Inspired By: Lana Del Rey

I am a little bit obsessed with Lana Del Rey. I have been listening to Ultraviolence on repeat since it was released which is a bit sad really but I don't care! As well as loving her music I think the art direction in her videos is really beautiful. I love that vintage LA vibe she has going on. 

Despite loving her work and being generally inspired by LDR I found it quite hard to think of suitable nail designs. A lot of the imagery I had in mind didn't work together so it took a couple of attempts to get this right. Here is one such nail fail - the sunset nail just did not work with the look at all. 

The nails in my final was inspired by Lana's songs and videos: The blue roses from her Born to Die crown, the USA flag features in several of her pics and videos, the palm tree from West Coast, the denim from Blue Jeans, and the thumb just kind of fit. 

Next time I really want to try making my own decals with some Lana pics. Maybe I'm a bit too obsessed!
