Sunday Nails - Dark Tropics

8 June 2014
Apart from the usual spring summer trends like pastels and pretty florals there is a new standout trend this season: tropics. Tropical prints are everywhere on the high street this season and while it is unlikely that you will see my sporting the trend through my clothes (colourful clothes aren't typically my thing) I will be working the trend through this bright nail art! 

For a nail art like this to work you need to take your time building up layers of colour using acrylic paints. To create depth in the flowers with every layer of paint use a slighter colour, and strategically place it too create shadows and highlights. While the sounds complicated and time consuming, you don't need to worry about being neat a precise saving a lot of time.

What's your favourite SS14 trend?
