Today's design was inspired by a Sophia Webster print which is now being used by Toni&Guy on their products! It's a gorgeous turquoise blue aztec/tribal print which covers the whole wedge heel of the Lula Printed Sandal.
I saw the print on @heatworld's Instagram feed and it caught my eye straight away. I was just looking for some nail art inspiration and it was perfect. I usually resort to black lines when creating an aztec-esque print design but the blue and white looked so fresh and summery I had to try it out. I ended up just using elements from the print, rather than recreating it exactly.
The ring finger is most based on the Sophia Webster print, although I simplified it to just straight edged boxed as my nails are too small for that much detailing! I drew these on freehand with a small brush which explains why they are a bit higgledy piggledy! The index and pinky fingers are just classic aztec inspired designs which link in with the theme, I thought the squares might be a bit much on every nail. I finished off the design with a bit of gold glitter to give it a little sparkle!
I used all Models Own polishes - Coconut Cream for the base, Top Turquoise for the detailing and Bora Bora for the glitter sparkle! I topped it all with a matte top coat to link back into the fabric inspiration. I absolutely love the Coconut Cream and Top Turquoise combo, they are so perfect for summer. Yes, I know we've not quite made it to summer but I'll keep this one in the bank and try some more designs with a similar colour scheme when it's a bit warmer!
Sophia Webster shoes are incredible, full of colour and patterns. We've actually used them as nail inspo before, you can see Emma's Sophia Webster inspired design here. We've also seen other nail bloggers get inspiration from her patterns, Attitude Nails has created some amazing Sophia Webster nails!
Have you ever been inspired by shoes? It seems a strange place to get inspiration from, but we keep an eye out everywhere for fun colour combos and patterns!
