I normally don't have long enough nails to really do anything worth while on them. But one of my students suggested that I do some nail art....
I feel I should preface this with the fact that I have NO patience and hardly have any nails, because I'm a nail biter.
I decided to do a funky geometric pattern in mint and coral.
I taped off half my nails, like so. FYI, I highly recommend leaving the tape flat - don't fold it over the top of your finger like I did on my index and middle finger. It lies nicer without folding it.
Then I painted the top half of my nails with the mint colour. It's a really crappy nail polish from Urban Outfitters, but I bought it for the colour :)
Then I impatiently waited for my nails to dry...... once I had waited as long as I could I carefully peeled the tape off. Ta da! I considered leaving them like this - mostly because I'm so lazy and thought they looked bad.
Then I carefully painted the coral on the bottom and finished with a top coat. Not too bad if I say so myself.
And no, I will not be showing you my right hand.
It's always impossible to paint and never looks as nice!
