LFW Nail Art: Marchesa Spring 2015

I can't believe it's been so long since my last nail post! This will be a quick one as I still have a big contour product post to write.

I've been a longtime fan of Marchesa--I love the romance and embellished-but-not-too-embellished look that is a mainstay for this line. (Here's a throwback moment for you: I'm still hoarding the Revlon by Marchesa nail art strips.) It was only a matter of time before I tackled one of the collections in a runway nail art post.

The inspiration - Spring 2015 ready to wear:

It was instant love for me. I'm totally into the metallic hints and the abstract florals. My translation:

I used OPI Alpine Snow, with one layer of white crelly OPI Funny Bunny on top to create a softer white base. I used Orly Luxe to place some random dry-brush strokes and draw a few leaves and stems. The floral blobs are Orly Artificial Sweetener and another, darker pink I can't remember, sorry!

Honestly I had very mixed feelings about this one as I didn't feel like the translation was a super-success. The pinks I used should have been a little more coral-leaning and eh, I dunno. Surprisingly I received a lot of compliments from friends on this one though, so I grew to like it a little more lol!

I did this some time ago, when I was playing with new nail shapes and decided to try an almond/baby stiletto look. I am frigging obsessed with this shape right now and currently have a slightly longer version going on at the moment. I often post out of order (not necessarily going chronologically in order of what I photographed) so you'll probably see a lot of nail posts over the next few months going back and forth between this shape and my usual squoval.

Hope you're having a great weekend! There will be some pretty neat posts in the coming week, please stay tuned ;)
