This is my entry for Nails NTNA pre challenge. I choose the cover from January 1984 to do my design. We were asked to create a set of 5 nails and hand paint them. We had to choose from over 30 years of covers. I hope you enjoy!

Step-by-Step Nail Art Tutorial

1
I first started by sculpting out square nails with circles and 4 different suits on the end of the square. I then painted each nail completely with white polish.

On the thumb I sculpted a long square nail. I painted the nail green and painted thin white lines to replicate a black jack table. I used green polish to clean up the white lines to make them precise.

I painted cards and hands on the nail using acrylic paint. I went in with a small striping brush and painted in the detail of the cards. I painted on the words that are on a black jack table. I top coated the nail with a matte top coat.

On the pinky nail, I painted a design to represent the back of a playing card. I put white lines first and then went back in with the blue and dotted in where the white lines cross. Then I out lined black around the white nails to start the cards. I cleaned up the black line with white acrylic.
