I usually stick to plain, smooth polish (though in fun colors) but when Modcloth issued the challenge to create nail art inspired by some of their most popular summer dresses I thought it sounded like a fun challenge.
I kept it pretty simple and tried techniques I had seen floating around Pinterest that looked easy for a beginner like me. Finding a dress or two that inspired me was easy.
First up was the Silver Moon Melodies Dress, mocha colored lace with a beautiful open back and fitted bodice. I used antique lace and Essie ‘Cocktails & Coconuts’ to create a dimensional faux french manicure. This isn’t really a practical nail design, but it was fun and looked really pretty! All I did was cut the lace to fit and apply them to the tacky polish after a couple of coats. The white on the tips is actually the bottom trim of the lace.
