Anyway, I scanned my closet the night before the wedding to look for a dress. I decided to wear this brown floral dress and I wanted to create a wedding nail design that would go with it. I was aiming for something simple and dainty and this is what I came up with:
Brown For A Wedding Nail Art Design by Simply Rins
Brown base color is 2 coats of Orly Hot Chocolate. I remember using this on my Nail Art: Dots On Dots. I absolutely love this brown color and application is a breeze. The bottle color is much lighter compared to when its applied to nails. It becomes a deep brown after 2 layers.
The flowers were all hand painted using acrylic paint and a detailing nail art brush.
I requested nanay (Filipino word for mother) to take a full body photo of me so I could share with you how I came up with my nail design for the wedding. Here it is:
Floral Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Wedge Shoes: Aerosoles
Nail Art: by ME!
Photographer: my mother
Please forgive the lack of artistry. I really am clueless when it comes to posing for the camera. Perhaps I can do this on a regular basis, matching a nail design for an outfit just because I had fun and I think it is a great personal challenge.
The color of the dress is sort of golden brown. I originally wanted to match that color with a nail polish, but unfortunately, I don't have one that matches that shade. I was torn between something yellow or beige as base color for my nails until I decided for a deep brown that would match my shoes.
The idea is to come up with a nail design that would complement the outfit, and not just the dress. And since I am not really into accessories, I decided to use the colors on the look to create a nail art that would tie everything together.
Personally, I think the chocolate color of the nail polish created continuity from top to bottom. It is a subtle contrast to the dress color. Further, I also painted the small flowers using the hues of the dress for coherence.
Photo was taken inside the Church.
In all my nail art designs, I have always strive to achieve clear lines. It has become a personal style. Mainly because I think they look neater that way. I find that it is easier to look at nail designs like that. The reason I'm saying this is because at first, I wanted to paint the floral pattern on my dress into my nails. But that would mean I have to divert to my style. I chose not to because I think it is good to have a personal style. It is sort of your watermark.
I alternated the placement of the flowers in each nail. I chose to paint the tiny flowers near the free edge and near the cuticle area. It makes it more interesting that way. If you are more into consistency, you may choose either. I would probably choose painting the flowers near the cuticle area if I had to choose only one place on my nails.
How do you feel about this matching nail art?
