Middle Eastern Inspired Nail Art: ft What's up Nails

Hi lovelies, hope all is well in your world? Mine's is going well, I'm finally getting my neck looked at by a physio. Fingers crossed they get a plan together to combat the pain. It sure would be appreciated to finally get back into pain free days.
 So onto cherrier things....

Today I'm sharing with you a lil design I did recently. I got the gorgeous what's up nails B001 middle eastern vibes plate in a cheeky haul from nail artisan. So I knew I wanted to go glam but still stick to a traditional mani.

I choose 2 of my favourite images from the plate, the princess/queen image and the hieroglyphs. I must admit I love all things history and back in the day Egyptian history was one that most intrigued me. So this mani was a total blast.

   I started by choosing a polish that sort of reminded me of papyrus. It's celestial going to the beach, a beautiful cream polish with gold flakes and microglitter. It has that antique look to it so it was perfect for this. Using that, i painted the pointer & mindle finger with that. Then for the ring finger i picked black because i wanted the focus to be soley on the bling kinda like Cleopatras hair and head piece. Then i kept the pinky simple by using the light gold chrome pigment by indigo nails.

For the bling I used a burnt gold charm and surrounded it with gold studs.

As for the details I used born pretty store flakes to add an antique look to the nail. I then made a decal which I lined with gold polish and attached the sticker to the middle finger. I did the same with the pointer finger. Colouring in the decal with blues, golds, teal & rose gold. For a 3d look I added gold studs to her ears and a swarovski ab crystal to her head piece.

I must admit I loved the end results. What do you guys think?

See you next time.
Love khylie xx
