Artsy Wednesday: Inspired by a celebrity manicure

Hi! Sorry this is a bit late, I got carried away doing a sugar scrub... my legs went from scaly hellbeasts to soft, plump happy things, so it was all for a good cause!

Anyway, here it is:


I trawled the internet for a few weeks to find a design for this when's challenge, but ended up back at my first search result - Zooey Deschanel's tuxedo nails that she wore to the Golden Globes.


I freehanded everything using an eyeliner brush. To make it a little bit different, I did Zooey's Golden Globes dress on my ring finger as an accent nail using China Glaze Glittering Garland and ulta3 Metal. Unfortunately I don't think it's obvious that it's a dress if you don't know the context!


What's your favourite celebrity manicure?

  3. I thought it was obvious that the ring finger was a dress, because the context is in the formal apparel theme.

  8. There is only one thing one can say to any performing artists after a performance, and that's 'Wonderful.' Later, the next day, sure, you can talk about things that could be implemented next time around.
