Evanora Manicure

     Sorry, I've been MIA lately I've been busy. But in way of making up for it I have some nail art to show you guys today. There will only be two pictures though because it has been raining (or trying to) all day and I can't get a decent outdoor shot to save my life. I am going to show you guys my version of the Evanora manicure worn by the lovely Rachel Weisz as Evanora (the "wicked" witch of the East) in Oz The Great and Powerful. I know a lot of people have done this one but I wanted to try it too. So here's what I cam up with.

Here's my inspiration picture:

The manicure:
Indoor no flash. 
*The spider is covering my's healed but still gross. 

Indoor with flash. 

What I used:
Deborah Lippmann - New Flesh
China Glaze - Icicle
Nail Art - Black
Striping tape (for crisp lines)

     I applied 3 coats of DL New Flesh, taped off using striping tape, then used a black nail striper to fill it in, then applied the silver stripes. When I was about half way though I was afraid that I wouldn't like this manicure but now that it's done...I freaking love it. I know in the picture her nails are nude except the black 'V'...but if my nails go naked they get all chippy...and we can't have that. So, I improvised by starting with New Flesh (which was kind of cheating because I already had on for a swatch which should be up in the next day or so). Anyway, I really loved the movie, and Rachel is amazing in it so I had to try her nails. Now I'm glad I did. Well that's all I have for you guys today. Until next time, stay classy and stay polished.
