Inspired by Fashion - Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2015

Happy Monday all! It has been awhile since I've done an Inspired by Fashion post.  I came across this Elie Saab photo on Instagram last week and inspiration struck. I love how colorful the design pattern is and yet it has a moody and mysterious vibe as well. 

Tools used:

Nail Polish Thinner

Small Nail Art Brush

BP L015

Polishes Used:

Glitter Gal Chuck a Wobbly

Dance Legend 402, 419, and 420

China Glaze Plum Purr-fect

Konad Special Black

KBShimmer Clearly on Top


I started with two coats of Chuck a Wobbly and a layer of top coat. I then thinned out a drop of each of my polish colors with a bit of thinner and applied them with my brush in random splotches. I then dipped my brush directly into plain thinner and lightly dabbed over each nail to create a more watered down, blurry effect. I stamped on my pattern with Special Black and finished with a coat of Clearly on Top.

I wasn't sure how this would turn out but I am so happy with the end result. I opted for a leaf- like pattern instead of vertical stripes and I think that make the pattern so much more visually interesting. 

What do you all think? Do you like the interpretation of the dress pattern?
