Inspired by The Supernatural has always seemed to me a very uninspiring prompt. As far as I'm aware, Supernatural refers to ghosts and the paranormal which isn't a subject I have much interest in. So this year, I've deviated a little and let myself explore mythology and folklore to search for some inspiration.
The topic I chose for today's nail art is Runes. There's a huge history attached to Runes and their uses which I know very little of so I won't pretend to be an expert but I do know that they appear in a lot of myths, legends and magical stories! I took these particular runes from The Mortal Instruments book (and now film) series, kind of a 180 from the old legends I've been harping on about but still Runes nonetheless!
Check out the image on Cassandra Clare's website HERE to find out what they all mean.
I used Barry M Lychee as my base colour and painted on the runes using a nail art brush with black acrylic paint. I topped it with one coat of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat, then one coat of Rimmel Matte Finish for the umm... matte finish!
