Chan Clayrene is an artist that puts together all her fashion illustrations creatively using different nail polish shades as her main artistic material. The illustrations highlight gowns and apparel released by high fashion brands such as Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana and Ralph & Russo.

While many illustrators paint their fashion sketches using water color and ink, Clayrene's opt for more texturized finishes that the thickness of the nail polish colors allow her to achieve. She plays around with solid colors, glitter-based ones and shimmery shades to recreate the fabric detailing of the garments. The polish colors are often applied overtop of a drawn sketch as a way to add the same subtle wash of color as paints would.

Her work is seen featured on her website, Artclaytion.
