31DC2015 Day 25 - Inspired by Fashion

We are at Day 25 of the 31 Day Challenge, Inspired by Fashion. You all know how much I love interpreting fashion into nail art so this is one of my favorite prompts. I scoured the Vogue website for inspiration as I normally do for my normal Inspired by Fashion posts and came across a gorgeous dress from J. Mendel's Spring 2016 collection. 

Tools used:

Medium flat nail art brush

Nail Polish Thinner

Color4nails Crystal Veil

Polishes used:

American Apparel The Valley

Wet n' Wild Black

KBShimmer Clearly on Top


I started with two coats of The Valley and then applied a layer of Crystal Veil around my nails to make the clean-up process easier. For the black pattern, I added a dollop of Black to my nails and then a small dollop of nail polish thinner. I used my nail art brush to spread the thinned out polish and created a feathered effect.I finished with Clearly on Top (as usual).


So what do you think? Does it remind you of the dress? Also - how gorgeous is that dress?!
