Day 7: BLACK AND WHITE nails

One week down, still a few left to go of the 31 Day Challenge, I hope you are all enjoying this as much as I am. Just a side-note, I hit 100 Followers yesterday!! :D I'm so excited I plan on having a giveaway in June once this challenge is done... so stay tuned! 

Today is actually my first day back to school.. I know, summer semester, yuck! But I just finished a 4 month work term and now I'm heading back to classes for the next four months. So, since today is Black and White day I thought it was only appropriate to incorporate back to school nails.

I have seen this "doodle" design on a few blogs, but I originally saw it on mad manis and loved it because it reminded me of junior high school when I used to doodle in my notebooks. The 'Smile' really brought me back! 

So without further ado, I give you Black and White nails...


Finger Paints Paper Mache is the base. 
Blue lines are freehanded with L.A.Colors Nail Art Deco Sky Blue & the doodles are freehanded using Finger Paints Paper Mache Black Expressionism and my trusty nail art brush.




I also give you my infamous right hand (with stubby nails, bc they always crack on me).. my left hand didn't do too bad with the details right? lol  Unfortunately I had a little smudging with the top coat but no biggie..


Don't forget to check out the other 31 Day Challenge participants.. there has been some seriously awesome manis so far from each of these lovely ladies!

  10. Thanks :) ... I have 2 spring "intersession" courses, which are compact and last until june 25th, then I have a course that lasts the entire summer, now until august. And another "Intersession" course from June 25th-August... it really is a bummer.
