I can’t believe the final day is here (well it was actually two days ago but never mind…)! After an intense July of doing my nails almost every day, the OMD3 31 Day Challenge has finally come to an end (don’t worry if you haven’t caught up, you actually have until August 5th to enter your designs in the inlinkz). On August 7th, we’ll announce the PRIZE WINNERS! So exciting!!!

For the final prompt of the challenge, we chose a third hashtag – #mynailsandmyperfume.

While I never used to be a perfume lover (I’m very sensitive to strong scents), since I got more into beauty blogging and have been exposed to more fragrances (b/c that’s what we call perfume in the ‘industry’), I’ve actually developed a love for them. While there are certainly strong scents that still put me off, or give me a headache, there are some fragrances that really do work for me.

One of my favourites is Prada Candy. Hence, this is the fragrance that I chose to inspire #mynailsandmyperfume.prada, prada candy, prada perfume, prada nails, prada nail art, negative space nails, negative space nail art, perfume nails, perfume nailart, tape nail art

Like most things ‘PRADA’, the design of the Prada Candy bottle is beautiful – a sophisticated gold and pink glass bottle with a black and gold lid. The scent itself does resemble sweet candy, though, oddly this scent does work for most people. I have two sisters who are very particular with fragrances, and PRADA CANDY is also a favourite of theirs.

I chose to replicate the design of the bottle with some negative space nailart with gold striping tape.

I used essie licorice (black), Sephora by OPI What Aura Gonna Wear? (pink), OPI 50 Years of Style (gold) and gold striping tape to create the look. prada, prada candy, prada perfume, prada nails, prada nail art, negative space nails, negative space nail art, perfume nails, perfume nailart, tape nail art

Like Prada Candy itself, I think this manicure is sexy, sophisticated and can be worn by almost anyone who is looking to be a little daring.

Stay tuned for the winners of the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge in a few days. I also hope to put together a roundup post for my own 31 designs.

Until next time,

nail that accent
