Aztec Nails Inspired by One Nail to Rule Them All

Happy Saturday polished world!  How are you all today?  I guess we're supposed to get snow, you know after it was 50 degrees yesterday.  Spring, can you please wake up?  I really would like to start wearing a Spring weight jacket again and put away my Winter coat.

Today I'm bringing you a manicure I did a few weeks ago after seeing this glitter aztec manicure tutorial by One Nail to Rule Them All.  I fell in love with her design because it had two things I love; silver and mint.  How can you go wrong?  So, I grabbed my polishes, nail art brush, and got to work!

Let's take a look!  Pardon the photos, they look kinda cruddy.

Colors Used:
  • Orly - Jealous Much?
  • OPI - This Crown Needs a Gown
  • OPI - In True Stefani Fashion
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Orly - Instant Artist - Black
  • INM - Northern Lights
I really love this Orly mint polish.  It has a perfect mint shade with the perfect formula.  I'm rather impressed lately with every Orly I've purchased in the last 6 months.  I've become kind of addicted and they're slowly becoming my favorite.  If you may or may not remember, Orly Liquid Vinyl is my favorite black, and the Instant Artists are my go-to nail art polishes, so it makes sense that all other Orlys would follow.

Can we also talk about how awesome This Crown Needs A Gown looks with a top coat of In True Stefani Fashion?  The satin finish with the holo square hexes and the random smaller silver glitter honestly was gorgeous in person.

For my design, I followed One Nail to Rule Them All's tutorial for the top half, then I kind of just did my own thing towards the bottom.  I like how they turned out!  I'm most certainly going to do more Aztec manicures in the future!

What do you think?  Fan of the manicure?

I hope you all have a great weekend!  I have lots of manicures to share with you over the next few weeks and some new tutorials!  Can't wait to show you!

Until next time, <3.
