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.
By the way, it was our first attempt at 100% freehand nail art. 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!
