spring fashion fun



You can create this design with both Gel polish and regular nail polish.
I’m trained in Gel Polish application and use this method on my own nails as it lasts much longer than regular polish.

As Spring is on our doorstep I was feeling the urge to create something fresh and simplistic!
Nude nails go with any outfit, and the nautical stripes add a subtle ‘fashion’ element without being over the top.

I wore this design on my nails last year and received SO many compliments, so I knew I just had to share the ‘how-to’ with you all.

Is the macaroni back?

For starters I have to say that I’m not a fan of Moschino and that I don’t like (at all) Jeremy Scott’s work. Is SO not my stuff, sorry not sorry.

Anyway, the spring 2016 menswear collection is CLEARLY inspired by the 18th century macaroni: ruffs, brocades, contrasting colours, textures, beauty marks and roll above the ears.

I have to say that this collection is far from the elegance and beauty from the spring 2011 Yohji Yamamoto one (I should make a post for that collection too!), but as the macaroni, this Moschino one is fun and colourful, it doesn’t take itself very seriously (very Moschino attitude) and is more for a show than for the streets.
