Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 Inspired Nails

I have been browsing all the beautiful Resort 2013 collections on Style.com. There are a lot of great prints that I'd like recreate into nail art like these Marc Jacobs dresses. I liked the one on the right because of the mint color. Here's my interpretation:

I used:
  • Essie's "Candy Mint Apple"
  • Essie's "Off the Shoulder" which I received as a Klout perk!
  • Essie's "Cute As A Button"
  • Kiss Nail Art Paint Brush in White
  • Tools: Sponge & bobby pins 

I cut a makeup songe very finely to help create the white cloud looking dots as a starting point.

I then used the tip of a bobby pin to create the pink and coral dots.

I tried to follow the pattern with it getting more clustered at the top. It turned out a little different looking but think it's still a cute summer look:

What's on your nails this week?
