tuxedo nails

Last week, a friend of mine brought some legal fingernails caught my attention. Apparently, Zooey Deschanel posted a photo of her nails on her instagram. It is titled "I'm wearing a dress, but my nails are wearing tuxedos! # Goldenglobes." Kudos to Zooey for being so awesome and do a nail pattern for the red carpet! Since it's awards, I decided to do a look inspired by your nails today:
You will need:
  • Base coat
  • White nail polish
  • Black nail polisg
  • Nail Art Pen
Start with a base layer and a layer of white nail polish.
Then grab the black enamel and paint on each side of the tips of your nails in a diagonal angle. You should be forming a triangular shape - this part is kinda like the "blazer" in his tuxedo :)
Depending on the size of your brush - you can do a bit of confusion on your nails. If you worry about accuracy, you can easily use the method manicure with ribbons to make a triangular shape.
Use a toothpick and cotton swab to remove any dirt on the sides of the nails.
Now using the pen or brush nail art, to draw the bow tie, making a big "X" form and fill in the sides. Then draw three points for the buttons!
Make the rest of your nails :)
Hover over the base after dry and you're done!
Voila! And now you're ready for the red carpet too! Or maybe just your next awards party at home watching! Thanks for cuteness Zooey ! ♥
