Our cover artist Chelsea King walks you through the steps of a simpler version of the alternate cover nails.
It started with this dress.
Because our January/February 2015 cover artist, Chelsea King (@chelseaqueen), is a maestro of translating runway looks to nail art, we tasked her with producing two different catwalk-inspired cover looks. This dress by Bibhu Mohapatra struck a chord with King; the mash-up of a graphic black-and-white pattern with feminine blue roses created a tension that King couldn’t wait to reproduce on nails.
Of course, doing your own spin on a runway look requires a few twists. King decided to reverse the black-and-white pattern to allow the nails to pop more for the cover.
She then places blue roses on only a few nails, which made the blossoms seem even more prominent.
Though the final look didn’t make our cover, we want to share how to get an easier version of this design with you! Follow these easy step-by-steps and then show us your mani on Instagram (tag #nailitdaily)!
