Dress Inspired Nail Art

I did this mani a couple of weeks ago. It's my first nail art attempt ever! (Prediction: you will be seeing a lot of "firsts" from me in the months to follow.) I ordered a brush set off of Amazon, but I am still waiting for it to arrive. I'm starting to get really impatient! Since I was sans brushes I used one end of my cuticle pusher tool. I really love the mauve and grey colors in this fabric and they inspired me to create my own flowers. I didn't want my nails to look too busy using all the colors, so I simplified the palette and I was happy with the overall results.

The base color is Sephora by OPI Tweet You Later
The colors in the flowers are:
Sephora by OPI Pale is the New Tan (pale cream)
Essie Chinchilly (greige, love this color!!)
Essie Angora Cardi (deep, dusty mauve)
Essie Madison Ave-hue (bright pink)

My right hand was much more of a challenge. I just pretended like I meant it to look that way.

I'm looking forward to my next nail art attempt!


  1. Wow! You did that by hand? That's amazing. Especially since it was your first time. You've got some serious skillz!

  2. Charlotte, my 4 year old, and I LOVE this one!
