Project Runway: A New Nail Series

I am so excited to share with you some nail designs inspired by the show Project Runway! I love Project Runway; even my boyfriend likes to watch it. My friend Bee asked if anyone wanted to join her in a fun nail series that goes along with the television series. So in this post I have two nail designs - one from episode one and one from episode two. I will also be posting some nail art inspired by the third episode so that I'm allllll caught up for this week.

For the first episode where the contestants were challenged to make a companion outfit to a homework assignment that shows their personal aesthetic, I chose the winning dress by Christopher. Using the winning design is not a requirement of this nail art series (yay!), but truly my favorite design from the first episode. I love the technique he used to piece the dress together so that it ripples and looks beautiful. Texture is my favorite thing, but sometimes it can add a lot of visual bulk to an outfit and this dress maintains cool texture will staying slim. Woo hoo! Christopher is adorable and I totally got tears in my eyes during episode three (more on that soon, promise).

For the second episode that used candy as an unconventional material, I chose Dmitry's dress. It took me a long time to decide which dress to pick for this episode because I really liked two other dresses much more - Sonija's and Fabio's. However, blue/teal/aqua and texture/gradients are things I feel like I do quite often on this blog, so I chose something different from my personal taste. I loved that Dmitry's dress looked like it was beaded and that it had lots of movement - without candy flying off in all directions!

Now I'm curious - do you watch Project Runway?! Who is your favorite designer for this season? So far I have lots of favorites and can't decide :p

Don't forget to check out what Bee and Jewli have done for their favorite designs!


  1. Awesome - I love Project Runway and this is such a neat idea!

  2. I'm a huge fan of Project Runway. I really like the idea of a nail art series based off it. Love your accompanying designs too!

  3. I love these Emma!! I'm so glad you chose to do Christopher's dress from the first episode! I wanted to do it so much but I couldn't find a way to make it pretty on my nail! Your interpretation is fabulous!
