My my mom took me to my first ballet in Paris a number of years ago. It was an exquisite experience – the elegance and grace of the dancers is indescribable. It’s really incredible what ballerinas can do.
Ever since I was a little girl, I always loved ballerina slippers – those gorgeous pink ballet flats with ribbons that criss cross up your leg. It’s no wonder the whole ‘ballet slipper’ flats style took off with women worldwide – everyone wants to look like a ballerina so it makes sense that most of us have a special connection with ballet slippers.
Today’s nail art is inspired by ballet slippers. Using OPI don’t pretzel my buttons and kiss me I’m Brazilian, I created these ballet nails.
The index and thumb are both a simple ballet slipper, while the other three fingers are intended to replicate the ribbon running up your ankle.
What do you think? I love how these ballet nails turned out and I don’t want to take them off!
