For me “Haute Couture” means high fashion. It includes different standards, different vision, unusual shapes, forms, solutions and of course luxury lifestyle. It includes too much of everything, it’s not for usual people, they will not understand it.
It’s impossible to be indifferent to high fashion. You either understand it or not. Couture creations can not be restrained, they are piece of art and individual vision of beauty of it’s creator.
In my work I mixed all of this components – extreme length, luxury, a lot of expensive parts. As you can see I used chains, wire, polymer clay, studs etc. The goal of this nails is not to be loved by everyone but only by those who understand them.
About the colors – I tried to make everything as fancy as possible so I started with white (since it’s pink & white contest). So what’s the fanciest color? Of course it’s gold! Plus I added some red accents to it to make my design complete.
I absolutely adore final look of my nails and hope you’ll be able to judge it and see all of my passion in it.
Finally I had some free days (not like previous 3 weeks) to dedicate myself to this contest, pushed myself to the limit and make a result I’m proud of.
