#tbt: uʍop ǝpᴉsdn ǝɥt
Ah, Stranger Things. Season one of the show captured me just like so many others, and after just one episode, I was hooked. I randomly decided one day in late 2016 to paint Demogorgon nail art, and that's where today's #tbt takes us.
The base colour for these was Black Taxi from Nails Inc., and then I sponged on a mix of Live and Let Die, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and Moonraker from OPI, as well as a bit of acrylic. Following that, I painted the trees/forest with black acrylic. On most of the nails, the final detail was taking watered down white acrylic, and making dots on the nails. Then, just before the dots of white dried, I gently pressed a makeup sponge onto them, which removed some of the paint, and created the glowing orb/spore effect. Finally, I painted the Demogorgon on my ring finger using acrylic.
As if that first photo wasn't enough of a close-up, here's another, ultra close-up.
And here's all of the nails.
Are you a fan of Stranger Things too? Who's your favourite character or characters? Mine are Hopper and Dustin!
That's all for this week's #tbt. Until next time, stay rad!
