Fashion Friday: Louboutin Python Inspired

Hi everyone! It has been quite a while since I've created a fashion inspired manicure so with my nails about the maximum length I wish them to be, it was time for Louboutin nails. I have done the "classic" black Louboutin before, so I wanted to try something new. For those that don't know, a Louboutin manicure is one where the underside of the nail is painted red to mimic the soles of the shoes...

The manicure was inspired by these gorgeous python pumps... pardon me while I regain my train of thought after staring at these...

For the base polish I used Sinful Colors GoGo Girl and stamped it with Zoya Carey. The stamping plate is Mash-42 from their new set. The pattern of the scales isn't quite the same, but it is the closest that I have for now. I love how it turned out...

Sinful Colors GoGo Girl is a bright pinup red jelly. Application was very easy, no dragging or bald spots. Three coats was enough to hide most of the nail line, but it is still faintly visible. The swatches are from about a week ago when I wore it on its own. It looked great at first, but after a day it looked cheap. Does that make any sense?

Thanks for looking!

  1. This looks so great!! Those shoes are HOTTT!!

  2. Perfectly executed, this looks great!

  3. Great mani!! Love it!! You nailed it!

  4. Those shoes are gorgeous! And so is the mani!

  5. Very cool! I would love to do a louboutin mani, but I'm scared to paint the underside of my nail, and not be able to get the all of the color out when I take it off!

  6. I love your manicures inspired by clothes&shoes!! They are just great!

  7. You lost me at Louboutin lol! This is great but I would have done a grey base with red scales since that's how the scales on the LP's look. Darn I have purposely avoided looking at Loubies for a while now as to not create any craving but those LP's....

  8. @MariJo, I know right? The shoes are gorgeous. I'm glad you like it :)

    @GaffoRama, thank you so much! Glad you like it :)

    @Ruxi, Thank you! Thank you! :)

    @TikiBarbie, I'm so glad you like it. Thank you! :)

    @Angie, removal is not as bad as it seems. Just stay away from staining polishes. That could be a mess :)

    @ritterbraten, thank you so much! That means a lot to me :)

    @katiee, thank you! :)

    @CaitieRoo, thank you so much! Glad you like it :)

    @Lacquer Lockdown, sorry for the new cravings! :)
    That is so interesting that you would reverse them. When I look at it, I see the red glowing from underneath the gray. It doesn't help that I don't have a good stamping red, so I couldn't reverse even if I wanted to :)

  9. Wow! They´re exactly the same!
    You´re great! :-)

  10. fab.u.lous. both the mani AND the shoes!! :)

  11. cool, love to take it for a walk - both the shoes and the manicure :-D

  12. @Lillibit, thank you so much! I tried. I'm glad you like it. :)

    @Carolina, thank you so much!!! :)

    @MzCherrie, thanks! :D

    @laura, thank you! It helps to have good inspiration and those shoes sure are pretty :)

    @nail crazy, you an me both. I'd love to take those for a walk! Glad you like it. Thank you :)

  13. you need to give a tutorial on how to pull this off, if you haven't already. I saw Adele had this look at an awards show and i thought i looked to cool. Yours looks just as amazing, if not more so. :)

  14. Okay, this is HOT! You paired these shades so well together!
    I have a softspot for inspired by posts and you truly created the BEST ones!

  15. @Angelica, I'm so glad that you like it! I've trimmed my nails, but when they start to grow out again, I'll try to make a tutorial :)

    @Marta, thank you so much! It seems that a lot of people like the inspired ones. I need to do them more often :)
