NCC presents: Male inspired fashion nail art

Time for my 3rd inspired by fashion manicure for the Nail Challenge Collaborative. I decided for some male fashion and found something geometrical which I figured would look cool on the nails.

Design by Philip Lim (2015), source of image here.

To the nail art then, I was mostly inspired by the outfit of the gentlemen to to left and also found it to be fun if I could implement some negative space nail art, partly inspired by the gap on his knees and also that black thick line. So, on with striping tape which I later realized was too thin but also colored off some silver onto the nail art, which made it even less of a negative space.. For the rest of the nail art, it was mainly making freehand lines, which I'm usually quite good at, but I got a bit disappointed because both my black and white fineliners decided to die the thickness death while painting this so everything got a bit thicker and less crisp than I wanted. Still, not the worst thing I've ever done and geometrical is kinda fun to play around with. What do you think?

  7. Jättehäftig manikyr, däremot ger jag inte mycket för kläderna, inte alls min stil ;). Tycker dina linjer ser lika fina ut som vanligt.
