Thakoon Resort 2013 Inspired Nail Art

This nail art is inspired by Thakoon 2013 Resort collection. I actually love a lot of his pieces in this collection. There are a lot of lovely color blocking and bold patterns. I settled on this dress pattern just because I thought it would be easy to replicate and I figured I haven't done any nail stamping in a while. 


I forgot how messy nail stamping was. I think nail art in general is messy, so I have no idea how some nail bloggers have their nails look so picture perfect. Maybe it'll look a lot better with practice or with some heavy retouching. Anyways, this nail art looks complicated, but it's really easy to do. Also... it a kind of a nail art that looks better from afar. Maybe it's because my pictures show so many imperfections. Anyways, keep reading for materials and tutorial!


Materials

  • Turquoise Nail Polish
    • Julep "Robin"
  • Light Blue Nail Polish
    • American Apparel Nail Lacquer "The Valley"
  • Mint Green Polish
    • American Apparel Nail Lacquer "Office" 
  • Black Polish
    • OPI "Black Oynx"
  • Konad Black Polish
  • Konad Image Plate M65
  • Konad Nail Stamping Kit
  • Dotter/Toothpick
  • Nail Art brush

Instructions


  1. Paint your nails white and allow it to dry.
  2. Using Konad Black special polish, place a drop on the M65 image. Scrap and transfer the image onto your nail. It's okay if it's a little smudged, you can touch it up later.
  3. Using a nail art brush and mint green nail polish, paint three thick stripes. Feel free to paint it horizontally like the dress. I chose to paint it diagonally just to make the design a little more interesting.
  4. Using a toothpick or a very fine nail art brush, use a turquoise polish to outline parts of the flowers, but try not cover too much of the black lines.
  5. Use a dotter and regular black polish, create dots in areas with too much white space.
  6. With the smaller end of the dotter or with a tooth pick, dot light blue polish within the black dot. Do any touchup that is necessary. This should complete the look! Finish it off with a top coat and you're done.
