If your anything like me, you will love the newest Rihanna music video, 'We found love'.
The video has an amazing grunge-y vibe which of course contains plenty of distressed denim. Now, this may seem slightly weird but i ADORE the distressed look, in particular in denim. (i think it's my inner fashion design freak coming through!) My absolute fave type of distressed denim is acid wash and as you can see from the pictures above, Rihanna rocks this so well in her video.
I was re-doing my manicure last night and was a bit stuck as to what design to go with (believe it or not, i didn't feel like leopard print again this week!) so i thought why not take inspiration from my current favourite music video and create my very own acid wash nails.
First of all i took a denim blue colour (Models Own- Feeling Blue) as a base and left to dry. Any typical denim colour is fine, blues, black, greys. You don't even have to stick with those, any colour would work since it looks like a tie dye pattern too.
I then painted a thin layer of white nail polish over the top (Barry M- Matt White) and again left to completely dry.
Once dry, i got a cotton bud soaked in nail polish remover and began to remove the white layer of polish. Try not to rub too much in the same spot as you don't want to remove the blue.
Once you are happy with the pattern, apply a top coat. I used my E.L.F Matte top coat to make it look even more grunge-y and i LOVE the outcome.
Such a unique yet easy nail design. Will you be giving it a go?
