Gaga by Max Abadian: I loved this shoot and decided to use it as a sort of Part Two/revisit to the Mint Blonde design that I did awhile back. Here’s another closeup for more detail!
Colors & Materials Used: Base of Nude Now (Sally Hansen Salon), Tart Deco (Essie) tips and accent nail, with white freehand lace designs. A couple extra inclusions are a glitter coat over the lace of I Love The Holidays! (OPI), Lighten Up (L’Oreal Jet Set) pearl shimmer over accent nail tip, and an added glass rhinestone.
So, originally this was supposed to be a photo tutorial based on the Mint Blonde manicure, but the photos of the various steps turned out so starkly different in lighting over the days they were taken, that I decided to scrap posting those in favor of just posting this final product and re-doing the tutorial using another Gaga look (she does wear a lot of lace after all and I think this might be great in black over nude, anyway!) So! For those of you who were waiting for it, just hang tight!
