The Digit-al Dozen does Fashion Week: Paul's Boutique

Ah I am so excited to share with you some great manicures this week based around fashion with the lovely ladies in The Digit-al Dozen!

Today's manicure is based off the brand Paul's Boutique which is one of my fav (affordable) brands. I own five handbags  by this brand and love them all dearly. Today's manicure is actually based on a jacket that they do as I wanted to try out the quilting method.

 

You will have to ignore my first finger as I somehow managed to mess it up a bit. For this manicure I followed this tutorial.
  

I used Barry M Shocking Pink and once my first coat was dry I applied a second coat and a good layer of matte topcoat. I left to to semi-dry for about 4-5 minuets and then used a teeth flossing thingy (what are they actually called? You can see what it is exactly in the video) I scored a criss-cross pattern into my nails to created a 'quilted effect'. 
  

I actually found this more difficult than you would think. The polish has to be at a very specific stage of dryness. Too wet and it leaves strings and too dry and you can't get a good imprint. 

My accent nail is the Paul Boutique iconic badge which you find on most of their products. I used Barry M Matt White and the Black and Pink Nail Art Pens to create this.


Overall I am fairly happy with this manicure and know that I will be trying it again to try and master this technique. I think it represents the jacket pretty well.

You can check out what the rest of the Dozen are doing for fashion week below by following the links. I will be back tomorrow with another fashion inspired post!

  13. Thanks for share this post I also share with you something hope you like my post. Combining white shirt with a pair of jeans normal or torn is a pretty common way. You can try it but it will better if you tried something new other than just a plain old pair of blue jeans. That’s pretty much old now. Even if you do want to wear a pair of jeans with your white shirt then it would be good if avoided the regular light blue and torn one. Dark blue shade or grey or even blackish jeans will do the trick. You can also go all white with a hint of black combining your white shirt with your white denim and give some hints of black such as wearing a black belt, shades and sandals with your full white look. You can also add a black leather handbag as a complimenting accessory. Speaking of leather you can get a pair of leather pants with your white shirt and some high heel leather boots to give you a hot look.To achieve a little more stylish look, you can pull a black jacket on as well along with your white shirt and leather pants.Thanks
