When I saw this Cavalli top on net-a-porter.com, I knew I just had to do a DIY. Obviously at first I was thinking fashion DIY, but you know, some things you just have to leave to the designers ! I thought of ways to print and paint, but didn’t think the result would be as good as this beauty. It’s way too detailed. But I love this top so much ! Such an original spin on the regular striped tee… So, unable to let go of the inspiration, I figured out a new project : a nail art design inspired by the pretty print.
If you remember my snowy nails from before Xmas, you might also remember me thinking my white nail obsession was temporary. Well, it wasn’t. And I love the contrast of a bright white with this royal blue. To do this design I used two regular Nail Art pens in white and blue (I only used the white with the paint brush so really you just need white nail polish and a blue nail art pen) and followed these simple steps :
1 : Paint all your nails white
2 : Draw a swirly design on your accent nail with the blue nail art pen
3 : Still using the blue nail art pen, draw two slightly curved lines down each other nail (joining them at the cuticle and spreading them apart at the top of the nail) and stripe from that line outwards leaving the centre of the design white.
Yes, yes, yes – I’m loving it !
