BBC Sherlock Holmes

Request for nails inspired by the BBC Sherlock series. It took me forever to decide how to do these, choosing between the iconic images of the series but the ones I settled on are nice, simple and recognizable 🙂

  • For the blue-ish background, start by painting the nail a nice blue
  • Take a small bit of washing up sponge (clean), and paint a tiny bit of black on it. Sponge onto the nail
  • Repeat the sponge-process with a silver polish, then (if you overdid it) blue again
  • I used a white nail pen to draw on the designs, but you could try with a tiny paintbrush or similar


If you are thinking of doing nails based on this, here are some iconic images for you to play around with;
