Cirque Colors The Manus x Machina Collection - Chalayan Video Dress Nail Art Tutorial

Press sample, Sponsored
Hello lovelies! I'm back with a simple yet (I think!) stunning design using one of the shades from Cirque Colors: Manus x Machina collection and the full Vice 2016 collection. This includes an easy tutorial because the design is so easy to make! If you don't know about this fantastic collection you can read all about it, the inspirations behind each shade, and of course swatches and nail art highlighting each shade: Cirque Colors Manus x Machina
The sort version, this collection was inspired by the materials and production techniques that are explored throughout the exhibit (Manus x Machina) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. You can still see this beautiful exhibition which explores the dichotomy between handmade (manus) and machine-made (machina) in the creation of fashion. This year's exhibit features over 150 pieces of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear dating from the 1880s to present day. I highly recommend it!

 This manicure is inspired by Hussein Chalayan's "Video" dress, autumn/winter 2007-8, Pret-a-Porter
The dress (more images below) is machine-sewn white silk chiffon, heat-set with Swarovski crystals and plain-weave rayon backing; machine-sewn plain-weave rayon, quilted with synthetic batting; machine-sewn synthetic canvas, hand-wired with 15,600 LED lights; machin-sewn cheesecloth backing with hand-stitched electronic circuit boards; black plastic neckpiece; aluminum and resin chest piece with synthetic grosgrain ribbon
 15,600 LED LIGHTS. HAND-WIRED. < That is my own dramatic emphasis. Wow. This dress.

 The Vice 2016 collection does not disappoint. I used all of them (if you see shades not in bottles, it's because I mixed some a bit)

 The manicure begins with Cirque Colors Holdfast Base Coat and 2 coats of Carpe Diem. Once moderately dry I randomly dotted on all 5 of the deliciously bright shades in the Vice 2016 collection.

 One shade at a time, I "blended" out using a tiny nail art brush dipped in pure acetone. I just wanted to create edges for the dots that were not so crisp.

 After each shade's dots were softened, I made sure the brush was thoroughly clean. Then I moved on to adding acetone to the next shade.

 Once the dots and acetone was complete, I added one coat of the Manus x Machina Ultrasonic - A sheer linen-white inspired by designer toiles which serve as working prototypes for finished fashion designs. This foundational shade pays homage to the creative process, providing buildable coverage and a perfect blank canvas for nail art.

 This shade is so easy to work with and goes on without any streaking, builds in opacity with each coat, so it's perfect for jelly sandwiches (remember those?), pond manis, and this mani!

 Yep. I love it.

 In the photo above I have topped it with Cirque Colors Matte Look Top Coat. This was my favorite!!
