Medusa Re-creation…

So the great nail artist Narmai is holding a re-creation contest. It was pretty hard to choose just one of her designs to re-create but I went for her Medusa one. Why? Well I just loved the Medusa scene from the original ‘Clash of the Titans’ film. She’s horrendous looking, that rattling tail gives you shivers, the tension of the whole scene is just amazing and as a child watching (even as an adult I suppose) it really puts you on edge. If you haven’t seen it, I seriously suggest you watch the whole film!

I made her snakes 3D by using UV gel polish and then painting on top of them. Narmai is always so creative with her nails, often using craft supplies or having 3D elements so this was my homage to her and a twist to her original design.
