Mani Monday – Nerdy Nails

Nerdy NailsThis is a set of falsies which I painted for a friend. She was celebrating her 18th with a night on the town with ‘nerd/geek’ theme fancy dress and a round of pub golf  report cards. I designed this set for her: Broken glasses; A+ report card; Plaid; Classic yellow pencil; Tooth with Brace; Bow-tie and Braces; Ruler; Initials Element; Newsprint text; N.E.R.D.

All done entirely freehand, expect for the newsprint which was done with newspaper. I had to apply the polish quite thickly as the false nail set already had a leopard print on it. I tried to use as few colours as possible (based on her outfit) to ensure they looked like a set and not a complete mishmash.

I used: 17 ‘Fairy Cake’ (pale pink); Nails Inc ‘Black Taxi’ (black); 17 ‘Mini Skirt’ (white), Nails Inc ‘London Sky’ (grey); OPI ‘ What’s with the Catitude?’ (pale blue); China Glaze ‘With Love’ (red); Unnamed Fearne Cotton for Boots (bright pink); Nails Inc ‘Carnaby Street’ (yellow); Models Own ‘Lemon Meringue’ (pale yellow) and Unnamed Fearne Cotton for Boots (silver). All finished off with a healthy coat of Seche Vite top coat.
