If you know nothing about the Real Housewives then I'll just explain that in the title sequence, they have the wives holding an object that represents their city. I chose to do one from all cities I've seen so far. The thumb is inspired by The Real Housewives of Orange County hence the oranges. I used Barry M Matt White for the base colour on all my nails. The orange is a mixture of Models Own Tangerine Queen and Barry M Yellow with pure Barry M Yellow at the edge and Matt White in the centre. My index finger is based on The Real Housewives of Atlanta who have a peach as their symbol. I used a combination of Rimmel Tangy Tangerine and W7 Sheer Peach and a mixture of both of those and Barry M Bright Red for the outlining. The stalk is done in Barry M Mushroom, the leaf in Barry M Spring Green with Matt White as highlights. The Real Housewives of New York inspired my middle finger with the apple being done in Barry M Bright Red with the same stalk, leaf and highlighting colours as the peach. My ring finger is a diamond for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. For this I used Barry M Instant Nail Effects Foil Silver, Models Own Indian Ocean and Barry M Blue Moon and Black for some outlining. Finally, my little finger has the maple leaf for The Real Housewives of Vancouver. For this I used Barry M Bright Red and Mushroom.
I' aware that it's quite a random thing to base nail art around but I think it just shows how lazy I am if I watch that many TV shows...and more.
Have a look at what everyone else has done this week
