Michael jackson inspired mani #1 "Scream"

Hi, there!

Thanks for taking a look at this super late edition of Tiff's Tasteful Talons! It's MJ week here on my blog, because his birthday is this week (the 29th), and I wanted to continue the tradition I have in dedicating this week to the King Of Pop. It's also the first week back at the dance studio, and classes started tonight for me; being the reason for me posting so late tonight. Well, I'm glad I got to get this post off before midnight eastern time, so let's take a look at my first mani shall we? I drew inspiration from one of my favorite MJ short films, "Scream", and I hope you can see some resemblance. Enjoy! 

There's a whole going on here, between the black, silver chrome, matte and shiny stripes. You can obviously tell that I created the stripes by using striping tape, a must-have for pulling off something like this. That silver chrome polish at the tips is the famous "Push and Shove" chrome and base duo from OPI, that provides that chrome-like finish that regular metallic polishes just can't. I also used one of my Sally Hansen nail art pens to make the little "7" that you see on my ring nail. I really like how this came out overall, even though I don't think I'm all that great at nail art. I do however, see that I am improving, so that's a great step in the right direction! 

Ok, so that's my first post for MJ week here on my blog! Stay tuned for another look on here tomorrow! Have a good night, and don't forget about my #manisformj on Instagram on the 29th! You can follow me if you haven't already at @tiffstastefultalons :)
