Coachella Inspired Herringbone Nails with Zoya and CND Vinylux
Around this time of the year I love looking at all the bright, bold and geometric nails that people have put together for Coachella. In that spirit I’ve decided to share some nails that I put together a little while ago featuring a bright mix of colours and a herringbone design. I’m not a music festival type of person but if I was I would definitely rock a look like this when I went!
To get this look I started with a base of Essie Blanc and then did a quick dry brush with most of the shades from the CND Vinylux Garden Muse Collection. When that was dry I used my Julep Plié Wand and striping brush along with Zoya Noot to freehand a colour blocked herringbone design. It was super simple to do and I'm in LOVE with how it turned out!
Doing a dry brush design is such a quick and gorgeous way to do a base for a design. I like how using multiple colours results in some overlap which makes even more colours!
I'm excited to head into spring and summer. It means I can pull out all my bright and bold colours, and I feel I'm also more interested in doing fun patterns on my nails during the summer. In the winter I tend to stick with bold lines and deep colours. What about you?
Definitely loving how these nails turned out, even if I didn't go to Coachella and don't currently have any festivals lined up. I can live vicariously through my nails! ;)
Thanks for visiting!
