My experiments with nail art have been hit or miss thus far. And a recent experiment was such a miss, I was like – lemme just stick with bold bright nails and keep it moving. Clearly I don’t know what I’m doing with nail pens or mini paintbrushes. But last Friday, I was lucky enough to meet someone who does!
Are you ready for the coolest Monday manicure yet?
The nails you see above are the amazing work of Tacarra “Spifster” Sutton, a graphic designer turned manicurist. Check out her nail art on her Tumblr page! She’s got skills. We met last Friday at a chic Chicago rooftop event called the Beauty Bar, which was hosted by my friends from Three Peas Art. On the rooftop of a glorious high rise overlooking the skyline to the left and Lake Michigan facing me, Spifster made my nails look SHARP.
We chose a dark background color. I didn’t get the name of it – so if you’re a nail polish guru please let me know! It’s a deep navy with a lot of shine.
Then she used gold glitter and a funky, unexpected pink by Kiss Nail Art. (BTW do you see how fly HER nails are? She said she changes her nails like every three days!)
This is the end result. Each nail is different. Leopard spots on my pinky, zig zags on my thumb. And I LOVE it!!
I’m totally gonna see Spifster again. She works at the Kristol Blake Salon & Spa – so best believe I’m gonna make an appointment!
