I made this nail art to a nail art challenge, the theme was Kairo. Since I really love ancient egyptian culture I knew exactly what I want to paint. Scarab, eye of Horus, Ankh and some hieroglyphs. I used THIS picture as an inspiration for the hieroglyphs, for the other details I used some pictures of a book(C. Desroches-Noblecourt: Life and Death of a Pharaoh Tutankhamen, 1963).
My fave motive is the winged scarab, I really like how it turned out.
I used both nail polishes and acrilyc paint for this design, everything is handpainted.
How do you like this design?
