Nail Art Inspired by The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Friday, May 01, 2015

As many of you know, I am relatively active in a few nail groups on Reddit. In one of the groups, a user was holding a giveaway. The prompt said to create a mani based on a gif from the show The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I was super excited for the challenge because I had just added the show to my Netflix queue.

These are the gifs I used for my design:


Here's the design I came up with:

I felt like Kimmy's collared tank top was so rad that I had to recreate it. For this look I started with Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I used a quick dry top coat over that so that the nail tape wouldn't stick too much. From there I added pink stripes using nail tape and Essie Haute in the Heat. At that point I decided it was a good idea to try to freehand the green stripes using OPI Mermaids Tears. They didn't come out as cleanly as I had hoped, but I didn't hate them. We will just say that the extra ripple is there to give it more of a fabric/t-shirt feel. 

Have you ever tried to recreate something for a contest? How did it turn out?
