SophyLoveMag1 More Nail Art Goodness From Sophy Robson

Yesterday we showed nail art designer Sophy Robson’s feature with Elle, today a manicure she did for Love magazine. Ooof, this woman is packing when it comes to creativity! One more angle after the flip.

UPDATE: Excellent lifestyle blogger LauraSofiakoski points out in the comments that this pattern is the classic “Unikko” pattern from Finish design company Marimekko. The very delish Ms. Sofiakoski knows a thing or two about nail art. Go check out her “Zipper” nails, which we may just have to devote an entire post to!

UPDATE No. 2: We contacted Sophy and asked her about the Marimekko connection and how the design was inspired. This is what she had to say:

“You are right it is based on Marimeko! The fashion editor I was working with for Japanese Vogue that day was Katie Grand and she asked me to do daisies on the nails. As I had previously worn Murakami daisy manicures on myself, I thought that was what she wanted but it turned out I had read the message wrong. So I quickly looked up Marimekko designs and that is what I came up with. It was easy for me to do as the daisies are bold, block colours.”

Thanks Sophy!
