10 Days of Couture Nail Art Challenge Day 10 - Inspired by Zuhair Murad

Hi gang! It's the final day of the challenge. Sad face. I had so much fun with this challenge. My cuticles have not though- ha! The designer I picked for the final challenge is Zuhair Murad. Ah.. Zuhair...what can I say about his designs? Hawt! He is kind of the King of sexy evening dresses. His aesthetic is a bit more is more. Which I admit - I kinda like! His designs are for the woman who wants to stand out and be the most amazing looking woman in the room. Is it any wonder that J.Lo wears his designs to practically every awards show she goes to? The dress I chose as my inspiration is honestly not my cup of tea. I just wouldn't wear something like this. But - I loved the angles of this dress and the color. I immediately pictured what I wanted to do when I saw this.

For this design I used my current go to neutral base, China Glaze Nude. I then used China Glaze Exotic Encounters and used the bottle brush to paint on the curves, varying the patterns on each nail. I layered Julie G Crushed Candy over EE to replicate the beading and give the design texture. I skipped top coat.

And that completes the challenge! I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Do any of you have a favorite design from this challenge? Mine are the Stella McCartney-inspired nails, but I think that has more to do with my obsession with that dress than the nails themselves. Please check out the "Coming Soon" page to see what's coming up in the coming weeks!
