Louis Vuitton Spring 2012-Inspired Nails

With spring in the air, I wanted to take a collection that felt like it really embodied the season. The sweet oversized eyelet lace in Louis Vuitton's Spring 2012 collection hit that mark to pastel perfection. To capture the look I painted a few nails with pastel shades and left a few bare. Then I painted different eyelet patterns on each nail. To get the eyelet, I made groups of flowers and teardrops--some filled in, some not. On the bare nails I went over the eyelet with sheer pastels to capture the different layers of sheer fabric that Marc Jacobs used.

Some of the polishes that I used are Migi nail art pens, Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Air, OPI Hey! Get in Lime! and Essie Haute as Hello and Demure Vixen
