Nail Art Weekly Project - Week One, An Outfit

Hello my lovelies! Today I am excited to share with you my first post for the #nailartweeklyproject that Danni at gingerbread smiles is hosting. The idea is that each week you are given a theme, and you have to create a nail art look based on that theme each week. Monday marked the first day of the project and the first theme is a mani based on an outfit or item of clothing, so I just had to choose my favourite item of clothing in the whole of my wardrobe: my red velvet leggings.
These leggings are absolutely gorgeous and I actually find them really easy to pair up with a lot of different looks. So wanna see the results I came up with for my mani?

I stuck with OPI's Vodka and Caviar on every nail and then made my ring finger an accent nail using some velvet powder intended for manicures that I picked up on eBay. They're basically a copy of the Ciate velvet powders, just a fraction of the price! I had so much fun with this manicure and it surprisingly wore really well. If you'd like any more information about how to create this, let me know in the comments and I'll go into more detail :)

Thanks for reading!
