Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Decades: 1980's Aesthetic Nails

by - Tuesday, January 10, 2017

My second look for the Decades prompt with The Digit-al Dozen! I decided to go with the 1980's this time (or technically as my friend said "it's the 90's because the 1980's didn't end until 1994").

This was a really fun look to do, and all I knew when I started is that I wanted to incorporate cassette tapes. I was 100% going to freehand them but then I realised I had a stamping plate and decided to make use of that instead.

Check below for a better look!

Neon fabulousness!

I started off with a coat of Julep Tin Man (which is a silver linear holo) and then added a coat of the gorgeous Beyond the Nail Dune Buggy (which is a silver scattered olo with neon circle glitter). Let me tell you, it was gorgeous enough on it's own at this stage!

I ended up using two different stamping plates to put this look together. The layers of triangles are from MoYou London Holy Shapes 19 and the other designs were from Cheeky CH51.

Polish-wise I ended up using a lot, but the stars of the look were the neons from both the Essie 2016 Neons Collection and the Color Club Poptastic Neons (which stamped surprisingly well)!

Guys... I am in love with these! The colour palette of the 80's is so fun to play with, and the bold shapes are just perfection! LOVE!
