It’s my favorite time of the week: FRIDAY!
I’ve been casually obsessed with “The Tudors” this week, and so naturally, my nails needed to reflect that.
Here is “A Notch in Henry VIII’s Belt.”
Looks pretty, but lemme tell ya, it was a royal pain! Nails 1,2,3, & 5 were easy enough, I just gave them a couple coats of a deep red (an oldie but goodie: O.P.I.’s St. Petersburg), and then on each ring finger, painted half the nail in red, and half in a deep purple (O.P.I.’s Lincoln Park After Dark). I used acetone to perfect the division between the two colors, but it doesn’t need to be too precise, because I painted a line of gold glitter with a glitter nail pen to create a stately looking band. I topped everything off with a rhinestone. And there you have it. Regal nails fit for a drag queen. Here’s a close up:
Since my hands have all the steadiness of a 16th century surgeon, painting the ring finger was kind of tricky. But luckily, any flaws are easily covered up by the glitter band. What do you know…glitter coming to my rescue, as usual.
Themed nails are too much fun, but I’m not looking forward to the “Dexter” themed mani.. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
