As many of you know, I’m always getting inspired by something for my nails! I have been wanting to do nails inspired by this Mara Hoffman dress for a while, but kept putting it off. Today was such a lazy day so I decided I needed to do them 🙂 Here’s the dress:
Isn’t it just amazing? I love the colors and the pattern and I thought it would translate really nicely onto my nails.
If you haven’t tried Sally Hansen polishes yet, I suggest its time you do! I love their brushes because they are wider than normal, and it makes it way easier to paint your nails…not to mention the gorgeous colors! They are sold in many stores (Target, Walmart, CVS, Ulta, etc.!) and are a very good price. I chose Barracuda, a bluish-mint shade; Water Color, aqua; and Kook a Mango, a bright orange shade of red for this design…they matched the print perfectly!
I wanted to keep with the “Sally Hansen” polish theme but I didn’t have a yellow, then I remembered I had a yellow nail art pen. I’ve always been hesistant to try the nail art pens but they surprisingly work very well. Its difficult to get it really detailed, but for larger designs it works great. I used a nail art brush for the rest of the colors, and then used Essie Licorice to add in the black details!
I’m loving this pattern! Took me a couple hours but it was worth it. Now…if only I had the dress to match? 🙂
