mod dolly winter nails part III

dress: Mod Dolly

Here is part III of my collaboration with Mod Dolly! I'm creating nail art based on their amazing Winter 2014 lookbook.

When I saw this print I instantly thought of fairy lights, and knew it would be a great take on the fairy light nail designs. I used a dotting tool to perfectly recreate the scalloped design across all the nails on a dark grey base, rather than isolating it on each nail, to create the effect of looking up at outdoor Christmas lights. I then added different colours for a festive feel, and painted imperfect snowflakes to capture the feeling of looking up at lights and the snow swirling around them.

This is my favourite design of the three I've done. I really enjoyed using the print as a loose inspiration, and it's now fully got me in the festive mood!!
