Gucci Spring 2011 Inspired

image

For this look, I was inspired by this pants suit featured in Gucci‘s runway show in Milan for their Spring 2011 line. When I was looking for inspiration for nail art, this look stood out among many of the other spring/summer fashion lines I googled.

This suit in particular covers so many trends in such a fun and classy way: it’s menswear-inspired; the high-waist, tapered leg of the pant is reminiscent of the 70s as are the 70s-glam-inspired clutch/belt; and the colors (which are color-blocked – another spring/summer trend) are both flattering and fashionable for the season. Are there any other trends that I missed? There is a lot going on this this look but I think Gucci pulled it off incredibly well.

This nail design was an intentional optional illusion (unlike the Two Spring Trends In One post). I wanted it to look green/gold from one side, orange/gold from the other, and all 4 colors when viewing it directly from the top. I used Orly Green With Envy and Luxe (for the gold stripes) and China Glaze Orange Knockout and Purple Panic.

I hope you folks enjoy this one.  Look out for more gold-accented manicures this week… 😀

P.S. I recently purchased CND’s Stickey base coat and Super Shiney High-Gloss top coat. This is the first blog post where I’ve used a different base and top coat than my traditional Orly Bonder and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat…I’ll have to see how they hold up.

  1. This is the right web site for anybody who really wants to find out about this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I
    really would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a new
    spin on a subject which has been discussed for ages. Great stuff, just excellent!

  2. There was no problem using the return as the item
    was unworn. A man who likes to wear jewelry may appreciate the Tiffany
    Metropolis Link Bracelet.

  3. Louis Vuitton also designed classical satchels for some sort of spring/summer 2012 calendar
    year. Do not heavy prices in designer handbags and purses!
    At the moment more and more people prefer style to practical use of a bag.

    There are furthermore extensive instructions to
    work with felting and flooding. http://www.louisvuittongekiyasu.

  4. Piece of writing writing is also a fun, if you be familiar
    with after that you can write otherwise it is complex to write.
