Back to School Nailart
Hiya guys! Where has the day gone?! It's like the hours are racing by but I suppose that's a good thing when it comes to work. For once, I'm actually ahead of the game and have my posts all scheduled this week. Got to give myself a little less stress during a high time in the year. I really can't wait until September and taking part of the everyday nail art challenge. Finally, going back to my roots aka nail art. I miss those simpler days sometimes. Anyway speaking of nail art, it's time for another challenge from the Freehand Nail Art Facebook group. Today's prompt is the last one for the month and it's Back to School.
Here's my look:
I thought I would show you guys what it would like look without the doodles too. I was almost tempted to stop here and just seal it, however, I wanted to finish up my 'vision'. I kind of wish I would have used striping tape or nail vinyls for my lines, but at the same time I wanted some freehand practice. Strong lines are fundamental for art and as I always say it's my weakest point. I'm really digging this design without the doodles as much as I am with them. I'm not original and it's been done a million times, but I'm still pretty proud of myself.
But notebooks only stay empty for so long before they are filled up with school work, right? Well I don't know about you guys but my notebooks had doodles everywhere. They actually ended up having more drawings than actual work haha. So here's my finished look:
Polishes used: my ultimate go to white polish Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On and the topcoat is also from Sally Hansen. I wanted a matte finish without it being too overwhelming so I chose the one from Sally's I Heart Nailart line. Everything else in this was completed using acrylic paints.
I hope you guys like my simple, but cute back to school nails. Would you like to see a couple of more looks for the occasion? Or a detailed tutorial on this look? If so, let me know down in the comments.
