2013 Runway Nail Designs

Nail ART.


My new addiction. Unsurprisingly, since I LOVE anything that involves being creative.

I have been experimenting with various nail polish colours and acrylic paints.

Today's nails are inspired by a popular runway trend : TRIANGLES starting at the bottom of the nails.

The colours on the runway were mostly comprised of bright colours. The actual triangle being YELLOW in particular. It's very simple and has been around for a long time. My nails are still quite short while the models sporting these had longer nails, making the triangular shape longer as well.

But alas, here is my take:

How I did it:

Nail Polishes used:

- Lady in Red by REVLON's Charlie
- The nude colour is by SINFUL COLOURS (sorry the exact name of the colour came off and I can't    remember it)
- Orange by REVLON


- Paint all your nails, except the ring fingers with the LADY IN RED.
- Paint the ring fingers with the NUDE.
- Take the NUDE and paint triangles on the nails painted with the LADY IN RED (you can either use the tape method to achieve clean lines, or free-hand it like I did. I used a thin paint brush as the actual nail polish brushes would be too thick. As you can see, mine looks a bit untidy because I used the free-hand method.)
- Take the LADY IN RED and paint the triangle on the nails painted in NUDE.
- Take the ORANGE and paint the chevron stripe on top of the LADY IN RED triangle (BUT LEAVING A SPACE THE SAME WIDTH AS THE CHEVRON STRIPE BETWEEN THE TWO) on the ring fingers.
- Finish off with a top coat (which I did not have)

And you're DONE!

Hope you like it and come back for more, as I will be doing this on a regular basis!

Much Love
