Fashion inspired nails: Chanel Resort 2012

August 3rd, 2014 | Posted by Mari in French & half moons | Lace

As I promised I’m continuing with fashion inspired nail designs. Today I’d love to show you a french manicure inspired by a Chanel lace dress with fur add-ons from their Resort 2012 collection.

The dress has a romantic sheer feel, and I wanted to create the same look for my nails.

First I painted my nails nude and waited for them to dry. Next I applied lace water decals on all my nails and sealed the design with a clear top. Then I painted the tips white to do french. When the white polish was still wet, I dipped my nails into white flocking powder and voila! I got laced french nails with fur tips :) The flock is not very visible in the pics, so here’s a close up of the french:

Overall, for the laced french nail design I needed:

  • OPI Canberra’t Without You – a nude nail polish with tiny silver shimmer
  • OPI Alpine Snow – white creme
  • White lace whiter decals
  • White flocking powder
  • Clear top coater
