i am a huge fan of rupaul’s drag race. i have been watching it religiously since my girl raven pranced into the workroom (or should i say werk room) six years ago!
i just watched season eight’s first episode and i have high hopes for a lot of the queens (i’m still sort of nervous after last year’s drudgery). this season i’ve decided i’m going to try and paint my nails every week with a drag race inspired mani. i hope i can do it!
my first mani is inspired by laila mcqueen’s entrance outfit. very beetlejuice. and i love her blue/purple hair.
i did a sponge gradient with model’s own pukka purple over my beetlejuice strips of sally hansen french white créme and kis spa12 black striping polish. the purple covered really well – i was worried about only being able to see the purple on top of the white stripes but this polish is very opaque and didn’t need a heavy cover.
