For Antipodium we were playing around with the idea of a houndstooth print nail but we wanted to create a twist on the design to give it more of a modern edge.
I created the deconstructed houndstooth print, an enlarged abstract take on the print using ORLY’s Smoky collection.
We painted the deconstructed houndstooth straight on top of a natural nail base so we could see the natural nail peeping through giving it a cut out effect. We finished the look with a top coat to give it a high shine. Each model was painted with an individual take on the houndstooth mixed in with full cover nails of the smoky collection colours.
