Precious Metals Manicure with Jennifer Tsourvakas


This week I had the pleasure of working with the talented Jennifer Tsourvakas to create a concept manicure design inspired by the luxury of Autumn and the 2016 Pantone Fall Palette. Being the sparkle-loving girls we are it was easy to brainstorm our fantasy mani! Jen started with a trending shark gray base on all fingers but the ring finger. She then applied gold foil to the thumb nail and a powder-glitter-to-chrome finish effect on the middle finger. Moving on to my favorite nail (the ring finger!) she applied solid white, and using an experienced hand and a creative eye, hand-painted a stunning marbling pattern using black and white lacquers, a thin brush and water-coloring technique. The end result is a stunning mixture of textures and dramatic opulence.

I can’t wait to go back in about 2 weeks (that’s about how long this shallac/gel manicure will last) for another work of art to be performed on my nails by Jen! What should we try next?
