Digit-al Dozen: Throwback to Luciferia

Greetings and Nailutations,

It has been an amazing Digit-al Dozen Week using the prompt Throwback.  I had my tribute to Sally, Bumble, Clown and yesterday a Butterfly.  Today we are going old school, as in college days, back in the late 90's-early 2000's (yes I'm dating myself).

Let's get to the details.

This photo was taken at my grandmother's house, I lived with her for 2 years in college - 30 minute bus ride was closer than a 90 minutes bus ride to college and was cheaper than staying near the University.  And do I really need to explain home cooked meals?  :)  I saw this costume and wanted to use it for nail art, but it's all red, so what was I going to do?

Products used:
Polish My Life - Little Red Dress
Butter London - Nail Foundation
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat
Calm Your Tips - Nail Vinyls
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
LINA Nail Art Supplies - License to Be Sexy 01 Plate, which I purchased from What's Up Nails in store
Cuticula - Scented Nail Tape

I started with a base of Nail Foundation.  For me, it is the perfect nude that takes my visible nail line down a few notches.  I then topped it with top coat.  After that dried, I used Fire vinyls and Little Red Dress to create flames at the tips of my nails to mimic the ends of my dress.  Once that dried, I stamped with Little Red Dress and License To Be Sexy 01 Plate which represent my red fishnets - ooh la la!  Everything is topped with top coat.

This look was super easy to do and I love how it turned out!  I have had a blast with these manis all week and I hope you have enjoyed seeing them too!  Be sure to check out the other Throwbacks below!

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails
