Already the end of the week! Where did this whole week go? gasp … While I was doing my Fashion Friday mani yesterday, I noticed that something was wrong, and I didn’t love the way it was turning out. So I erased everything and I started looking for a new inspiration. And nothing, absolutely nothing was inspiring me. I even thought of letting it go. But then I thought of these Valentino shoes that I had seen a few months ago. Inspiration was back !

First I had to find the base color that would be similar to the shoes’ one. I wasn’t even sure I had something close to this color. But after digging in my OPI drawers, I found My Paprika is Hotter than Yours, and I felt that it was the one !

Once on my nails I knew it was a perfect match. I think it’s the exact same color as the one on the shoes !

So I applied two coats of  My Paprika is Hotter than Yours and I applied my fast drying top coat. While my nails were drying I prepared the tools I was going to use : a black polish which is Memento Mori by Cirque, My Vampire is Buff by OPI, my dotting tool, some small round stickers and scotch tape.

I sticked the small stickers on my nails and I painted with the black color to create the circle shapes. Then I removed the stickers and applied a little piece of tape to create the beige line. Finally, with a dotting tool, I created the dots over the beige line.

Then with a thin brush, I cleaned up the edges of my circles and my cuticles. I ended with a generous coat of fast drying top coat.

I really love this mani and how it turned on my nails ! I love that you can recreate the design of the shoes in many different ways :)

I hope you’ll like it too !

Have a nice day everyone ! ❤❤
