Every once in a while, I get the itch to do a really complicated and time consuming mani.
Usually, it's because I'm trying to impress someone. In this case, I was giving a guest lecture, and I wanted my nails to be FAB. I thought this design from Wacki Laki was pretty awesome, and I wanted to do a version of it.
I started with Zoya Cassedy, a foil silver-leaning green.
Then, I placed striping tape diagonally across the nail - I tried to do one from the corner, and one from the middle of the tip. I also tried to have the top stripe come down about 1/3 of the length of the nail.
I probably should have paid better attention in math class.
I painted over the tape, carefully, with Zoya Storm, one of my fave black glitter polishes. I finished the look with some silver square studs. I probably should have used smaller square studs, but I didn't have any. I have child-sized hands, apparently.
Nothing makes me feel more uncoordinated than trying to do nail art on my right hand! I keep at it, though, hoping I'll get better. I really love how this turned out!
One person in the lecture noticed! Score! Have you ever done nail art to impress someone?
