Elie Saab-inspired nails

This is a fun abstract design inspired by some of the prints from the Elie Saab spring 2013 show. Their breezy chiffon dresses were made more dramatic with this bold, playful print and they were inspired to translate it into nail art. It's almost like a spring camouflage!

Supplies:

The colors used in this particular design are Essie Turquoise and Caicos, Bikini So Teeny, Haute as Hello and Sand Tropez; Sephora by OPI Hi Def; Piggy Polish You Had Me At Yellow.

Instructions:

1

Base coat

To kick things off, you need to start with a solid base coat of Sand Tropez.

2

Get artistic

Now it's time to let your creative side take over. Add in some abstract splotches of blue. There are no specific rules to how you add the blue — just make sure you have fun with it.

3

Finish up

Now you can add the finishing touches with more splotches in various shapes with each of the remaining colors. Like I said before, the only rule here is that you need to have fun with it.
