Tonight is our first official performance of Verdi’s Aida, the story of which is set in Egypt. I decided to go with an Egyptian theme of gilded gold nails, hieroglyphics, and the head of King Tutankhamun’s (Tut’s) sarcophagus as an accent nail.
I started by painting all my nails a shiny metallic gold. I used Charge It! from Sephora by OPI.
While looking for Halloween manicure ideas in the past few weeks, I came across plate BM-S250 from Bundle Monster, now called Maniology, that had an Egyptian theme. They clearly thought that it would be used for the mummy aspects of it, but you can create a pretty classy looking manicure from some of the other designs.
King Tut was the highlight of this manicure, so I opted to work on him first before proceeding with the rest of the design.
