NOTD: minty graffiti nailart


I made another trip to esNail in Los Angeles and took advantage of the fact that I have 10 nails/fingers…so why not switch up the design and color on each nail! As you probably already know, I like to be inspired by non-nail related things/art/patterns to influence my nail art (like how I got the Carolina Herrera dress print in mani form). This week I was inspired by a black, squiggly, graffiti covered room design from Erland Brand’s exhibition at the Konstakademien in Stockholm (see more graffiti inspirations here) – that Kelly Wearstler posted on Instagram…

I chose to do the graffiti pattern on both of my middle fingers and make it “spring” by pairing it with a light mint green. I also had them finish off the whole mani with a matte topcoat so it looks almost like paper!

I accented with mint colored glitter, a gold bow on one pinkie and star studs on one thumb.

I do love mint as a festive spring color. I have a mint jacket, mint studded shorts, mint pants…I even incorporated the color in a Mr. Kate phone case!  Clearly, it was time for some minty fresh nails! The matte finish is a hip twist on spring colors… what do you think?!

Jewelry featured: Mr. Kate Atlantis Ring, Buried Treasure Ring, Decay Fortune Ring, Seahorse Bangle, and Mummy Snake Bangle and vintage bracelet from my granny.
