Jessie J inspired Aztec Nails!

I was flicking through a pile of magazines that my sister had brought with her at the weekend and whilst reading More magazine I came across some nail inspiration!

Although this is not the best picture in the world (my photography skill need some work!) you can see the Aztec design Jessie J is sporting on her super pointy talons! With Aztec prints being a key trend this season I thought I would take this inspiration and create my own version!

I have used pretty much the same design but have changed the colours so rather than being black and white I've used red and white instead! The red base I have used is Chick Flick Cherry from OPI and for the detailing I used a white nail art paint. It was actually really easy to do, all you need is a fairly steady hand and your well away! In the original picture Jessie J's nails are shaped into a point which makes the look slightly more edgy but as you can see mine are more on the square side so it works with all nail shapes. The other great thing about this design is that you can use any colour combo to achieve the look!

If you want to see how I achieved this look take a peek at my video!

Are there any key trends giving you inspiration for your nails this season?

Stay gorgeous
