Designer Thusday: Print Nail Art

As I will have a little bit more time this summer, I decided to do something fun. I love all kinds of prints, so I thought it would be interesting to try recreating some of them from the various runways shows and designer collections.

For my first nail art I have chosen the print from 2012 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week by Australian designer Manning Cartell. I really liked how turquoise stripe is added to traditional black and white combination.

I used:
- A-England Galahad;
- Nails Inc. Black Taxi;
- NYC 134;

Overall, I like how it turned out. I should probably have used special Black nail polish for konading, because this one is not opaque enough. But it shows only on the pictures, in natural light it’s almost unnoticeable.
