Art Deco Manicure

…chic and cheerful!

Something old, spliced with something new-ish and it’s a fan-tab-ulously playful Art Deco inspired manicure. Darlings, I am very happy with this look and it’s very adaptable – especially if you swap out the colours and switch it up.

Dominant talons are a golden/orange combination, with stylised Art Deco design lines. While the feature talon is a dark mica based green, with more simplified golden design lines.

The line work on this looks is really what I wanted to pop; as there is no real option for building up those stylised, dramatic and crisp layers – a strong black or darker hue will do the same. There’s no limit to the line and plane combinations that you can experiment with, my main inspiration was Art Deco style architecture.

OK Darlings, I'm logging off - shower time!
