Hope y'all are having a wonderful day so far...
So today, I have another video up on my YouTube Channel. Have you subscribed yet?
Anyhoo, as most of y'all know, last Sunday was a day where Celebrities all got dolled up for the 2013 Emmy Award show. Lots of the ladies were glowing in gorgeous dresses and hairstyles, but lately, I love how more and more attention has been given to their NAILS!!!
Some news channels actually have mani camera, and a lot of pictures have flooded the internet with what some of the female celebs had on their nails to compliment their dresses!
Just about everyone's favorite nail-fashion-forward celebrity is Zooey Deschanel and this year, she did NOT disappoint! On her nails for the Emmy was a checkered dominoes style black and white nail art done by her wonderful nail artist Tom Bachik!
When I saw the mani, I was baffled at how complicated it looked, yet I knew it would be easy to do!
So I whipped out my video camera for a tutorial since I caught wind that a couple of people wanted to know how her nail artist DID HER NAILS!
Here's a collage of Zooey's nails and my result.
To recreate this look, I whipped out a black and white polish from one of my favorite brands - Zoya.
Here are the basic things I used.
Left to right: Zoya - Purity (White Polish), Raven (Black Polish), and a black Nail Art Pen thingy I got from ebay.
Zoya Purity was such an amazing canvas for this mani, and I couldn't have asked for a better white nail polish.
After painting my base color, I used the nail art pen to draw crosses on all of my nails, and then I used Zoya Raven to fill in the black checks you see on my nails. Simple right?
I then used a dotting tool to place dots on each opposite color.
Are you more of a visual person and don't understand what I just said above? lol....
Watch this video below. :-)
Feel free to share your thoughts with me darlings... Love it? Hate it?
P.S: Do not be limited to using just black and white polishes. Try this in other colors for even more FUN/WOW factor!
That's it for now.
Till Later, God Bless.
