Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 14'-15' Nail Art (St. Patrick's Nail #1)

St. Patrick's day is coming up in few days so I will be creating a few green-themed nail art idea to wear on that day. I'm pretty excited for it since I am having my fourth annual St. Patrick's day party. Now that I'm out of school (for almost 2.5 years now, holy cow!), any time I get to see a big group of my friends together is always a blast. For this first St. Patrick's nail art, I gave a green spin to the design below from the Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 14-15' collection. I love the black cut-outs, again it looks complicated but it is surprisingly easy to do. All you need is a steady hand! 



Last year, I created a Chanel inspired nail art with a St. Patrick's twist. So if you're looking for something easier to do, check out the tutorial I did. If you have the time and patience to do this check out the materials and tutorial after the jump! 



Materials
  • Black Polish
    • Julep "Brandt"
  • Pale Green Polish
    • Julep "Francis"
  • Black Gel Pen
    • Muji Black "0.38"
  • Dotter
  • Fine Nail Art Brush/Striper


Instruction

  1. Paint your nails green and allow it to dry. Pick a section of the pattern design. Replicate it and outline the areas you want black. I scribbled the area in represent that area I need to fill in with black.
  2. You can use a pen to fill in the section or with black nail polish, which I did.
  3. With a dotter and green polish, place small circle within the curved section.
  4. Within the green dot, use a smaller end of the dotter and place a smaller black dot. 
  5. Using a striper brush and green polish, create vertical lines over a black section.
  6. Finish the grid by adding in horizontal lines. Clean up any areas to make the edge look sharper
