Mani Muse: Miu Miu F/W 2015

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails



Today’s mani muse was inspired by Miu Miu F/W 2015 runway collection.

For a while now i’ve been wanting to try a herringbone nail art design, so after seeing this collection i was immediately inspired!
Yes.. i know the fashion is for fall.. but it works so well with the colors for spring!
So, of course, loving the colors and print combo i decided to take a stab at it!  Take a look at the steps below…

Here’s what you’ll need:

The Tools

Off White Nail Polish:  Tuck it in my Tux by Essie
Coral:  Azature Coral
Turquoise Blue:  Garden Variety by Essie
Small nail art striping brush

Step 1:  Start off with solid cream nails.  I used Tuck it in my Tux by Essie.


Step 2:

  • Animal Print: Use Garden Variety and your striping brush to make a few small irregular shapes and curves for the animal print.
  • Herringbone: Use your striping brush and a coral nail polish and paint a few small square shapes in a row.  Leave some space between the squares.


Step 3:

  • Herringbone: Use your striping brush and make two small diagonal lines at the top left corner of each box.




Step 4:

  • Herringbone: Next fill in those small diagonals by making them a little thicker on the sides.  Also add another diagonal line at the bottom left of the box and the top right.


Step 5:  Lastly create your plaid over the herringbone.  Using Garden Variety make a few small diagonal lines in a row up the center of your nail and then the same going across your nail.

Seal in your design with your favorite dry fast top coat & Voilla!
