Nerd 101Since I'm now back on my lovely home computer with all my pictures on it (Ah, I love you, my sweet little Mac) I thought I'd show you how I made my Nerds nails that I entered in Leslie's contest. (I didn't win anything, by the way, but I greatly enjoyed it and I thank the 13 of you that voted!!!)
First of all, here are the practice ones I did. I couldn't do all the same ones since my nails were smaller than the ones on the wheel. :( I really liked the parachute one but my nails are too teeeny.
First I painted my nails the base colors.
Then I drew outlines in a Sharpie pen.
Here's the thumb (he's my favorite).
Then I filled them in with the main colors.
Lalalala thumb again.
I did their eyes and another layer of color
And filled in their eyeballs. They looked a little demonic at this point.
Voila! The final product.
Another thumb one, just because he's the best...
Here was my station when I was done with it.
Aaand here's all the polish I used. There's a ton so I won't list it, but if you want to know just ask!
For my first freehand nail art, I don't think these guys are too shabby. You like?
