Art Deco Sunburst


Closing this year with a big bang, on the nails. :-) Like my last post this mani features elements from Art Deco, a style introduced to me by my father. It took me a while to like it, as I was so in love with and used to the curvy and organic lines of its predecessor Art Nouveau, but now I can't get enough of both. ♥ Deco has these slick and stylized shapes, making it look so grand! It just keeps wowing me everytime.
For the nail art I used the explosion design and a gold striper to freehand the little chevrons. All this on top of two coats of the blue Never On Sunday from Only You (house brand of Ici Paris XL).
Heading off to family to celebrate New Year's Eve now. I wish you all a happy and healthy new year!

  10. I love art deco!!! Your last two designs are awesome. I can't wait to try them for myself, although I am really bad with straight lines, especially when there are several. But oh yeah, loving the art deco look!

    1. Hi Laura, it's both. ;-) I used tape for the explosion/sunburst and freehanded the chevrons at the tips.

  18. Dit ontwerp vind ik echt heel mooi! Ik ben al lang fan van jouw blog, en ik vind het echt rustgevend om naar jouw absoluut perfecte nagels te kijken. Ik ben zelf ook verslaafd aan nagellak, en sinds gisteren heb ik zelf ook een blog gemaakt. Ik hoop dat het er ooit zo mooi gaat uitzien als de jouwe!
