The step by step for the ruby Red Slipper is in Nails Magazine (UK) on page 40.
I was in the office the day they shot the step by step and Samuel (the Geek) just handed me the brush and said, "You do it, Gigi"!!
So I did it .. first time I had ever used the Metro powders and we did it in one take!ª!
There was only one nail to do as I think Samuel or Diane Plummer had already done the others and they had been rebalanced several times. I thought the finished photo was a lovely shot as well, and it was Danni (Samantha's assistant) who composed the hands ... very pretty!!
Just a little insider info for ya ... I always love to hear these stories.
Geeg if you don't mind, for those of us across the pond and who don't have the opportunity to read the mag , could you describe exactly what you did? I have heard of "Ruby Slippers" only within the past couple of weeks and it's been described only as a nail polish. What you are talking about is an L&P application so I'd love to know more!
Thanks Mui, I found the post with Ruth's pic - very pretty! I feel silly now, because I have been wearing some version of this for the past month myself I used red and green EZFlow Boogie Nights glitter (L&P) and alternated them on each fingertip.
Oh well, good to see I didn't miss the boat entirely...
