31DC2014 -Day 25 – Inspired By Fashion

Hallo! For day 25 of the (am I ever going to get this finished) 31DC2014 challenge, I have chosen this rather amazing dress from the Fall/winter 2014 collection from Alexander McQueen!

Anyway on to the nails!

I used Tickle My French-y from O.P.I for the nude base then the Black is Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous, and the white is Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen.

I have to admit that I’m not amazingly happy with how this turned out, It looked a lot closer to what I had imagined before I applied the top coat, the brush strokes gave it a lot more of a textured almost fuzzy look, rather than my nails looking a bit like moldy strawberries lol!

I started out with 3 coats of the O.P.I polish, it’s a lovely colour that I won in a giveaway along with 3 other O.P.Is 😀 I’ll post swatches and a proper thank you to the lovely lady who ran it when I eventually finish this challenge!

Then using a thin brush I painted on the zig-zag pattern and started to fill in the rest of my nail with the black, then I added the white in wiggly lines…

I’m annoyed that I didn’t think to take photographs before adding the top coat :/ but I had to take this off quite quickly because of having a job interview so I had to have slightly more sensible nails!

Even though this didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped (I’m going to blame the fact that I’m dreadfully out of practice) It’s not that terrible, I think this would look nice with replacing the white with a bright colour, maybe a neon blue or purple!
