I fell in love with the Dolce Gabbanas runway collection "roses and cherubs". The collection was so richly boroque, featuring detailed gold embroidery, delicate laced dresses, and rich velvets. Its stunning details created a mood of romantic decadence. I could just live in these clothes everyday! I would literally go to the grocery store in this couture.
Straight off the catwalk I took this look as my inspiration for my first nail tutorial. I wanted to create a design that was more of an impressionist technique that could easily be adopted by any skill set. With less strict detailing in the nail design one could re-create this look easily and have more fun applying it.
I used several colors from the GILTY GIRL COLLECTION, including ENIGMA, ENTREPRENEUR, VOLATILE , PARAGON, and DRYAD. I used tiny art brushes in various sizes to create tiny strokes. These brushes can be found easily at any craft store such as Micheal's.
I wanted to also note that although it did not show up in the video, DRYAD ( a beautiful lush green) is accented with glitter and 24kt gold flake and powder. The effect was just beautiful for this botanical design!
