Its day 3 in the Spring Fling Challenge, half way through! Today's theme is Patterns of Fashion. I had the hardest time picking a design to do for this. I haven't been keeping up on the fashions lately, so I did a trusty Google search. I found some recaps of some looks on various magazine websites. So much inspiration came from just flipping through there. You'll be seeing quite a few nail art ideas coming up based on fashion. I finally came to a decision, with the help of my boyfriend, on a design by Giambattista Valli. I had never heard of this designer before, but one look and I became obsessed. It was hard to choose one simple based on his Spring 2013 collection. There were so many great looks with a pop of color or vampy black. I chose this design. The reds really caught my eye, I don't normally go for red. This pattern is almost a brushy floral. I started out using Julep Kate. For the design I used Essie Lacquered Up, Essie Lady Like, OPI Skyfall and Zoya Dove. I took my nail art brushes and just lightly went around the nail with some fast brush strokes, almost doing a V pattern. I later went back in and used Julep Kate to soften the red. I love the outcome, while it doesn't look identical to the pattern, its very pretty. It almost looks like a painting. What do you guys think?
