Anna Kendrick/Monqiue Lhuillier Golden Globes Inspired Nail Art

I'm sure a lot of you enjoy having a look at the red carpet at events like The Golden Globes and having a gander at all the glamourous ladies and gents in attendance.  Events like these are prime for nailspiration and as soon as I saw Anna Kendrick wearing this stunning Monique Lhuillier gown, I knew I had to recreate it on my nails.


O.P.I Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Models Own Cerise Shine and American Apparel Berry

These nails were relatively easy to do.  I started with my base of Don't Pretzel My Buttons (another TKMaxx bargain!) and once that was dry, I mixed Cerise Shine with Berry to create a dark pink shade for the main dash detailing, gradating the dashes to replicate the same pattern on the dress, doing the same with sparser, darker dashes of Berry and then completing with a band of Berry around the middle.  I did this with my usual detailing brush.  I also added in some bits of white to replicate some of the metallic shine from the original dress since I didn't have any metallic pink shades and then sealed everything in with top coat.

I hope you've enjoyed this post and I look forward to more nailspiration coming from Awards season.  Who was your favourite on the Golden Globes red carpet?  Let me know in the comments below and be sure to be following me by the sites below, I'll be posting something soon relating to my 2 year blogiversary so make sure you're following to be the first to know!
