Art deco is an influential design that was prominent in the 1920s-1940s. Characterised by rich colors and bold geometric shapes, even today art deco design inspires the world around us. Have you read Great Gatsby? Maybe you preferred the 2013 film, with Leonardo DiCaprio. Either way – The Great Gatsby is the perfect example of art deco style, from fashion to furniture and everything in between.
Influenced by art deco, I created this look using four essie polishes: style hunter, licorice, blanc and no place like chrome.
Using striping tape and a striping brush, I first painted my nails red. Then once they were dry I placed the tape on my nails and painted the black. Once the black was dry I used the striping tape again to create the white. Finally using a striping brush, I painted the silver.
I love the red, silver, white and black together. The boldness of the pattern is really striking to me.
