Award Season : Oscar's

Sunday the 26th will be the night of the 84th annual Academy Awards! And, more importantly it will see the end of my award season series. I've had a lot of fun doing this series and I hope you've enjoyed them all too :)

Without further ado, here come the Oscar nails - 

Award anyone? ;)

I used 17 Fast Finish Nail Polish in Knockout Red, NARS Kismet, Barry M 320 Gold Foil and 47 Black.

- Start with your basecoats. Especially if you're using this specific red 'cos it stains like a mofo!
-  Next I used the NARS gold to make a kinda spot-light effect in the background
- Then, the gold foil to paint the award, and a bit more NARS to add a little detail. The idea is to make the award more real than just a flat shape!
- Lastly, I added the black across the bottom just to add that finishing touch
- Top coat to seal it all in.

I'm looking forward to the awards, and ofcourse the E! red carpet coverage :)

Hope you enjoy these nails, and have a fabulous weekend!

See you next week....
