The Marni inspired fashion nails were the second nail design I did for MBFWA. They were inspired by this Marni bag and a J.W.Anderson design. For something different I did the opposite colour combination on my left hand. See!? Evidence that I can do nail art on both hands.
I must admit I was a bit too optimistic to think I could do a new nail design every day during Australian Fashion Week. The busy schedule didn’t leave time for that so I ended up with only two designs which I matched to my outfits. The previously shown tribal nails were a part of this outfit, and the Marni nails were part of this look.
Both nail designs were a great success! They were a real conversation starter and got photographed by street style photographers and make up artists more than my face! I didn’t mind considering I’m not responsible for creating my face but I did create these nail designs!

- Paint one hand in 2 coats of opaque black polish and another in 2 coats of white polish. Let it dry.
- Using striping tape, first attach equally spaced horizontal stripes on all nails. Next, place vertical evenly spaced striping tape vertically to form the grid pattern.
- Seal your design with a top coat.
