31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Day 22

Here's our Day 22 - Inspired by a Song!

Now, being a HUGE Lady Gaga and Beyoncé fan, when I first heard they were collaborating on a song I was one happy chappy! So to commemorate this AMAZING duet, as you may have guessed, the song we were inspired by was Telephone!

If for some crazy reason you haven't heard the song, check it out here:

Now, if you haven't seen the video, these nails don't really make a lick of sense, but we hope you enjoy them anyway!


Thumb: one of Beyoncé's outfits
1) Paint on a royal blue base coat
2) Using a gold varnish, paint a thin strip on the tip of the nail
3) Then add some gold tassels running down
4) Finish off with some different colour jewel shapes!

Index Finger: one of Lady Gaga's outfits
1) Paint on a vertical yellow stripe
2) Once this has dried, paint on a few horizontal stripes - no need to be parallel!
3) Add a few black specks (which are supposed to be letters)

Middle Finger: Hello, hello baby, you called?
For this nail, I decided to go with the title of the song!
1) Paint on any colour background you fancy
2) Using a contrasting colour, paint on the phone shape, and the spirally cord coming off of it
3) Use a black varnish to do an outline

Ring Finger: The Big House 
Here we painted the setting of the video - prison. Nice and easy!
1) Paint on a white background
2) Paint on your prison bars!

And finally, the Pinky: another Gaga outfit
1) Paint half of your nail red, but with a slight diagonal slant
2) Paint on an over-lapping layer of blue
3) Then add the stars (or in this case dots) and stripes!

What do you think?
