It's time for another edition of Nail Art for Nubs!
This week, I take a Pinterest pin I saw for a gorgeous black & white French and dotticure from Saida Nails, and adapt it for nubbins.
I won't lie - it would probably look better on longer nails. But, I won't let that stop me!
I started with Julep Teresa, a light - and a little frosty - pink. It's the kind of color I wore as a young girl - the only color I was pretty much allowed to wear!
I dabbed on some of the Orly MatteFX Pink Flakie. Totally changes everything, doesn't it? It's amazing... it's mind-blowing. It's.. well, I can't tell the difference. Sorry.
Going for the Goth French tip with Cult Nails Nevermore. When you have nubbins, creating the deep curve in the tip can give the illusion of longer nails.
Now, a white stripe straight across the tip, with Cult Nails Tempest.
Using my black art striper came in handy for evening out the black and fixing little mistakes I might - MIGHT - have made. Not that I make any. Nope. I'm all about perfection on this blog.
I used a dotting tool for the alternating black and white dots. If you think you're never going to use math again after high school, try making a line of straight, alternating dots (doing only one color at a time) without using a little mental calculation.
As you can tell, I was never very good at math.
Look, Ma, both hands!

So, what do you think of this black & white French? Pretty crazy!
