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
