Inspired by Fashion: Charlotte Olympia - Day 1 Mushroom Clutch Nail Art

It has been forever and a day since I've done and Inspired by Fashion series post which is crazy since it's my favorite series on the blog. But it's back with a serious bit of flair this week! This week's posts are inspired by one of my favorite shoes and bag designers, Charlotte Olympia. If you have never seen her work before, she is responsible for the trend of the gold plated platform and book clutches! Check out more of her designs here. What I love about her designs are their complete since of whimsy. If as a little girl I'd had the ability to design shoes and bags Charlotte's designs are what they would have looked like! Today's nail art is inspired by the very cool Mushroom Pandora Perspex Clutch.


Polishes used:

Sally Hansen Rapid Red

American Apparel Cotton

KBShimmer Clearly on Top

OPI Matte Top Coat


This design was crazy simple and easy to do. I painted my nails with one coat of Rapid Red. Once dry, I used the bottle brush and applied Cotton is non-uniform "splotches" on my nails. I followed with one coat of Clearly on Top and then one coat of Matte Top Coat.

Stay tuned the rest of this week for more nail art inspired by Charlotte Olympia's awesome designs!
