Today’s nails are inspired by the fashion label Emily the Strange. I have done Emily nails once before, last time with a decal. This time I wanted to hand paint her. I used this picture to base Emily on.
First I started with a base of Revlon Red over that I painted a black squiggly line, top and bottom. Then I painted Emily and her cat Sabbath with black and white acrylic paint. Emily has four cats, the crazy cat lady starts young!
I really need to get better brushes and a better light! I thought she would look good matte, but when I added a glossy top coat I think I like glossy better.
I added gold gems, to match with the Revlon bottle I was holding and then all of a sudden….it reminds me of Jean Luke Picard from Star Trek!!! See what I mean??!! It’s funny how your mind associates these things!
I hope you’re laughing, because I am! From Emily to Star Trek…I wonder how many cats they have on The Enterprise?!
