Fashion inspired nails: Chanel Resort 2012August 3rd, 2014 | Posted by 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
That’s it for today :) Fashion inspired nail designs are to be continued :)
