#UONIGHTOWLS – BOOM THINGSDecember 3, 2014
So there you are, standing in front of the mirror, looking damn fine in your party outfit, when suddenly something feels amiss. ‘What is it?’ You ask. ‘What’s missing!?’ Then BOOM, there it is, clear as vodka lemonade – your nails do not match your phone case.
It’s an oversight that affects millions of party outfits every year, and with little support available, nails all over world can be found unmatched to accessories.
Well fear not fellow night owls, for we’ve asked nail artist and thing maker, Emma Zentner, to inspire us all by matching up her nail art designs with the new collection of Boom Things iPhone cases.
“I studied graphic design at university and have always loved intricate patterns, so when I started Boom Nails, my designs naturally took on this aesthetic. Whilst working on new designs the thought occurred they would work really well on objects too. And so, Boom Things was born”. – Emma
Choose three colours that match your case. Apply the first base coat all over the nail and let it dry. Apply the two remaining colours by using a small sponge for the faded effect. Make sure you allow each layer to dry before applying a new one.
Use a black nail art pen to add the line detail, starting from the top of the nail and working your way to the base. Apply a clear topcoat to make sure the nail doesn’t chip when scrambling for your phone.
Here’s some more Boom-shaped inspiration.
