Day 5 of NAFW 2016 is dedicated to a manicure inspired by a style icon. First I thought about doing a manicure inspired by an Australian icon. We have plenty – Nicole Kidman, Kylie Minogue, Crocodile Dundee, just to name a few… However, instead I opted for someone a bit more modern. This girl (she is only 18) is a real trend setter. Her beauty looks, hair and outfits are copied by millions of loyal fans and most importantly, her lips are incredibly famous. With a cult following of it’s own this plumped up pout received so much attention from the media, – Madonna’s recent tour didn’t even get close to that.
Can you now guess who it is? Of course… Kylie Jenner! You can love her or hate her, but she is certainly quite a personality nowadays. With a staggering social media following (58 millions on Instagram alone), numerous magazine covers, her own lipstick range and now even a fashion range, Kylie is totally nailing it at the moment.
So, that’s the inspiration for today’s manicure – the famous Kylie Jenner lips in her signature colours! The design was entirely hand-painted and it’s pretty easy for a freehand manicure. So if you’d like to try it, read the how-to below.
To get the look: First apply 2-3 coats of matte nude nail polish or nude polish + matte top coat. Using a detailing nail art brush paint lip print in mauve, red, oxbood and chocolate brown. That’s it! Let your manicure dry for 10-15 minutes and you’re done.
