Eve Gravel Inspired Nail Art

April 14, 2015 / by Liz

I wanted to paint my nails with a fun pattern that reminded me of spring… and the inspiration came in the form of one of my favourite Eve Gravel dresses. (Absolutely love this Canadian clothing brand! In fact, I have two Eve Gravel dresses in my capsule wardrobe for spring.)

I started by picking out polishes that matched the dress colours. The polishes I used were a mixture of Essie, Butter London, and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel.

1 - The Inspiration

After prepping my nails, I painted two coats of the peachy-pink base colour.

2 - BAse Colour

Now for the fun part :) With a fine nail art brush, and using only one colour at a time, I swiped on polish in a (very) messy chevron-shape. I wasn’t too concerned about making it perfect, since the pattern on the fabric looks a little like messy brush strokes¬†anyway.

3 - Add Pattern

Rather than just dipping the brush into the polish as I usually would, I wiped most of the excess polish off the brush before painting it onto to my nails, since I wasn’t really looking for solid lines.

4 - Just a Little Paint

Then, just continue with all the other colours!

5 - All Colours

6 - Finished Nails

7 - All Finished Nails

I really loved painting this design, and surprisingly, it took no time at all! Love my nails almost as much as the dress :)
