Fashion Inspired – Alessandro Dell Acqua for NAFW2016

I know I’m a bit late to the party, and completely missed the start of this challenge, but I decided I’d since I was already seeking fashion inspo for my next mani, that I may as well join the last part of the Nail Art Fashion Week 2016. This #NAFW2016 prompt was April 16 – Fall 2016 Dress. The objective was to create a design inspired by a dress or garment seen on the Fall 2016 runways

I’ll keep the post fiarly short as this was yesterday’s prompt & I’m obvs behind, but I chose to recreate Alessandro Dell Acqua’s thrift-store chic slouch knit sweater. Very Kurt Cobain-esque, but I liked the ‘sunset and palms’ print and wanted to recreate that look.

I created a gradient using a myriad of colours (listed below) adding the details with a mix of liner brush and decal, then top coating with gloss for the finished look. Liking how they turned out.
