Today’s challenge is Inspired by a Song. Ok, so maybe this is more inspired by the music video instead of the song, but still!
Nail Polishes and Materials Used:
- Gold – Sally Hansen Golden-i
- Gold Glitter – Etude House Golden Bell
- Black – Sation Black
- Topcoat – Essence Absolute Pure
- Gold striping tape
- Gold 2mm/5mm square studs
Ok, so Janelle Monae’s new song is my jam. And she kills it in the end with that rap! Her and Erykah Badu collaborating is a match made in heaven.
Anyway…onto the nails. I cut some round white acrylic nails into stilettos, then painted black and gold stripes and chevrons using scotch tape. Then I added the gold striping tape to add some extra flair (and to hide the wobbly edges, haha). The gradient nail was just made by sponging Golden Bell on the tip. Next, I gave each nail a good coat of topcoat and pressed the studs in. I looove how these turned out! Too bad I have nowhere to really wear these…
Thanks for reading!
