Day 1's theme is Back to School, and I realized when working on this mani, that this is my first year since preschool (19 years ago) that I'm not participating in "back to school", and it made me kind of sad. I still have to finish my thesis, but I'm not buying books and pencils, and finding new classrooms and things like that. Oh well - guess it's part of growing up! For my Back to School themed mani, I wanted to recreate notebook paper - I was such a dork growing up (still am) that I got SO excited to get fresh new notebooks for school every year. I was a weird kid. Anyway, I got the inspiration for this design from a bunch of images on Google.
And here's another shot in the shade, where the colors of the lines really stand out more. I used NYC French White Tip for the base, Stripe Rite in a blue shade (unnamed) for the paper lines, and a Sinful Colors nail art brush (I forgot the name) for the pink margin lines. The dots are Sinful Colors black on black, dotted on with a bobby pin.
