Art Deco Part 2 Nail Art

Almost a year ago, i did a similar Art Deco manicure and i really liked it so i decided to do it again, but just revamp it. I started off with a transparent-like pink sinful colors nail color and then outlined in fuchsia. I then added neon orange, yellow, and light pink geometric shapes. I finished off with two coats of topcoat, this was my original art deco design so you can see the huge growth in my nails.

Leopard Print Nails

For this week's manicure, i took the simple leopard print and added a modern twist to it. I painted on a golden half moon to the base on my nail, then i painted on the leopard print. After the print was added i put on more glitter near the base of my nail and of course I couldn't forget about the rhinestones. On six of my nails i put on some glitzy rhinestones and completed the look with two layers of top coat.

Flaming Red Manicure

For this flaming manicure i started with a white base coat and then created a yellow to dark orange gradient by using a makeup sponge. After the gradient i took a little container and put water into it, following that i dropped 2-3 drops of dark red nail polish in it. I sprayed hairspray over the nail polish in the container and then dipped my nails into the water. My nails would pick up the red spotted nail polish and adhere directly. I added some glitter and some rhinestones throughout the manicure to bling it up and ended with 2 coats of topcoat.

Aqua and lavender water marble

I started my nails with a light pink base coat and then used a light green, lavender aqua, and blue nail polish to water marble. After i took off the tape i used while water marbling, i cleaned up the edges that still had nail polish on them and added in some white dots and black swirls around the edges. I'm most pleased about the color scheme of this manicure as it reminds me about ursula. 

Simple Maroon Mani

I did another one color manicure since the green one had turned out so well. This time i just used one color to create the look. This color is so astounding in the sun, it's another great OPI shade. 

Simple Green Mani

During my winter break I didn't do a whole lot on my nails but i really liked how these came out. I first painted my nails a dark, almost black, olive green and then layered a shimmery green on top. The shimmery green on its own is very light so i was impressed with this method of layering two colors.
