Diane Von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2012 Inspired Nail Art

It finally feels like Spring, even though it's still on the colder side. I'm excited for Spring because next up is Summer! Time to pack away the dark colored sweater and bring out the bright color dresses! I'm getting really picky with my nail art inspiration, which is why I haven't blogged too much this month. But anyways, I finally encountered something I really like. This nail art inspiration is from Diane Von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. Yeah it's an oldie, but it's so colorful, gorgeous, and fun! Anyways, I hope you like it!

Chanel Spring/Summer 13' Inspired Nail Art (St. Patrick's Twist)

I can't believe we're in the 10th day of March already and unfortunately my first post of the month. Next week is already St. Patrick's day and I figured it's time to create some green nails for that occasion.  This nail art is inspired by a dress in Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 collection. I love the simple geometric pattern and I also really like slight ombre effect within the quadrilateral shapes.  As you can probably tell from the picture below, the dress is pink! Initially I wanted to do an exact replication (like I usually do with all my fashion-inspired nails), but since it's so close to St. Patrick's day, I decided to create a green version of it.

The technique is very simple and I think the final result looks pretty cool! You can definitely mix and match colors or do whatever you please. Keep reading for the tutorial and my materials used!
