NYFW: Graffiti Nails (Inspired by CND/ Creatures of the Wind)

Hello beautiful! I'm continuing on with the latest nail trends and fashion inspired nail art from New York Fashion Week 2013. I was really amazing by this simple yet stunning and artistic nail art design developed by CND for the Creatures of the Wind fall 2013 collection.

This CND designed manicure was inspired by urban art from the 80's. It's like graffiti nails. It's really simple to do for yourself. Here's how I created mine.



Get the look:
1. Start off with a base coat and a neutral base colour like NYX Cosmetics The Taupe. I used two coats for an opaque finish.
2. Choose complimentary colours for your graffiti. You want pops of colour. For precise lines, use either stripper brushes or nail art pens to create zig zag lines to the nail. Stick to the left side of the nail bed.
The lines should be in different colours and should overlap for more depth of the design. I used Sally Hansen nail art pen in Blue and Black, L.A.Colors Art Deco in Sapphire and Red.
3. Allow to dry properly and then seal in your design with a top coat!



 
Hope you enjoyed!
Happy Graffiti!
