Hello lovelies!

Anyways, onto the nails!

Yesterday, we visited the 80s. Today, we're visiting the 70s (or at least my attempt at the 70s) woo!

Here's what I used:

Today's nail art was inspired by this pattern. The pattern links back to a site called Wallpaper From The 70's (welp, that would have been a good place to look for ideas....) but I can't find it on the site. But you all need to go look at the wallpapers! Some of them are so cool and I want all of them on my nails....like right now....I better start painting....

I started these nails with two coats of Echo Park and a layer of HK Girl. Using my striping brush and acrylic paint, I freehanded on the stripes which I just did randomly and didn't worry too much about whether or not it looked like the original. Everything was sealed in with another layer of HK Girl.

My nails don't look the original design but I really liked these! This was actually the design I wore during my presentation last week which went pretty well, so yay, this might just be my good luck nail art design haha.


Thanks for reading guys!
