40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Geeks

Friday, 16 October 2015

Hello my pretties!

It's time for the third installment of the '40 Great Nail Art Ideas' challenge and the theme this week is 'Geeks'. This was a little difficut for me because I had soooo many things I could choose from, both me and my other half are (in my opinion) chic geeks hahaha! After much deliberation I decided that the thing I am most nerdy about is... Planning! I spend hours online scouring the world for new planner goodies and papercraft gadgets, I watch YouTube videos and read blogs galore on the subject. I plan every single day and I unashamedly LOVE it. This mani is inspired by next years planner already on order from America - The Day Designer in 'black and bone'.

Kicked this off with two coats of Barry M White and left to dry thoroughly before taping off some horizontal bands and painting the black in Avon Licorice. I then used gold striping tape on every other nail and added cute little stickers from Born Pretty Store to a couple more. I used the inner part of a nail design vinyl from She Sells Sea Shells for my blue post it note and finshed the whole thing with topcoat.

I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out and it's got me excited for the arrival of my new planner all over again, it cost a small fortune but will be so worth it as a major upgrade from my current Molang diary which I love but is just too small!

    1. Thanks Mina! I was the same for so many years, by March the things were always bare and abandoned lol! Now I have so much on that I can't live without it!!! It motivates me at the start of the day and helps me wind down come the evening :)
