It’s TIFF season! One of my most favourite times of the year! To celebrate I had to do a TIFF design for this Mani Monday and I’m pretty happy with the results.
I attend TIFF every year. This year I’m seeing 6 movies and did a little stargazing last night when I met Idris Elba at his movie premiere. Make sure to check out my Instagram for the picture!
To create this design you’ll need only 4-5 nail polishes – white, black, orange and gold.
For the index and pinky fingers start with a white base then take your black polish and create a thick curved line. Once that has dried for a few minutes, take your white polish and create little rectangles along the two edges of the black line with a nail art brush. With a very thin brush, take your white polish again to create the separate sections of the film reel. You could also make the middle sections gold if you wanted to add a little extra glam.
For the TIFF logo, start with an orange nail polish base then take your white polish and a nail art brush and carefully draw out the logo. You can practice on a piece of aluminum foil before tackling your actual nail. Always remember that you can take some of your base colour afterwards to fix anything.
Lastly for the ring finger, take a gold glitter polish and apply 2-3 coats until full opacity is reached. You can also add a gold shimmer top coat over the glitter polish to add a bit more sparkle and shine.
Polishes Used: Wet n Wild Black Creme, Revlon Marmalade, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Revlon Transforming Effects Gold Glaze, Sally Hansen Golden Rule
Hope you enjoyed this Mani Monday!
