I chose a Crystal Goddess theme for my Haute Couture look for this week's NTNA Challenge. The task at hand was to sculpt a French manicure onto 5 fingers using only Liquid and Powder Acrylic, and then to transform that same set of nails into a Haute Couture look. When I think of Haute Couture, my mind gravitates to high end, one-of-a-kind, and an over the top presentation to tell a story.
As we are just getting off Fashion Week, I was fueled with inspiration from all of the designer's fashions down to the production of their shows. Typically a nail professional in this position would work with the designer to complement or complete that designer's look. In this case, I am the designer. As such, I will do what I do best and create a story for this Crystal Goddess Set.
With consciousness on the rise, and new energies abundant , people everyday are waking up to their own divinity within. Crystals have been found to be helpful tools in meditation and many other uses. Crystals have become so popular, that people are incorporating them into their everyday fashions to work with crystalline energies and metaphysical properties. Typically found in jewelry, I have adorned my own version of a crystal crown into this Goddess Haute Couture Manicure. May she be a pillar of light as she floats down the runway bringing the gift of enlightenment to whomever may lay their eyes upon her.
