Hurray, another Artsy Wednesday! I have so much fun designing and painting my nails for AW every Wednesday, and seeing what everyone else came up with 🙂

This week the theme is inspired by music. My nails are inspired by Die Antwoord, a South African “rap-rave” group who are an incredible mix of hilarity, sex and politics. They’re a bit offensive and not for everyone. Here are my nails:

And here is the video that inspired them:

For my nails, I started off with a base of ulta3 Lily White and sealed it off with topcoat. Then I drew all over my nails with marker and finished with more topcoat. No smudges, win! 🙂

I also performed a ninja-inspired dance to this song at a recent amateur night held by my dance studio. I’ll be posting my makeup look and a video when the professional photographer there on the night uploads his photos 🙂

Wonder what the other girls did…

  1. I must know because I was discussing this with my trainer the other day, did you use a regular permanent marker?? We were totally wondering if that would work and stay when we add a topcoat lol. Oh and I totally need to check out this music…when I’m not at work. Never heard of rap-rave before…

  2. @Natalie – Thank you! 🙂

    @Kerker – non-permanent water soluble marker, I’ll do a post on it soon!

    @Leah – it actually depends on the marker and topcoat… took me a while to find a good combo!

    @Maria – Thanks lovely 🙂

    @Polish AMOR – Glad you liked them!

    @Elissa – I haven’t either, and when I tried on a nail wheel it smudged something horrific, but I found a marker which works now 🙂

    @POLiSHED*GENiUS – Thanks! 🙂

    @Lexie – I couldn’t stop listening to them for a month when I found them!

    @Jacqueline – Hee! I can’t take credit though!

    @Ms Lizard – That sounds awesome! I hope they come back here soon, I’ve heard so many good things about their live show!

    @PrettyPurplePolish – Thank you! I have no idea what half of them are though… marshmallows on sticks?

    @Lacquer Lockdown – Thanks! I have one video but the quality is terrible, hoping that the second video is a bit better!

    @sandipalien – All the permanent markers I tested smudged like crazy! I used water soluble marker.

    @Pickle – There is, but I’m hoping a better one will surface soon!

    @Catrine – Thanks hun! xx
