Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Nail Art


I got to go to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met in Manhattan a few weeks ago. It was so amazing that I went through twice! I used Dress 13 for this manicure.

I love how this one turned out! I used Color Club Pretty In Platinum for the base. Next I made Will splatter Maybelline Matte Grey & Pure Ice Wild Thing all over my nails. I've used this technique before for my Dexter nails & my Point Blank Design nails. Super fun & super messy! I topped it off with a coat of ManGlaze Matte-astrophe.

Thanks for reading!

  8. @ Breigh I literally just stuck my hand inside a box and then had my boyfriend flick or fling the polish onto my hand. If you search other blogs for Dexter nails you'll find lots of other great ideas though.
