New nail designs! To be honest, I am not really sure what inspired this particular design. I was just thinking that I wanted to do something with my nails, preferably something that left half of my nails clear. Eventually I decided I wanted to use blue in the design and give the purple and greens a bit of a break. This was the result:
Honestly, I hadn’t really realized how long my nails had gotten until I painted them this way! My nail tips are blue (Midnight Blue from Sinful Colors). I traced the bottom edge of the blue-tips in white and drew a small swirl going up in one direction and then down in the opposite direction using a nail art pen (Sally Hansen in Pearly White). I then traced the white lines with silver glitter nail polish (Beware from Pure Ice). Finally, I applied a couple of coats of a clear top coat to seal in color and protect the design (Quick Dry Top Coat from Revlon).
So now, when I go to interviews I no longer have chipped nails! I tried to keep the design fairly simple but classy none the less for this exact reason. I’d rather employers pay attention to me and my qualifications and not particularly how I dress, although I know that’s wishful thinking. Still, I’d rather present a nice polished look and not come off as someone who spends too much time in a salon, if you catch my drift. So nice, but understated.
