Contest: Introducing FLARE’s #ManiMonday Challenge

This week’s #ManiMonday Challenge: To kick off the series, we asked a few of Canada’s top-notch lacquer lovers to create nails inspired by a recent FLARE cover.

Can’t get enough nail art? Neither can we. That’s why we’re launching our #ManiMonday design challenge: Every week, we’ll set a new theme to inspire you. Submit your mani creation, and we’ll highlight our favourites on FLARE.com. The top picks could also be featured in an upcoming issue.

MIX MASTER

The inspiration: Jil Sander’s dress was again the spark, but the new twists—the contrast of solids vs. prints; a softer pastel palette; plus the use of negative space—make this an original.
