DEXTER Week - Some Killer Nail Art

It's DEXTER Week this week on the blog - 5 full days of KILLER nail art!! The final season of Dexter airs this month and I'm really excited to see how they wrap up the show, especially since there were so many close calls in earlier seasons (like season two, amirite?!). Today's art is a summary of the show for me - the juxtaposition of Florida being beautiful, but also sort of dangerous and crime-y. And I'm really proud and happy with how today's nails turned out - take a peek!

I did sunset-inspired gradients on my pinkie and pointer; if you're curious about any of the colors just ask, but they're pretty subtle because I painted directly onto a dampened makeup sponge and then sponged it on my nail. The caution tape inspired middle nail has Revlon Electric as the base; at first I did a more abstract tape pattern (below) but I didn't think it matched the other nails well enough so I re-did it and now I REALLLLY love it :D The palm trees and Dexter's work outfit were all done with acrylic paint and small brushes!
