Couture Nail Art Challenge: Inspired by Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta was a tough one as there were so many gorgeous gowns to choose from. I loved this bright and fun yellow dress. It feels summery and I thought the black and white flowers would work well for nail art.

I didn’t have a yellow that matched the dress colour well, but I think the overall effect works. I wish I had gone over the black lines one more time to make them look a bit smoother – this is not my neatest work ever! I used acrylic paint for the flowers and I still haven’t quite mastered using it. Sometimes it works really well for me, other time it just feels so thick and heavy to work with…
