NAFW 2016 Day 5 - Style Icon: Cate Blanchett, with China Glaze, KBShimmer and Whats Up Nails

Press sample
Hi everyone! Bringing you Day 5 of the Nail Art Fashion Week 2016 (#NAFW2016) challenge despite it being officially over already. Today's look I actually did last..because I just knew I'd love them and not want to take them off! I was right! I'm still wearing these right now! I chose Cate Blanchett seen here wearing Maison Martin Margiela, as my style icon this year because not only is she elegant and classy, she often pushes the envelope and dares to wear designs with an edge to them and in my opinion she always pulls it off!

 I was able to create this awesome design using Whats Up Nails 
Honeycomb Nail Vinyls.

 I know the colors aren't exactly right, but these new China Glaze Summer 2016 shades: Lime After Lime, Lip Smackin' Good, and None Of Your risky Business were sitting on my desk begging to be used and I love the way it turned out.
 I started with 2 coats of the amazing KBShimmer Diamond and then Clearly On Top. After I applied the Whats Up Nails vinyl to dry nail, I used a small nail art brush to dab each China Glaze shade in, creating a somewhat patchy look. This was intentional to dull out the shade and let the blingy glitter base come through under the colors. It worked out exactly as I'd hoped.
 This shade is so so grown up blingy it was hard to photograph and looks amazing as the base for this design, if I do say so :P
