The Great Gatsby Inspired Nail Art

Hello beauts. Long time no write? My apologies. I’m planning on doing a hiatus post along with my thoughts and dilemmas in the future.

Until then, I have a lot of catching up to do. I would really like to post my nails in chronological order, but I decided to post my Gatsby nails first since it’s still pretty recent, with the movie still being in theatres.


I read The Great Gatsby a while back, and once I saw that there was a new Gatsby movie coming out, I was super ecstatic. Naturally, I wanted matching nails to go see it, so I decided to use the Jay Gatsby logo from the movie and the notable eyes of Dr. TJ Eckleburg.DSCN2578

For my index finger, I used Sally Hansen – Blew Me Away! as my base, and lightly sponged Pure Ice – French Kiss around. I then used a gold, black, and white Stripe Rite Striper to create all of the details. I used a mix of Blew Me Away! and French Kiss to make the pupils.

For my ring finger, I used a base of Wet n Wild – Black Crème and used a gold Stripe Rite Striper to make the logo.

For my non-accent nails, I used Wet n Wild – Black Crème for my base and created a gradient, using a gold glitter by Cosmetic Arts, e.l.f. – Golden Goddess, and an Art Deco – Gold Glitter striper.


I don’t quite remember how to post. So, uh, have a nice day :) Oh, and thanks for sticking with me regardless of my pathetic attempt at blogging for the past few months :)
