MANICURE MUSE: Peter Som Resort ‘13
For those of you who fancy lace, you’ll love Peter Som’s Resort ‘13 collection. For me, it’s always been a tricky fabric to wrap my head around. Somehow I gravitate towards the bold and graphic, and steer clear of vintage frill. With that said, Peter Som has made me a believer. The collection as a whole is a wanderlust trip to Morocco, described by Som as “nomad-chic.” The shades of blue in Moroccan-inspired prints are a trip themselves, but it’s how he translates them into his signature tailoring that keeps the collection grounded and new. Demure Chantilly lace makes a breathtaking statement because of it’s fine craftsmanship, but its the bold-colored lace that makes the Ladyfinger statement.
To emulate this look, I used Trout Pout by Butter London, Baby Blue Color Club Nail Art Duo, and a black Sally Hansen nail art pen.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Start with a full light pink nail
2. With a light blue nail art pen or brush, draw an “X” in squiggles and loops
3. Using your black nail art pen, draw squiggles and loops in a triangle shape with the point facing towards the center
4. Repeat on the other side
5. Top it off with top coat
