Spanish brand Desigual continued its awesome nail art streak at the A/W 2015 show with a look that was “inspired by an artist’s sketch board, mood board, color stains and brush strokes”. To get the vibrant artsy look, manicurist Keri Blair first mixed M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquers in Before Dawn, Vestral White and Quiet Time for a khaki, grey-green base color before adding layers of gouache paint with a fan brush, toothpicks, mascara wands and straws. Next, she applied M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquer in Sparkledust using a dry-brush technique and finished with M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquers in Nocturnelle and Vestral White for extra texture and dimension.
