The first manicure I gave was band-inspired. Like any other 14-year-old girl, C is obsessed with a boy band. (No, really. She totally knows more about this band than I knew about N'Sync, and that's saying something.) I feel old and out of the loop saying this, but before yesterday, I had never heard of One Direction. (embarrassed!)
The band consists of 5 guys- four British guys and one Irish guy. So naturally, we did four British flags and one Irish flag.
Then, I did C's little sister's nails. M and I looked through photos on Pinterest and she settled on a mani that I had pinned a while back- all white nails with some black dots forming a pretty tribal-type design. We played with the idea a little and came up with this:
It was fairly easy, quick and it turned out really cute! I think I'd like to do something similar to this on my own nails soon. I used a ballpoint pen dipped in a drop of black polish to do the dots.
