This Abstract blue and red nail design is inspired by one of the most popular colour combinations as seen at Fashion Week Australia. Blue and red combo has been present at half of the collections, so it’s safe to assume it’s going to be the hottest colour combinations of Summer 2018. The other quite popular combination is lemon yellow and nude, but let’s leave it for another post…
Oh boy, Fashion Week has been incredible nailspiration wise! In total we’ve attended 14 shows and went backstage for the most. I hope you could keep up with our live coverage via Instagram and Snapchat. If not, don’t be sad, I’ll show you the best of the Fashion Week here, on SoNailicious. Starting this week, in collaboration with OPI Australia I’ll be creating Fashion Week inspired nail designs and tutorials. So you’ll be able easily to re-create them. Plus, of course, I’ll show you the most beautiful (read: the most nailspirational) fashion designs and beauty trends.
Now, let’s get back to our Abstract nail design… As you may have already guessed, this nail design is completely freehand painted. So if you’d like to try it, first paint all nails with red and then add the bright blue details using a liner nail art brush. Make sure you’re using very pigmented creme polishes, like OPI Infinite Shine, that way the blue details will come out true blue in just one coat, even when painted over red.
