I heart nail art.

July 17, 2009

I went to a private school in the suburbs of Chicago, and there was a point during 8th grade where I was coming in every single day with a different nail color and DIY design. It was so much fun, and I’d always experiment with odd colors: green with black stripes; white with red polka dots; orange nailbeds and hot pink tips. It eventually caught the teachers’ attention, so they sent out a note home that nail polish is no longer allowed during school hours. That sucked.

So, when I saw my cousin Sabeen’s nails today, it totally conjured up memories of my short stint of nail polish creativity.

I LOVE this. Subtle colors but still statement-making. What do you think? Do you ever paint nail designs too?

    Hey Melissa! Thanks for your comment — I’ll definitely incorporate more tutorials…Sabeen’s the expert, so let’s see if we can get her to do some? For this one, she used regular Scotch tape to make the lines perfectly straight.
