Hey lovelies, long time no see! I have a blog post up and coming on what I’ve been up to the past two years (hint: I can legally do your nails now!), but first I wanted to share this mani with y’all because I’m just that excited about it.
Over the last year I’ve had the pleasure of being acquainted with the totally out there and super radical artwork of Oliver Hibert. His work reminds me of being a little 90s girl – fuzzy blacklight posters with and acid trip-bright funky colors! These are the pieces that inspired my manicure (all screencapped from Hibert’s Instagram account):
So now you have an idea of where my head was at when I started the design. Obviously my nails do not do his work justice, so definitely check out his page for more! And here’s my adaptation of Hibert’s awesomeness on my fingers:
There you have it! These were so much fun to do. I used all OPI Gel Color gel polishes (I took the pics a few days after I completed the mani, hence a lil bit of growth at the cuticle) so the design would last extra long.
I’m so excited to be back (from outer space)! Can’t wait to check out what’s been going on in the nail-o-sphere. Does anyone know of any nail art contests that are going on for fall/Halloween/October? If so, please link them in the comments! Much appreciated.
