Project Runway

7:00 AM



I don't know about you, but I'm just a little obsessed with Project Runway.  I've been watching since the very first season and I've just always really enjoyed it.  Fashion goes hand in hand with nail art many times and just like the beauty and nail industry, fashion is always changing.  It's something that we can all relate to: having our very own personal style.  I love that you can play with fashion and make it your own and the idea that you can give sixteen people the very same task and no two will do it alike.  My favorite's were Jeffery and Christian (of COURSE Christian) and without much failure I've predicted nearly every winner from the get go.  This year I haven't really got any favorites yet although Buffi really makes me laugh and Kooan...well...there is Kooan.  So this year I decided to do something I've wanted to do for awhile now and challenge myself to play along with the contestants with my very own 'nailway'!  I got a little behind due to some seriously crazy personal things going on BUT I'm back on track and ready for action!  Above you'll find my episode one nails.  I chose to replicate Kooan's design for the first episode who's challenge was to make a companion piece for a garment they had brought from home and show them in Time's Square.  Obviously...this look did not win!  But it didn't' lose either!  I love the Japanese/Harajuku look and I think this is really fun and interesting.  I'd never wear it as is but the idea of the mixed patterns and textures is really cool.  I did a matte leopard background with some sponging and then a grey panel with blue dots to represent the jumper Kooan paired with his leopard top.  Below you'll find my nails from episode two.  Episode two was the unconventional materials challenge and they  had to make a look out of candy.  I REALLY loved Sonjia's look for this challenge! But I chose to do a look based on the winner's dress instead because I loved the subtlety of it and also it reminded me a little of one of my favorite Disney films, Beauty and The Beast! :P

  4. Just come across your blog so been looking through some over your older posts your very talented, i like lots of the designs you've come up with and you have a very nice nail varnish collection. I can also see how the dress reminded you of beauty and the beast, looks a bit like the stained glass windows when when the fairy (or whatever she was haha) turns him into a beast and gives him the rose x
