For challenge 2 of Next Top Nail Artist, we were asked to create a 3-D nail design for the "You've always been... Mysterious" ad campaign for Entity. The beauty of a mystery is the unknown. I chose deep blue tones with some opalescent glitter to represent the night sky and created a 3-D scene of magic.
