So I dug into my closet and found this peach turtle-neck dress. But I didn't have shoes to match so I dug deeper and found a royal blue (somewhat) dress that I think was appropriate for the occasion. I instantly knew what nail design I wanted after that.
Here is what I came up with:
Porcelain Look Nail Art Design by Simply Rins
I have always wanted to try a porcelain look nail art and I figured I found the perfect opportunity to finally get into it. Since it was a semi-formal event, I decided to create accent nails and just leave the rest of the nails in plain color.
Background color is Revlon 730 Royal from the Top Speed Collection in 2 coats. I reviewed and swatched some polishes from the same collection here.
I hand painted the nail design using blue acrylic paint and a detailing nail art brush.
And this was the outfit I matched the nail art to:
I know that the design is not actually the usual one you'd see on porcelains, this is the reason I titled it like so. But the shade of blue over an almost white background gives it a similar feel and I really liked it. It is subtle and classy for the occasion.
When I first started creating freehand nail art designs, I was very fond of accent nails. I think it is a good choice during formal events. For this particular design, I made 2 accent nails, one on each hand. If you have been a follower of this blog for some time, you probably have noticed that I shifted my accent nail on my right hand from the ring finger to the pointer. I realized it was more interesting that way. ;)
This nail design is actually a clutter of blue flowers. But I think whatever you paint using the background color and a royal blue paint will give you a porcelain look. On top of my mind right now are swirls. I think that would look fab.
What do you think? :)
