Erdem Inspired Nail Art with April Julep Polishes

If you don't know already, I love my Julep polishes. They are the only subscription service that delivers right at the beginning of the month. I got my Julep package on April 5th and I live in Toronto! Not even Canadian beauty box subscription can meet that timeline sometimes. This month I accumulated enough points to redeem for the full neon collection. I knew immediately what design I wanted to do. Several months ago Kristen Stewart wore this see-through Erdem outfit to one of her event. It was kind of ugly, but I really like the neon accents. When I was looking for inspiration, I knew I had to check out Erdem's entire collection and sure enough I found something I liked! Below is an Erdem Spring 2013 inspired nail art. I have taken a huge liking to Erdem's designs, this is my third inspired nail art from this designer. It's nice to know that he's a Ryerson University Grad just like me! But I really do like his aesthetic.


For materials and close up, check it out after the jump. 

So here are the polishes I used to create this nail art. From the April Collection, I used Abbie (yellow), Kaylen (orange), Jackie (red), and Avery (hot pink). In addition, I also used Julep Reese (baby pink) and Olivia (brown) to help me with shading. There's no nail art tutorial for this one because I was just experiment with the polishes and mixing them together. I think I even used about 5 different nail art brush. So it was hard to keep track what tools I used and how I went about each step. But hopefully for my next nail art, I can create a tutorial for you.
