The Digit-al Dozen Does Geek Week: I Heart My Nerd!!
Hi loves!!! Its time for another edition of Digit-al Dozen nail art... this month our theme is Geek Week! I cannot tell you how excited I was for this. I am a bit of a nerd, and Mr. Sparkles is more than a bit of a nerd. (Nerd is not to be confused with geek, because, as he has informed me, geek is a much more negative term than nerd.) Either way, I just had to do this mani.
As a bit of background, Mr. Sparkles is a rocket scientist who is currently working on his PhD in particle physics. Hence the atomic heart nail. He is also super sexy in his black framed glasses, so I had to include those in there. Mr. S has inspired a few of the other manis I've got for you this week... Dungeons and Dragon nails, anyone?
The technical bits behind this mani... I painted all my nails with two coats of MASH Nail Art Polish in White. I cheated a smidge and used a black Sharpie marker for the lettering on my index, ring, and pinkie nails. It was WORLDS easier than trying to do the lettering with a paint brush.
On my thumb and middle finger everything was freehanded with a small nail art brush and MASH Nail Art Polish in Black. For the heart and electrons orbiting the heart I used OPI You're A Pisa Work.
I hope you guys are excited as I am for the rest of this week... I can't wait to see what my other lady friends have come up with!
Take a peek with me!!
