ModCloth Nail Klub and Dresses Challenge - Nail Art Manicure Inspired by Shortcake Story Dress

I was recently invited by ModCloth to take part in a rather exciting nail art challenge:

To create a stylish manicure inspired by one of ModCloth's fabulous dresses. I was sent a link to the following blog entry for inspiration.

After spending a while browsing through the gorgeous range of dresses, I immediately fell in love with the beautiful Short Cake Story Dress in Red - A gorgeous cute/chic summer dress with an equally cute name :)

The second I saw the dress I knew I had the perfect Konad Stamping plate to create a funky french manicure to mimic the the overall look of the dress.

  • I started this look using Red Carpet Manicure's gel system in 132 Glitz & Glamorous - a gorgeous lit from within shimmery crimson shade. I went with a gel base as it would be immediately dry and ready for nail art. (you can find out more about Red Carpet Manicure's Nail system over here)
  • I used the floral french manicure design from Konad Plate M56 with White Konad Special Polish
  • I created the Black line using a permanent fine nib marker pen
  • After allowing the design to dry completely I applied Seche Vite carefully in 3 strokes.

I really enjoyed this challenge,  it was a lot of fun to create and I will definitely do more fashion inspired manicures in the future!
