Pretty, not cheesy.
What you will need:
Jin Soon Power Coat Base
Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
Soft bristle brush
1. First things first, Poole began with a base coat of Jin Soon's power coat base. "I love it—it dries quickly, doesn't cause clumping and has algae, biotin and diamond powder in it... very luxurious!" Yeah, you could say that.
2. Now for the hard part: "Then, I painted two coats of CHANEL's Fracas, which has insane coverage—one coat is nearly enough."
"You don't need to be careful, you just need to feel it out."
4. "Next, I used Sally Hansen's Mellow Yellow to paint in the center of each cream flower. Keep this shape organic as well—it doesn't need to be a perfect circle. You can add details and highlights if you're feeling extra ambitious with RGB's Tropic and Vellum on the leaves. Let your nails dry for 5-10 minutes, and [add a] top coat."
“Use polishes with high opacity so your nail doesn’t become to think with layers of paint.”
Oh, and her Fleur du Mal romper isn't exactly her first sartorially-inspired manicure rodeo, either. "I did a replica of a Bottega Veneta floral pattern with burnt orange tips and a Tom Ford purple suede patchwork boot." She also revealed the unlikely places in which she finds inspiration—namely, uh, Cheetos bags. "Of course in fashion, in textile patterns in shoes, bags, jewelry, but literally everywhere else from the packaging of a bag of Cheetos to a rock at the bottom of the ocean."
