Digit-al Dozen: That Gorgeous Blue Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 Gown (on mah nails)

This post could also potentially be titled "How I made people that care about fashion cringe by attempting to repeat the beautiful silhouette of an amazing Oscar de la Renta dress on my nails with a striper brush and shaky hands". Very sorry about this fashion friends, but it is fun to try interesting shapes with slivers of *gasp* nude nail peeking out around the edges. Please take a peek at these pretty, pretty nails below!

To get the funky shapes, I first drew a straight line down the middle of each nail with a long, skinny striper brush dipped in Pure Ice French Kiss (my favorite blue, as IF I hadn't told you enough about it already). Having a straight line down the middle made it a lot easier to draw the same pattern on each side. Then I freehanded some floraly-line patterns and dots with both black acrylic paint and black polish. I was really happy with the end result and I loved the drama of the blue and black paired together, much like the dress!

Finally, don't forget to check out the other posts for today!
