Runway Nails: Bottega Veneta F/W 2012

I've been lacking some inspiration with my nails lately and decided to take a page out of some of my favorite nail bloggers books and look to the runways for a little help. While paging through many a September issue I kept coming across a Bottega Veneta ad with this gorgeous pink and black dress. After seeing this ad in at least 4 magazines, I decided it was my next nail DIY. Check out the quick tutorial below. What runway looks are inspiring you? 
Choose color palette. Paint Nails base color.
Once base color is dry, paint accent color over nail. While nail is wet, use plastic wrap to give nail a ink blot effect by dapping over wet polish.
Dot second accent color on nail and re-blot with plastic wrap to blend. 
Add glitter to second accent color. Paint tip of each nail with black glitter polish to mimic the jeweled neckline of the dress.
