one coat of Out the Door Northern Lights Silver to attempt to replicate the look of Knackered layered over the base colors! Once dry, I used Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme to add a stripe of polish from the tip of the nail to about 2/3 down! Out the Door top coat!
I love how organic the backstage manicures are at Fashion Week. The nail art looks have to be simple enough to do quickly if they are doing them on natural nails. That's why I chose to not use striping tape to create perfect rectangular stripes on this mani. I wanted to keep that organic, whimsical, hand-done look! Are you diggin' it? Do you think this look is cool for everyday, or should it stay on the runway? I'm loving it!
