Xbox nails!

Hey everyone! This design was repeatedly requested by my boyfriend and his best friends for months before I actually got around to it, and I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't do their request more justice, because this is really not my best work. I did these around 2 months ago and I've been strongly debating whether or not to post them for a very long time because I really am not proud of them, I think I really messed up the execution and they could have been much better. Nevertheless, this blog is a gallery of my work and I spent quite a long time doing these and it would be a shame to waste that time!


I cant really remember much about these because I did them so long ago but I know that the matte top coat was MASH - Matte Top Coat.* Which, as you can see it's not quite as matte as most top coats, but I actually really like it like that, especially for these nails which didn't need to be too matte. It also dries super fast


What do you think? Am I being too hard on myself or could these do with improvement? If so, what improvement? Let me know in the comments!

  3. I think the matte is perfect for this look. It really replicates the controller.

    These are really great. The only way that could be more incredible is if you did your thumb with a glow in the dark polish. Talk about realistic, LOL!
