Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2012-Inspired Nails

The sweet vintage poppy print on this Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2012 dress screamed nails to me. I knew the bright abstracted red and yellow flowers would lend themselves to the inexact science of nail art. For the look I started with a base of Essie Chinchilly, then created polka-dots of various sizes with Sally Hansen Lightening yellow and Essie Vermillionaire. Black seedpod and petal details were essential to differentiate each flower. There's something about these flowers that still make me smile.

I'm just dying to know if you're ambidextrous in all things or just nail art. So impressed by your level of detail!
