Art Deco Nails Video Tutorial

Here's my take on the popular "Art Deco" manicure, a tri-color scalloped edge design that recalls the glamor and artistry of 1920s Paris. With a little patience and just a few tools, you can easily accomplish this stunning design that looks great on short or long nails.

What I used:

  • Zoya "Dea" (mocha creme)

  • China Glaze "Midnight Kiss" (gold shimmer)

  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure "Pat on the Black" (almost-black plum)

  • Seche Vite top coat

  • small eyeshadow brush (disposable is best)

Let me know if you try this in the comments, and please share your suggestions to help me improve my videos. Thanks for watching!

Special thanks to my Twitter pal @Lindstr for introducing me to this cool nail art design as seen on The Beauty Department.

omghash, this is freaking amazing.
