For to the second “Trendy 30th” I decided to take inspiration from one of my favorite pieces of Perinola, its Celis jacket form “Luna en Ceylon” Collection. I absolutely love it, but I have to admit that replicating the design on my nails was a big challenge, because the jacket has many tones of purple in a pattern with a lot of detail.
June is known for being the scleroderma awareness month, a rare sickness that so far doesn’t have a cure. There’s a lot of hopeful people who wont give up to this adversity, just like Margara Gamboa, a woman (who I haven’t met in person) what has been an example of perseverance and optimism for me, so I Wear Teal.
I must confess, this design wasn’t planned at all, in fact, it was the result of trying to fix some squares that didn’t look as good as expected. In top of that, I had a Lunch at my boyfriend’s (that’s why you can see so few pictures of the final result) so basically, what you see is the outcome of an against-the-clock process. I present to you, my Squaries.
Well “if you can’t beat them, join them” and that’s exactly what I did, use the actual fever for the FIFA World Cup as an opportunity to make a new design (although I’m not exactly a soccer fan).
For me is really important to try doing designs that look gorgeous but that doesn’t mean that it has to be a difficult one, for that reason in this opportunity I use the best technique to keep it simple and beautiful: the french mani! The only secret is not being shy with colors, try anything that comes to your mind.
I fell in love whit this amazing purple polish from Urban Outfitters, it shines by itself, so my first decision was to paint my nails with it, however I couldn’t resist the temptation to put a little extra something to make them more vibrant; I know, I know… I have to learn to control my impulses, but you have to admit in this case it was the right choice.
