Jason Wu. The nails are gorgeous (hard to believe this is inspired by the concept of the French manicure — it is so much better) and the makeup is amazing.
Fashionable nails + nail art.

Blaxidermy - Nail Art- Khem & Khenet
In Egyptian mythology, Black (Khem) represents night, death, resurrection, life, and fertility. Yellow & Gold (Khenet) represent the sun: eternal, divine, and imperishable. So, you get the uplifting & timely metaphor I’m working with on this black and gold crackle nail design…

This is GORGEOUS. I’ve never seen a crackle quite like that! And I love the meaning behind the colors.
