If you know me at all you have probably noticed that NUDE nails are not really my jam…as gorgeous as I think they are its hard for me to resist a little pigment there, some nail art there and while we are at it how about some glitter. With all good intentions in mind I really wanted to celebrate, embrace and rock some nude-i-licous digits.
SIGH…sometimes even the best-laid plans can be led astray….
My quest for long elegant nude nails did a 180 into femme fatale, sexed up (valentines day is around the corner after all) and even a little dangerous daggers that even would Æon Flux be proud of. There is a melange of steam punk, fish nets, studs and some VERY sharp spikes that honestly if I make it through New York Fashion Week without scratching myself or others will be a tremendous accomplishment.
Ran sculpted, mixed and took my inspiration board into a 3D nail fantasy….
Nude – M.A.C Mineralize SPF Foundation Loose in Extra Light was mixed with Cal Gel to create the perfect “foundation” for my fingers
Black – M.A.C Pigment in BLACK BLACK mixed with Cal Gel for the black bits.
We also used black tulle (to create the seamed fish net effect). watch parts, spikes and studs…what can I say we are crafty…we get around
