Nails: The Story of the Modern Manicure Book Cover Inspired Nail Art

Friday, November 21, 2014

Here's my second manicure for this month's inspired by a book theme for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. I got inspiration for these nails by the cover of the book, Nails: The Story of the Modern Manicure. I recreated the nails on the cover with a accent nail added to it.

I used American Apparel Downtown LA on all the nails except the ring. I used striping tape to tape off the tips of my nails and painted in the sections with Salon Perfect Sugar Cube. For the ring, I used Misa Green with Envy and used the red polish to paint in the taped sections on the nail tip. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I didn't have the same nail shape as the book cover but I made it work with my nails. I really like how the accent nail turned out too. What do you think?
