My orchestra had a “Lights, Camera, Music!” themed program last Sunday where we played musical selections from different films alongside a projection of either related images or actual clips of the movies themselves. It was a super fun concert, and it inspired me to paint these sparkly gold Hollywood inspired nails.
The real star of the artwork was the holographic polish. Honestly, I don’t think anyone can go wrong with holo polish because it is just so beautiful! I started by painting my nails with Heart of Gold from Born Pretty Store for some talons worthy of an Oscar.
2 coats of Heart of Gold from Born Pretty give you opaque coverage with a gorgeous color.
I found the cute filmstrip image on plate BM-421 from Bundle Monster. The panes are empty so you can really get creative with what you want to put into the design.

I used Ya Qin An Stamping Nail Polish in Black along with the filmstrip image from the uppper left side of the plate and haphazardly stamped it at different angles on my nails.
The stars on this design come from BP-64 from Born Pretty Store. I thought I could isolate a row of 3 stars to make the transfer process easier, but unfortunately the spacing didn’t match the image from Bundle Monster. I ended up stamping one star at a time into each frame. To do this, you only need to apply a little bit of polish over one of the stars, scrape off the excess, pick up the image with your stamper, then remove any extraneous parts around the design with tape before stamping it onto your nail. It’s a very tedious process, but it is easy enough to do.

After some top coat was applied, these stars were ready to shine!
You get a gold star if you try this mani!
This design was eye catching enough that several strangers (male and female!) made comments about how they liked my nails. And of course, the concert was a great success as well. Now to find inspiration for my next design…
