Piece By Piece

I don't know about the rest of you, but April has been a really busy month for me. On top of participating in Nail Art Fashion Week two weeks ago, April is exam month for me so I've had a lot of studying and writing to do as well. The good news though is that EXAMS ARE OVER!! I'm officially done my third year of uni and am very much looking forward to having the next four months off from the stress of looming deadlines.

As a result of trying to concentrate on studying, this week's design is just a simple geometric pattern loosely inspired by Daily Charme's packaging!

Hey guys! The design I have for you today is one that I've had on my to-do list for a while and I'm super excited that I finally got around to painting it!
This look is inspired by @girlgreybeauty, an awesome lip and makeup artist on Instagram!

NAFW2016 Roundup

Hey guys! This past week has been such a whirlwind of designs but it's also been super fun and I'm so glad to have been a part of Fashion Week again this year!

Before Nail Art Fashion Week 2016 officially comes to a close, I'd just like to take a look back at all of the designs from the past week!

NAFW2016 Day 7: Fall 2016 Runway Nail Art

It's already the last day of Fashion Week!
Like last year, I wanted to end the challenge with a bang so for inspiration I once again turned to Libertine and the CND Design Lab. They definitely did not disappoint with their designs this year including this fun, furry one!

NAFW2016 Day 6: Fall 2016 Dress

For day six of Fashion Week we were asked to pick a dress from the Fall 2016 Runways to recreate! I chose a gorgeous dress from Marchesa's Fall 2016 RTW Collection for the occasion!

NAFW2016 Day 5: Style Icon

Day Five of Fashion Week challenged us to pick our favourite fashion blogger or style icon! I chose the lovely Lupita Nyong'o because I swear she makes everything she wears look absolutely stunning!

The dress that Nyong'o is wearing in the inspiration photo is from the Giambattista Valli F/W 2014 Collection.

NAFW2016 Day 4: Fashion Trend

For day four of Fashion Week we were challenged to pick our favourite trend from the Fall 2016 Runways!
There were a lot of interesting trends to pick from (including velvet, puffed sleeves, and period pieces) but the one that I ended up going with was capes! One of my close friends got me a cape/poncho for my birthday last year so I've kind of been into capes lately. The one that I chose to recreate for Fashion Week is one from Gucci's Fall 2016 RTW Runway.

NAFW2016 Day 3: Bag

I loved the theme for day three of Fashion Week because it gave me an excuse to indulge in looking through a bunch of designer bags! Even though some designer bags can be pretty impractical (as my friends continuously pointed out while watching me scroll through runway galleries), if I had the money my closet would definitely be filled with them!

Since there were so many cool bags I had a hard time picking just one. I finally decided that I needed to add a bright design in this week and settled on recreating this awesome backpack from Moschino!

NAFW2016 Day 2: Shoes

Day two of Fashion Week is shoes!
There were so many awesome shoes to pick from this year! I swear I had like 30 tabs open at one point with different pairs that I either wanted to turn into nails or just wanted for myself :P Ah, to be able to afford $900 shoes.

But without further ado, here are my shoe-inspired nails for NAFW!

NAFW2016 Day 1: Favourite Fashion Designer

Hey guys! I'm super excited to be participating in Nail Art Fashion Week again this year! This year's event is being hosted by the lovely @so_nailicious, @manicurator, @lieve91, @veryemily, and @lucysstash!

The theme for day one of NAFW is favourite fashion designer. Since I don't really follow fashion enough to have a favourite designer, I decided to choose a designer that I really liked during Fashion Week last year: Diane von Furstenberg!

Petal Pusher

I know it's supposed to be spring but the weather around here doesn't seem to have gotten the message; we got a good 10-15 cm of snow last weekend. To help convince myself that it really is spring, I painted some cute little daisies on my nails!
