Marni inspired nail art: Florals and stripes
Today’s manicure is inspired by Marni’s Spring 2012 Ready To Wear line. Marni did some pretty cool florals that I tried to replicated on my nails:
Also the main reason why I tried this design was cos I recently got my hands on a black nail pen (finally!) from one of the nail stores in town. It’s brandless and cost only S$7 (US$3), quite a steal. I’ve been dying to test it out for about a week but just couldn’t find the time. I also got some new nail colours (Snow and Papaya Punch from China Glaze) that this design was perfect for.
The orange stripes were a fluke to be honest. I wanted to do a tribal pattern with black lines over them at first, but it was my first time with a nail pen and I messed it up so bad. So I improvised and changed it into a floral pattern instead. Turned out quite well, I think!
It was also my first time trying China Glaze’s Snow nail polish. I’d wanted to get Alpine Snow from OPI but it was sold out on the online store that I always get my polishes from. It’s not as opaque as I’d like – had to go over 3 layers to get the white-out look – but it paints on pretty well, so it’s a good buy in my book. Not to mention cheaper as well.
