Hey Everyone! I am tired!! This whole new school year and getting back into the swing of things is crazy. The child already has lots of homework and is going to the music school after school as well so it is hectic. It might take me a minute to get a good schedule down. Still no word from the school but his teacher is trying to help get things done and he told me to keep calling because the counselors are slammed!! I really wonder about the state of the school system but I better not get into all of my views on that. The bf keeps hovering asking me if I am done too so I better get to the nails!
Today's school themed mani is
Chalkboards!!! I loved chalkboards in school, especially when we had colored chalk. When I was a kid my mom got me cool black contact paper and rigged me up a chalkboard type thing on my closet door. I was a mega nerd and this was simply awesome on many levels.
I used WNW Ebony Hates Chris and a white polish for the writing. I then used two coats of my Hard Candy matte top coat. It smeared the white on some of the nails which wasn't cool but it added to the effect.
I initially did this mani using the dotting tool to create the writing but one of the nails got messed up and I wasn't happy with the overall look so I redid them. I have one of the Sinful Colors striping polishes in black and I wiped off the brush and used it with the white. It worked MUCH better.
Over all it came out pretty good but it was so much cooler in my mind. Next time I will try and improve on it.
Now I must run off and do tonight's nails! Oh, I think I converted my mother to a glass file tonight. YAY! She uses emery boards and the sound alone drives me nuts. I told her to try the glass file and I think she was impressed. I think she was most impressed with the fact that it lasts forever as long as you don't break it.
That's all for now :)
