Marchesa Ombre Fringed Nail Art

No comments :
So finally this is what I consider "real-time" nail art since I actually completed it today after three failed attempts of trying to imitate other patterns. I finally settled on the Marchesa Ombre Fringed dress adorned by the lovely Serena Van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) in the Season 5 episode "Riding in Town Cars With Boys". I absolutely love Marchesa designs because it is always so elaborate, sparkly and always so beautifully constructed. I pray they will one day collaborate with H&M!

Moschino Cherry Nail Art

3 comments :
As you can see that I posted up 3 blog posts of my nail art within days of each other. No, I didn't do them all in the same week or day. That would quite the waste of time and work! These are all nail art that I have photographed from a couple months back and that I'm super proud of.

So this nail inspiration comes from "Belles de Jour" Season 4 Episode 1 of Gossip Girl. Blair wore this amazingly cute four-color Moschino Cherry dress from the Spring 2010 collection. I can't get over how incredibly adorable the print is!

Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony Nail Art

No comments :
Again, another nail art inspired by Gossip Girl! But this time instead of Blair Waldorf, it's Vanessa Abrams, everyone's least favorite character. Can I just say that I'm glad that she's gone and her "replacement" Charlie Rhodes/Ivy Dickens isn't really wowing me either. Yeah, I'm a bit of a fan of the show as you can probably tell.

Anyways, this Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony peacoat stood out to me because of it's bright colours and very bold markings. The colour combination reminds me of a colourful Native American headdress, while the black marking reminds me of tribal patterns. Quite the mesh! So this peacoat was featured on Season 4 Episode 10 "Gaslit" in case you want to find the episode and spot it.

Balenciaga Cherry Blossom Nail Art

I've been doing nail art ever since I received my very first Konad Nail Stamping Kit when I was 14. I'm 22 now, so I've had a lot of practice and a growing collection of image plates. But there are so many people out there who can put my collection to shame. Most of my nail art posts will show you how I manipulate the image plates to resemble high-end fashion print patterns. I'm not going to lie, most of my inspiration comes from the clothes that Blair Waldorf wears on Gossip Girl. What can I say, they have an amazing stylist who knows how to combine different patterns and colours brilliantly! I wish I can afford all her clothes, but for now painting it on my nails will just have to do. I hope you enjoy this post and please follow my blog as I create more work of nail art.

The inspiration of this nail art comes from Season 4 of Gossip Girl, Episode 87 "The Wrong Goodbye".  Blair wears a beautiful Balenciaga Cherry Blossom dress and accessorizes with a chunky crystal bead necklace. I absolutely love the floral print and that's what I decided to replicate on my nail.
