Inspired by Chanel Couture SS16 feat. Wet n Wild Yo Soy

The couture shows always manage to spark a bit of creativity in me so over the past few days I've been perusing Vogue's website looking for a beautiful ensemble I could transform into a nail art look. I settled on this look modelled by Bella Hadid in the Chanel show. I love the texture of the dress and I thought it would be pretty cool to try and replicate them on my nails.

I tried to replicate the texture of the top layer of the dress with a small brush dipped in polish with the excess taken off. I just randomly dotted the varnish around the top layer and loaded up the brush (and swiftly took off the excess!) when needed.

I then used a small dotter to create the bottom layer, which is almost a textured rounded quilt. I wanted to keep the dots irregular enough that it looks a bit haphazard but with enough order to not look too messy. Lastly, I used the same brush from the first section to do the pom-pom column things. I wish I had gone in with a striper brush or a thinner one to create the correct texture but I like the colour combo anyway.

I used Wet n Wild's Yo Soy from their Wild Shine range. I picked it up in Penney's during my last trip down to Dublin. It's a lovely warm taupe shade that lends itself as being a good base for neutral and subtle nail art. It took three coats for an even coat to happen. It's a cheap polish so it didn't have opacity straight away so its not a polish for a manicure on the go but if you've got a bit of time to paint your nails for work the next day, then maybe this would be a good one for you. I topped the whole thing off with Seche Vite of course (I got to use my new bottle for the first time, absolute heaven!)
