In the second part of this challenge we were asked to rework the French Nails into a Haute Couture Masterpiece.
Haute couture to me means High Fashion, one of a kind design. I wanted them to have a very luxurious feel, which is why I chose the bronze and rose gold color palette.
My inspiration came from images of European haute couture dresses. I embellished the nails with rose gold foil, swarovskis and studs, a bronze acrylic rose and some black acrylic ruffles.
I really enjoyed making these nails, and I actually found it hard to take my eyes off them!

Here I covered the white acrylic with foil glue. I then used rose gold foil. I used black gel polish to define the smile line.
