And the Oscar Goes to…

So, I'm watching the Oscars, and figured, what the hell, I'll do the Oscar Red Carpet looks!! :) I did two basic tuxes, a Robert Downey Jr. twist with the blue-green bow-tie, and then the dresses of Penelope Cruz and Tina Fey (or at least my nail interpretation of them). :-D

I used OPI Alpine Snow Matte as a base on the tux nails, and Urban Outfitters Matte Nude 3 on the dress nails. For the tuxedos, I used OPI for Sephora What's a Tire Jack? Matte for the main part of the tux, and then Zoya Raven for the lapels and buttons. For the RDJ bow-tie I used a mix of Zoya Jo, Zoya Raven, Nubar Forest, and Pure Ice French Kiss. I'm sure that I could've created the color by opening a bottle, but I seem to like making things difficult for myself. :-P For the Penelope nail (red dress), I used Zoya Dea for the cleavage, and Zoya Posh Matte for the dress. For Tina's dress, I used OPI for Sephora What's a Tire Jack? Matte as a base, and painted Amour Black Glitter over it. For the cleavage, I again used Zoya Dea.
