Hey guys! Today I have a nail art look inspired by the Showtime show, Penny Dreadful! I loved the first season when it came out and have spent the last week catching up on season 2 in order to be ready for the season 3 premier tonight! I have really enjoyed the take that they have taken on some familiar characters and it really strikes a cord in my weird little macabre heart. Plus in my mind Eva Green can do no wrong, I love that she is not afraid to show herself in unflattering lights and her acting is so incredibly strong. Are you a fan of the show?
To begin I laid down a base of Zoya Purity in 2 coats. I then used Zoya Misty and some saran wrap to pounce on some “wrinkle” texture before pouncing over that once more with ZoyaPurity to lighten it up a little bit. I then used my cleanup brush and pounced Misty around all of the edges and bled it out using 100% Acetone. This is the finished “papyrus” look!
Next I used Zoya Pepper to add in the Little Scorpion detail using a small detail brush. I bled it out a little but using 100% acetone once more and added in some shine detail using Zoya Purity. I opted not to topcoat my ring nail because I really loved the raised texture it had.
What do you think?
