Gatsby Inspired Nails!!

Guys. Have I told you how excited I am for The Great Gatsby?!?? Well I AM SO EXCITED. It looks flawless and I love that book. It was one of the only books I actually read in highschool, and one of the only ones I actually liked, hahaha.

Oh yea, and Baz Luhrmann, and Leo, and Tobey and Carey and Isla. I've been listening to the soundtrack since I bought it on Tuesday and I'm so obsessed with it and it's just making me more excited! EEHHHH!
Ok I'm done. Anyways, I had to do some Gatsby inspired nails for the occasion. They're basically just 20's Art Deco-esque gold accented nails. Some gold and glitz and of course a spec of green. I've seen some really cool art deco nails that would have been perfect but I didn't want to copy anyone and I hate working with striping tape. However I'm completely impressed with myself for getting my pinky pretty perfect!

Do they look like Gatsby Nails to you??
