Fashion Inspo: Versace

Today's mani is a little unusual, a bright and bold mix and match with a variety of patterns! If you hadn't guessed it was inspired by an outfit post I spotted on Instagram by @versace_official. The skirt and jacket combo had a really eye catching colour scheme and the patterns were so snazzy that I saved the photo for future inspiration. The start of the Fashion Week period seemed the perfect excuse to give it a go! We love Fashion Week season as Instagram is chock-a-block with inspiration, so many patterns and colour mixes that we can recreate or use to influence our designs. This outfit is slightly nuts but it's so simple to take small elements and mix them into a cute mani. Plus, you already know that the patterns will work together so there's not the usual mix and match mani risk element to consider! I pulled out the stripes, chevron type things and the Greek-esque banding for today's design.

The feature colour in this mani is definitely Models Own - Bikini, it's just so damn bright!! I teamed it with Black and Matt White from Barry M. As soon as I saw the pastel yellow mixed with black and white on the outfit I knew exactly which colours I want to use. I've been itching to use Bikini all winter and teaming it with monochrome seemed to make it slightly more acceptable! I started with a white base for all the nails except my pinky. I then used a small brush and some striping tape to add the detailing. I won't go through how I created each nail as that could get a bit dull. If you would like to know how to recreate any of these patterns just let us know in the comments and we'll be happy to help! 

Do you get as excited as we do about Fashion Week? There is just so much going on we can't help getting caught up in the drama - especially when Kimye Junior has a full blown tantrum in the frow!

We'd love to know which designers inspire you most, in whatever you love to do, not just nail art!
