I am so stoked today for two reasons: 1.Sherlock Holmes Season 3 debuts tonight and I can finally stop plugging my ears and singing "lalalala", whenever someone brings it up. And 2. I did a Sherlock-inspired mani for the occasion. I am forever trying to up my game in the freehand nail art department so I wanted to use this as an opportunity to do so.
I had three main inspirations for this design. This awesome piece of Sherlock artwork from Etsy, Sherlock's famous address and of course the iconic damask wallpaper and smiley face from the show.
I started with a base on white polish and used black, white and yellow acrylic paints for the details.
My favorite nail is the damask one though I gave myself a small pat on the back for the Sherlock profile since I tend to suck at those types of things and it actually looks pretty good! Check out all of the #ManiLocked2014 across social media today. Or post your own and be sure to use the hashtag!
