NOTW---Tribal Art

Update: I'm not sure why I forgot to upload these nails, I did them about a month ago.  But I still wanted to share them with you.  I have two more that I need to upload, so be on the lookout for those.

For this weeks "Nails of the Week" I have decided to go bigger than I ever have before.  I was a little puzzled as to what I should do with my nails this week.  Last week I did a bright pink with silver and black criss-cross lines over top with silver and black flowers on the middle fingers (sorry I don't have a picture).

So this week I was planning on doing just a plain design with maybe a shimmer polish. BUT, I just recently discovered and as I was searching through their nails section, I found this design:   

As you can see, I modified the pointer and pinkie a lot, while I just changed a little on the thumb because that detail was just a little to detailed for me to handle.

Left Hand (I'm left handed so I think I did a pretty
good job with my right hand)

For this design I used Orly- Luxe, OPI- You Don't Know Jacques, and OPI-Arctic Snow, along with a black and white striper.  As difficult as this design may look, it was very easy if you just focus one detail at a time.  I hope some of you will try this design in the future.  If you do, please comment below and let me know how it went.

Until next time <3

NOTW-Valentine's Day

Yes, it is early Thursday morning, but I did paint my nails last week for that special holiday that was on Tuesday. I used OPI Arctic Snow and OPI Big Apple Red, alternating in each finger and then painted the opposite colored dots. In was really easy and I think made for a cute, simple design.

This holiday was a little different because my brother was away at college, so it was just my mother and I. But he still sent us a card and my mother and I had some gifts for each other. And at school, even though I'm in 11th grade, one of my classes had those candy boxes. You know, the ones where people walk around and slip a valentine in them.

Overalls it was a good day. Tell me how yours went!
