Jimmy sent a request in for some Aztec inspired nails and I finally got to it late last night!  These were actually way fun; in grade school I loooooved doing reports on Aztecs gods, so this took me back to those long nights at the table.  For the mani I started with a two coat base of nubar Caramello — GORGEOUS.  Just… thanks nubar, again, because these metals are simply stunning.

Then I used acrylic paint to add in the Aztec inspired artsy stuff. First the partial face of Tonatiuh on the pinky, Tlaloc on the ring, an Aztec serpent (done Ouroboros style) on the middle, and Quetzalcoatl on the index finger. Thanks Jimmy!
