This week I was creating an eye-catching look for a music video. There is a powder gradient, with a zig-zag stripe and a text-focussed contrast nail. I am quite pleased with the ‘Lion Queen’ nails, having not attempted text before.
The inspiration for Lion Queen is the phrase ‘Lion King, Lion Queen’, which means a cross between ‘easy come, easy go’ and ‘swings and roundabouts’, expressing a jolly type of apathy.
Above you can see the white stripe painted over the yellow and red, and the blue details are starting to be filled in with a striping brush.
These nails look great in real life, and I love the crown, etc. I much prefer the yellow and red fade to the green and purple one, however (and I wouldn’t have changed except for the yellow was running out) – also the keen-eyed nail fans among you will have noted that the blue zig-zags on one hand look great, whereas the orange zig-zags on the other hand are less intricate, which is due to the orange pen being shit, and the blue pen being quite great.
