Alan Turing

I was inspired to create this look earlier this week for a Kyoti's Nails contest I am entering. It is to commemorate LGBT Pride Month. I chose Alan Turing for my inspiration before I realized that today is his birthday! Here's a video about him:

I went with a dot-matrix design of 1s and 0s because of Alan Turing's work in the field of computer science.
On to the manicure!!!

For this manicure, I mixed my Nailene French Manicure sheer pink and white as the base. All of the rainbow colors are custom made from eyeshadow that I got from Shiro Cosmetics. The red has a little polish in it too, as I didn't have a bright red shadow to use. It is made from Subrosia (no longer available) and China Glaze Riveting and Flirty Tankini. The orange is Ricky. The yellow is mostly Likelike with a dash of Goron (both sold out). The green is Farore's Wind. The blue is Oshus. And the purple is Majora's MaskHave all of these names sounded familiar? They are from The Legends Collection, inspired by The Legend of Zelda video game series.

I really hope you like the design and the thought I put behind it. Let me know what you think in the comments below!


  1. I am really curious about the eye shadow palette now

    1. It's a really great collection. I got a lot of sample-sized packs during a sale. You can see them all at!

  2. Any particular reason you picked 43? :)
