Art Deco Line Work


Merry Christmas, dear readers! Here's how my mani looks like this year. Not very Christmassy per se, but liking it anyway. :-) The gold in my hands is Essence A Piece Of Forever from the Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 collection. I was only swatching it, but ended up wearing it after liking it so much with the improvised line work, for which I used my trusty striper Ink from China Glaze. Since I'm not confident enough to make such detailed work with my non-dominant hand, I kept my right hand plain black. But it actually looks nicer like this, more balanced  I believe.
Until next time then! Have a great time with your loved ones. :-)

    1. Thanks! :) I wasn't familiar with Poirot, but I've looked up the intro, which is pretty cool! I love how the graphical Art Deco elements are brought to live with movement, never thought of doing that!

  6. Art Deco is of my favourite design eras (and quite often featured on my blog :D ) - this is perfect!

    I don't know about your dominant hand, but the work you do with your dominant one is jaw-dropping.

    Merry Christmas!

  16. That is perfect :D I can't believe how wonderfully straight those lines are! Maybe I just drink too much coffee, but I can never quite get them perfect. Thought they were decals (although really, with you, I should have known better) x
