Aztec Art Deco


I'm not sure if this mani looks more Aztec or art deco, but I like it.  With some stamping, studs, and a sunburst charm, these nails have a sophisticated look with the clean lines and color scheme.

 Sunburst Charm
I received these sunburst nail charms from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review.  I chose the design with the black centers, but it also comes in pearl and turquoise, and you get two charms in the set.  The charms are fairly large, but they have curved backs to adhere to the shape of your nail better.  The spires around the charm can be a little scratchy, but that is my only complaint.  As long as you don't pick your nose, you're good. :)  I didn't have any issues of the charm getting caught on anything.  The shape is unique and definitely worth buying.

I debated doing a turquoise, black, and gold color scheme, but you know how much I love a black and white mani.  To create this look:

  1. Apply the base colors - thumb, index, and pinky in black, middle and ring in white.

  2. Use the reverse stamping method for the aztec print on the middle and ring finger.  Stamp the design in black, then use a nail art brush or dotting tool to fill in the top and middle chevrons with gold.
