marc jacobs resortSurprise, surprise! Another fashion inspired nail design is here for your viewing pleasure. Marc Jacobs is one of the most influential fashion creatives. He is the genius behind the eponymous label, Marc Jacobs and a creative director of Louis Vuitton since 1997. What he shows one year is likely to become a major fashion trend the next. For instance, Marc Jacobs is the one to blame for the ubiquitous black and white check and thick stripe patterns that are now in retail shops.

Speaking of today’s nail art, it was also inspired by the gorgeous blue shade of Bio Sculpture Prince. This fine blue glitter polish was too beautiful to put away in our stash so it’s been sitting, gleaming on our office table for ages. We just needed to come up with an idea that would show it’s beauty to the full. As soon as we saw an image of the Marc Jacobs yellow with blue sequinned stripes ensemble on Pinterest we knew we had the beginnings of a great nail art idea!

So the beauty of Prince, genius of Mr Jacobs and our curious imagination produced this nail design! Scroll down for a quick how-to.

  1. To paint the blue stripes in the middle of each finger – use striper brush and follow the same technique as shown in this tutorial.
