I've been wanting to try this nail style for SO long...They are partially inspired by burlesque showgirl Dita Von Teese (and no, the fact that she's Marilyn Manson's ex wife didn't influence me, even if he is one of my favourite artists, that's their own business!). I love her extremely ellegant but edgy and dark style and perfection. I personally think she should RATHER be seen as a beauty icon than these celebrities that pop out nowadays and are all kitsch...anyway!
My work didn't turn out that perfectly, and I did i after waking up. I will do a matching make-up as well, now we'll stick to the nails because trust me, you DON'T want to see my face when I wake up.
So this is an example of her wearing the manicure I am talking about:
So, I followed this style, but I made the bottom part white and my nails have a more square shape. This is what I did in a rush, just to see what it looks like:
Note: - the red looks more orange on the nails than in reality
- I didn't use any kind of stencils, just did it by free hand that is why it didn't turn out perfectly, and also because it's my first try.
- had the manicure for more than 24 hours so far and it's behaving well so far, not like some nailpolish that chips off after a few hours.
I have a lot of other ideas for this style, when I actually get to put them in practice I will show you the result! I really like this kind of manicure, actually much more than the usual french manicure that everyone wears. It does look good but it's really EVERYWHERE and I loose interest in something that is all over the place and becomes less original.
Feel free to tell me your opinion!
