School Daze

Here’s a mani for those of you who unfortunately have to go back to school!  I never thought it made sense to go back in August, then have the Labor Day weekend, but it seems that school starts earlier and earlier.

I was a good student, but I hated school. Mostly I hated being picked on all the time, so if I had done this theme mani when I was actually a student, it would have featured a machete or something. Luckily, I graduated just before Columbine, so I probably wouldn’t have been arrested on a weapons charge.

I had to bust out some nail tips for this since I kept smudging on my natural nails. I included a pencil, chalkboard (matte!), marbled composition book, and an apple for some color.  The thumb is a bit wonky- it was supposed to be a sheet of notebook paper. I think if I re-did this mani, I’d use some of that really thin colored striping tape.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

    Jen you are such an inspiration with your art. I also love you writing. You just cracked me up reading about school. I wasn’t a lover of it either. I think I was a person who could’ve been a better student if I’d waited a few years to go to school. I think I appreciated things better now that I’m older.

    All of these are awesome! I think the marble is my favorite. I can’t believe I’ve already been back in school for two weeks and we just kicked off football season this weekend. It should still be summer!

  11. Sarah-Anne says:

    Yep, two weeks. Tomorrow begins week three, but I can’t really complain because before two or three years ago we went back the FIRST week of August.
