NOTD - Missoni inspired nails using Fing'rs

8:16 AM

Just in time for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, here's a designer inspired mani that makes use of three different products - polish, nail transfers and studs!

Having the hand-eye coordination of a hibicus-addled baby sloth, unable to do anything with my oversized claws - 

Seriously, the tree is right there. Why is this so hard for you?

- nail transfers like these ones from Fing'rs (that brand name, I just cannot) are so my kinda vibe. I can have pretty nail art, without the constant rage-tears and steadily escalating profanity that comes with trying to etch teeny weeny little Missoni squiggles across my nail by hand.

I used the Edge Nail tattoos set (A$12.99), which comes with three different types of peel off, stick on transfers and two mini colours. I choose the zig-zag pattern, which you know is meant to be seen as the Missoni design because, c'mon just look at it! The transfers have a clear base, which is different from a lot of similar nail stickers because you can alter the look of them through your choice of base colour. I went for the creamy green then stuck on a few studs from the Edge Heavy Metal Nail Art set (A$12.99) because I'm totally rock, man.

I'm also really liking Fing'rs Edge Ombre sets (A$12.99), each containing five polishes in various gradients of the same colour. So much easier and cheaper than buying five full-size bottles for one manicure look, especially if you have a stupid amount of polishes that you're already battling to get through.

Relevant - Fing'rs have just launched their e-shop and have 30% off all orders. Use discount code 'LAUNCH30' at the check-out to redeem.

It is also my opinion that freestyle nail art must be some kind of skill that's passed down genetically or something. THANKS A LOT, PARENTS. See my Disclaimer for more sexy details.

  1. Those nail stickers are so cool, I've never seen the kind with a clear bit to let your undercoat show through, it's such a good idea to tie it all together. How well do they stay on? I like how you used the pattern on only one nail... all 5 is a bit much if you ask me (besides, then you can make them last SO much longer!). Seriously though, looooove that zigzag design.
    Can you buy these not-online?

  2. I really liked just the feature nail! I know Priceline stocks them and am sure I've also seen them in-store at Big W and maybe K-mart.

  3. Love it!! I've been using the sally Hansen ones, but I love that the base color will show through on these.
