Art Deco Vibe - a Daniel Wellington, Classic Black Sheffield Inspired Look

Hello my friends! I hope that where ever you are, you are having a great day :)

Today I've got a nail art look inspired by one of my favorite watch companies, Daniel Wellington! I have worked with them a few times in the past and I wear their watches almost daily. I love how classy and pulled together I feel when I wear them. They have become my go-to "jewelry"...if a watch can be that.

The latest one I have to share is from their new collection, Classic Black. The defining feature of the collection is a black watch face paired with various DW band styles. I chose the Classic Black Sheffield as I loved the sleek pairing of black on black. The touch of rose gold in the hands and numbers warm the look up and I love it.

I wanted to create a look that felt both sophisticated yet edgy and geometric. What resulted is a bit of an art deco style look and I just absolutely love how it turned out. Considering I haven't painted straight lines like this in a couple months, I was really proud at how steady my hand was.

My original though was to use just black and gold but I found it was lacking "something". Since the watch itself uses rose gold instead of regular gold, I decided to try and tie that in by adding pops of coral in the artwork. I'm so glad I did as I think it adds just enough extra interest to the design.

I used a base of Cirque Color's Memento Mori. It's one of my favorite black polishes and a one coater when you want something quick. The gold is Master's Touch Acrylic paint in, you guessed it, Gold, and the coral is Americana Acrylic paint in Coral Blush.
