Manicure inspiration: Christian Dior Resort 2014

Fashion provides some of the best nail art inspiration. Especially in this era of excess with an abundance of prints, embellishments and colour. We’ve always been a big fans of Christian Dior, so when a photo report of the new Christian Dior Resort 2014 landed on our table, we couldn’t help but to create a Dior inspired manicure.

This nail design is all hand painted. Every nail has a different pattern because we couldn’t choose just one favorite dress from the Dior Resort collection. Luckily, we have 10 fingers available to accommodate all of our favorites.

The stripes of colour were painted with a thin brush one after another, along to each other (not one on top of another or overlapping each other). This freehand nail art was actually quite easy and fast to do. Definitely, much easier than we expected. So for something different, we’d recommend you try your hand at freehand multicloured nail design too. You never know how well it may turn out! As for us, we’ll be definitely freehand-ing more from now and on – it’s so fun!

Used: Orly Nailtrition as a base coat, Bourjouis limited edition polishes: 1950, 1995, 2001, 1980, 1890, and Hello Darling Rubber Duckie, Sally Hansen Diamond Flash top coat.

What about you dear nailicious comrades? Have you ever tried hand painting the entire pattern on your nails? Show us – on Instagram tag your freehand creations #sonailicous!

And, how do you like our freehand-ed Christian Dior nails?

    Love it, true inspiration. I’ve done it before but didn’t work that well, next time I’ll try harder.

      Yes, more practice better results! I must confess my first attempts at ombre and water marbling manicures were shocking. But you know, now it all looks flawless :)
