As well as many nail artists and techs, I follow illustrators and artists for inspiration on Instagram. One such account is @shamekhbluwi, a fashion illustrator. He recently posted a Valentino inspired image and I knew the pattern would make fantastic nail art.
It’s stunning isn’t it?!?
So I started with a white base. I needed a new one so I’m using Rimmel – White Hot Love that I bought in the Boots 3 for 2 offer.
I stuck with just the black and white patterns as I felt adding the extra colours from the background may be overkill. I painstakingly hand painted each line/ square etc with acrylic paint. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I hope you like too xoxo
