Crocodile Shoes

Crocodile Shoes Nails

When Holly Golightly first meets "Fred" in Breakfast at Tiffany's, she asks him to find her black crocodile shoes. These nails are a playful take on that scene, which was the beginning of a love story.

 Breakfast at Tiffany's

Salon Supply Store graciously sent me the Breakfast at Tiffany's Style Icons Mini Lacquer Nail Polish Set by O.P.I., so I'll be posting nails inspired by the movie all week. This first polish, Apartment for Two, is a bright raspberry pink like the pillows on Holly's couch. This pink polish is bright, but still classic and posh like Holly. The polish coverage is great, so you'll still get a lot of use out of this mini bottle.

Be sure to check out Salon Supply Store for all your polish and manicure needs.
Nail Polish

Polish Used:
  • O.P.I. - Apartment for Two
  • Bundle Monster stamping lacquer - Black Noir
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-213 (heels)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-224 (crocodile)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-220 (crocodile tip)

  • Krazy Glue

Black and pink is always a great color combo, so I wanted to do some nails inspired by Holly's black crocodile shoes. This mani just uses some basic stamping, but the the bright colors and cute little bow really make an impact. To create this look:
  1. Apply the base color using Apartment for Two.

  2. Use black stamping polish to stamp the various designs on each nail.

  3. Glue a black cabochon bow on the base of the ring finger.
