TMH Fashion Week : Matthew Williamson

So hello and welcome to this week's new series : Try My Hand Fashion Week ! I have a full seven days, from Monday to Sunday (whilst I'm preparing my move to uni in the UK), of nail art inspired by fashion designers either fresh from the runway at New York fashion week, or way back from Spring 2012 ! So prepare yourselves for a week of funky prints and bright patterns, it's TMH Fashion Week !

Yeah ! Hey everyone, it's day three of the series ! I hope you're enjoyed seeing all my different interpretations of looks on the runways, old and new ! Today's featured designer is a British designer, so one who will be appearing this week at London Fashion Week (but I obviously did these designs during New York Fashion Week, so I couldn't put any of his new collection in), it's Matthew Williamson !

So you may be able to tell from the long nails in this photo that this was the first design I decided to recreate ! It's a pretty rough interpretation of the original look, but I think it's pretty close, given the tools I have and the polishes I own (can you believe I don't own any orangey-red polishes ?) ! This design is from Fall 2012 by the way, just in case you didn't see it in the corner of the image !

The polishes I used for this design were Barry M Bright Purple for the base, I would have been better off with a more reddish-purple, or even with more stripes on top of the base colour, but oh well ! For the stripes I used OPI Big Apple Red, P2 Hug Me ! and OPI Skull and Glossbones. All I basically did was paint the different coloured stripes in different directions to eachother, and I do really like how it turned out, even though it's really quite different to the original design.

And that's it for today guys ! I hope you liked my loose interpretation of this design ! I can tell you it took forever to do (partly because I was watching a marathon session of Desperate Housewives on TV, but that's beside the point) but I think it was definitely worth it ! Come back tomorrow for more fashion nail art !

Enjoy your day !


  1. I LOVE these! The colors fit so perfectly together. I should definitely try something like this.
