Nail Inspiration

img_0916I have started following some gorgeous couture accounts on Instagram. The dresses are stunning and have really been inspiring me in regards to nails. One in particular really caught my eye by Zuhair Murad Haute Couture. Is this not a stunning dress? The detail in the bead work just blows me away! I love the colors and texture and how abstract but not it is!

This gave me such a yearning that I needed to do a set of nails inspired by this dress. Thankfully I have the most amazing clients and when I showed the picture it stole one of their hearts as well.

I used all CND Shellac products. For the base I used Creekside, which is a really pale, cool blue that is stunning! For the beads that almost appear translucent or a very soft silver I used Safety Pin. Then for the floral pink beads I used and Winter Glow & Hot Pop Pink and also mixed them together to soften the color.
