I’m kicking off the first Nail Art Fashion Week with these Kenzo inspired nails. As you know, Day 1 was about creating a manicure inspired by your favorite fashion designer (download the schedule here if you haven’t already). As a fashion obsessed person, it is almost impossible to choose one favorite designer, just like I can’t name just one favorite nail polish brand. I love at least 15 designers, each for a different reason. For instance, I love Chanel because for their timeless classical style, McQueen for their constantly surprising & ethereal designs, Valentino for their feminine silhouettes and Celine for their minimal cutting edge designs.
But today my choice goes to Kenzo. If you’ve been following SoNailicious for a while you may remember these Kenzo Eye Nails. This pretty much explains why I choose Kenzo today again. House of Kenzo is famous for their quirky prints and bright colours. As soon as I saw the new Kenzo Fall 2015 collection, which was showcased in Paris just 1 day ago, the fate of my first NAFW2015 manicure was determined. The tough part was choosing a look as their collection is bursting with nailspirational patterns.
These Kenzo nails were done freehand so you need a detailing brush and some nail art skills for this design.
To get the look: First paint the white base, add yellow details with dark yellow accents to replicate the pattern and then add the black spots. Let your manicure dry for a few minutes and seal it with a high gloss top coat.
What do you think about these Kenzo nails? Have you done fashion designer inspired nails before? If so, who was your inspiration?
