Martin Margiela Inspired Nail Art: DIY

Love the Margiela look but can't afford the price tag? Take some inspiration from manicurist extraordinaire Sophie Harris-Greenslade of the blog The Illustrated Nail who took the situation into her own hands and came up with an inventive Martin Margiela-inspired nail art.

Known for avant-garde designs and minimalism, Margiela never puts his name on the inside of a garment. His simple numbering system, however, has become recognizable in its own right and sets Sophie's hands above the rest.

Give it a try this weekend and if you are in London this September, check out Sophie's nail art exhibit at Degree Art Gallery on Vyner Street in East London where her work will be displayed alongside the designs of other nail artists including Sophy Robson and Marian Newman.

Here are some products that will help you get the Margiela look:
