Today is FASHION DAY in the OMD Nail Art Challenge! Warning- I am not a fashionista. My favorite shoes are Crocs if that gives you any indication of my personal fashion sense! LOL But in the OMD spirit I started scouring the web for the latest in fashion trends. I stumbled upon this slideshow- Best Looks From Pre-Fall 2013 on Harper’s Bazaar.com. This one Missoni dress caught my eye (source: http://www.harpersbazaar.com) . If I was thin and/or rich I might wear this one. What I like most is it’s unexpected combo of blue, black and orange.
I didn’t try to replicate the Missoni design when I was creating this manicure. Mostly I used the dress for inspiration and loose interpretation :). This mani was actually pretty easy! I free-handed the stripes with a detail brush and also made some dots with a dotting tool. It looked so cool before I put the black dots on too. I almost wish I stopped there. But oh well, I’m still really happy with this look! I like how muted and murky the orange looks against the bright blue! What do you think of it?
Here’s what I’m wearing…..
Blue ♥ Keks by Butter London (so vivid!)
Orange ♥ Orange Creamsicle by AVON (with a drop of black mixed in to darken it)
Black ♥ NYC Black Lace Creme

Beautiful manicure inspired by that piece! Looks great 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Wow it looks amazing!
Aww thanks Viv!
I love it, works so well together. And doesn’t look that easy 😛
Cool, good job
Dang, I love how Keks looks. This is such a fun & funky manicure!
Thanks Jessica- I just took the keks off and it stained a little (even with basecoat)… oh well. Still love this color and the application is great !
Hey now, I consider myself very stylish and I love Crocs 😉 And this mani is gorgeous, what a great interpretation of the dress!
Thanks! So crocs aren’t like anti-fashion? That’s reassuring!
It’s all in the attitude, GURL. Ooh, now I’ve gotta work on a Croc post!
My fave summer shoes are croc wedges called Sassari. I have them in three colors! Wore the pink and white ones today 🙂
I know the Sassari well! Used to have a pair. I bet you rock the hell outta yours.
I can’t recall the names of my favorite models, but except for the classic clog, you wouldn’t suspect any of them are Crocs. Ombre ballet flat, spiky ballet flat, 4″ heel sandals (they feel like a cloud!)…and so on.
You have such a talent for doing nails, your designs always look amazing! You so make me feel like I fail at life 😛 xx
Aww thanks! And stop it with the fail talk! You got it goin on girl! 🙂
Another triumph honey! Cracking job 🙂
Thanks my Eeeek!
