Add 2 layers of topcoat to make sure the glitter sealed in and protected. Buff the surface to take off shine and smooth out any bumps and scratchy parts of the glitter.Before topcoating the final layer, randomly add some fine purple glitter and chunky black glitter.

For the black nails, place a few drops of water onto the nail and then swirl in different colored paints. I used blue, purple, white, and gold. Take the corner of a paper towel and soak up some of the excess liquid.

A femme fatale is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is often described as an enchantress or witch as she is able to entrance and hypnotize her victim with a spell. For my design I used this concept and incorporated some fashion inspiration as well. I’ve had this jacket saved in my inspiration arsenal for a while and thought it embodied the femme fatale concept perfectly. The deep blues, blacks, and purples give off the mysterious and seductive vibe of a femme fatale while the contrasting gold and white brings a feminine and romantic touch. The swirled design are evocative of the movements of magic spells. I also used a smoke technique to add another mysterious and enchanting element.
