Couture Nail Art Challenge: Inspired by Elie Saab

Oh dear, this one didn’t turn out well… Elie Saab’s dresses are fairytale beautiful and the thing that stood out to me most was the textures he uses. I love the sheer fabrics decorated with flowers, stripes and patterns. that’s what I wanted to capture in my nail art.

Based on dresses like these, my idea was to layer a sheer pink and a sheer white and then decorate them with tiny white and pink flowers. The sheer part worked ok but the decorations started out too subtle, so I kept going with them and they ended up looking blobby and distinctly un-elegant.
