It took my forever to think of a nail design “inspired by a color,” but finally I came up with this. I’ve always loved art deco, which is honestly part of the reason I bought Essie’s Tart Deco in the first place. So I decided to put the two of them together for some pretty cool nail art. I really like how these turned out, though from a distance, they looked kind of strange. I think they’d look better on longer nails. Still, I think I will definitely be doing something like this again.
I used Essie Tart Deco for the base, with China Glaze Smoke and Ashes, Essie Blanc, and OPI Number One Nemesis (in that order) for the design.
If it’s not clear, my inspiration came more from the name of the color than the color itself. but I think it works very well in this design.
