Week 5: Decade Decadence (Sponsored by Akzentz):

Akzentz wanted us to create our favorite decade on 10 nail tips using only gel products and additional items. I chose the 80's because it's not just a decade; it's a state of mind. The 80's pop culture is so innocent. Lyrics described the horrors of the world but the tunes were so happy it was almost eery. I love the colors of the eighties, creativeness of the electronic music and the playfulness of the eighties movies. I added scenes from my favorite 80's movies, Tron, Ghostbusters and Back to the future. I really enjoyed painting the eighties fabric styled nails and it gave me joy to create the 3D nails using only gel.

The Ghostbuster's Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was made with using playdough molds and hard gel. First I made the torso of playdough and then covered it with hard gel. I cured the gel and dug the playdough out and painted the details with gel polish. I finished the Marshmallow Man with a layer of matte top coat.

First I painted the black base and the fabric pattern with white gel polish. For the splashes I mixed acetone and white gel polish and splattered the drops on the nail with a fan brush. Then I finished the look with different neon colors.
