I’m super excited to tell you that as of today I am back as a contributor to Dutch Vogue online! On I’ll be showing manicures with a modern approach plus talk about my references and inspiration. The first one is a little ode to the Berlin Chair from De Stijl artist Gerrit Rietveld. I hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I enjoy making these. Do send me a snapshot if you try one out!


/ inspiration

The Berlin Chair by Gerrit Rietveld from 1923. Eight surfaces perpendicular to each other in black, grey and white. The beams and boards with double functions seem random and at the same time very organized arranged in space.

/ application

Vertical beams across the nails in the monotone palette of Rietveld’s Berlin Chair. Tape off nails on both sides and fill in the ‘beams’ with grey, white and black in different and random proportions. Remove the tape before the polish dries to get the most straight lines. When dried finish of the manicure with a layer of topcoat.
