Last night was so much fun, you guys! Not only did the Golden Globes air, my fave award show of the season, but I co-hosted the very first #NailGlossip twitter chat with Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and Jen from The PolishAholic. It was so great dishing on the award show looks with fellow nail fanatics. The hour flew by and I can’t wait for the next one, January 26th (Grammy night).
During the chat, @NailedKit asked if any dresses inspired us to create nail art so I threw down the challenge that we should all try our hand at some Golden Globes inspired designs. I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t take my eyes of Mila Kunis. I’ve never seen her have a bad red carpet moment and I knew her sequin and chiffon Gucci Premiére gown would look fantastic as nail art.
What I Used
Get The Look
Begin with a base coat of Orly Mirror Mirror. It’s smooth and well pigmented so you only need two coats.
Next, use a nail art brush dipped in OPI Haven’t The Foggiest to draw lines from the base of the nail in varying lengths. Then, fill in any spots at the base with super tiny strokes of Haven’t The Foggiest.
Finally, add a super thin layer of Essie Set in Stones from the base to about 2/3 of the way up the nail. This will deposit a few larger sequins and a smattering of smaller glitter to emulate the metallic gems that appear on the bodice.
Finish with a layer of top coat, once dry. Applying too soon could smudge the lines.
Orly Mirror Mirror ($4.99 on sale) is available at ULTA.com, OPI Haven’t The Foggiest ($8.99) is available at ULTA.com and SallyBeauty.com, Essie Set In Stones ($8.50) is available at Kohls.com and Nordstrom.com.
What do you think of my couture inspired nail art design? Is this something you would try? Who wore your favorite dress at the Golden Globes?
