Kate Middleton x McQueen

Kate Middleton in McQueen Inspired www.chelseaqueen.com

A few days ago Kate Middleton wore THE most amazing Alexander McQueen dress in Canada – I absolutely love her style. While I probably won’t ever get my hands on this gorgeous dress, I thought I could put the dress on my hands instead (ha ha?). At first this design looked a bit daunting, but once I picked out certain parts to copy it made it a bit easier.


I began with 2 coats of white – Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in Sure Thing. I typically stick to white polish during the Summer months, but I really love how it made the red design “pop”! I painstakingly painted in the rest of the design with Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in Roulette Rush, which I think matched perfectly to the red in her dress.

Since this design is so detailed I did make a few mistakes, but luckily the polish I used is very opaque so I painted it over the mistake and I was able to redo that part without redoing the whole nail…phew!

What do you guys think? Do you want to see more fashion inspired nail art?
