A bunch of my favorite nail art bloggers are doing a fashion week thing (Nail Art Fashion Week), so I figured I’d join in (for a few days at least!). The prompt for day #1 is “favorite fashion designer” which for me is a no-brainer…as I basically only know one fashion designer, Alexander McQueen!
I went browsing through some google images of McQueen dresses, and stumbled on this one. It a wedding gown, but what caught my eye was that VEIL. Since I wanted to play with a new polish I got from the color4nails sale, I figured this would work nicely!
What you see here is two coats of Microcosm by Powder Perfect, a brand that I have never tried before! I love love love the polish brush on this (something I usually don’t comment about) although I did have to pull out a stray bristle before I could use it. The polish was pretty patchy with one coat, but with two it was perfect! I thought I would need a third but I was wrong.
I don’t quite know how to describe Microcosm. Silver-grey holo glitter base with lots and lots of metallic multichrome flakies? Predominately purple/blue, but there are a whole bunch in here. It’s pretty awesome!
To mimic the look of the McQueen dress, I grabbed a swirly lacy stamp (EdM – 17) and a white metallic polish and stamped away! I don’t think I would have paired a white with this polish without the inspiration prompt, but I like the result!
Hope you enjoyed!
