I have to say, I had a hard time finding inspiration for my last design. I kept coming up with book themes, which is not what this them is about! I decided to focus on music, seeing that I did designs for movies and TV. After some thinking I decided to do a manicure based on Lily Allen's new song Air Balloon. I am a HUGE Lily Allen fan and love everything she puts out! The new album is proving to be just as awesome! I was going to do Air Balloon nails and then I got a better idea. If you are a fan of Lily Allen also, you know that she loves nail art. She is always sporting some amazing design. I decided to recreate the manicure that she wore for the video!
Here is Lily's manicure.
I'll take you through the steps of my re-creation!
I started with two coats of Shimmer Polish Tracy.
I added Orly Monster Mash to my tips.
I added my safari animals using Milani Black Swift and images from GA32 and 46.
I didn't have gold studs, so I added some Essie Good As Gold dots as a substitute.
I love these fun, glittery nails! It is something that I never would have thought of doing! I think my re-creation is pretty good. Thanks Lily Allen!
And the video!
