LEGO Party Nails!!


Hi guys!  Today I have some really fun nail art for you.  Mr. Sparkles loves LEGOs and his birthday was on Monday.  Tonight we are having a birthday/graduation (Mr. Sparkles also now has his Master's degree in Physics, I am so proud of him!) party for him at the apartment that is LEGO themed.  So of course I needed some LEGO nails.

I only found a couple other people who have done LEGO nails online... I took my inspiration from this post on The Daily Nail.  I think she did hers with a nail art brush, which I attempted and quickly decided I need to practice more.  I switched to my dotting tools, and that worked out well for me.  The colors I used in this mani were:  NYC Big Apple Red, NYC Times Square Tangerine, Finger Paints Papier Mache, Finger Paints Black Expressionism, OPI Roadhouse Blues, China Glaze Towel Boy Toy, Orly Lucky Duck, and Zoya Pippa.  I did some mixing for the shadowing/highlighting.  Overall, I think this turned out pretty cute, and awesomely nerdy!



What is the most creative theme mani you have done??
