Hannah’s graduating from high school this month (go Hannah!) and asked for some calculus nails before May 26th — done and done! Instead of focusing just on the numbers I decided to use more of the graphs for this one, which worked out for a subtly nerdy manicure (on first blush it just looks like a line-based sort of pattern going on).
I started with a 3 coat base of L’Oreal Versailles Romance, a sheer-type peachy number that has been waiting around to be tested for months now. A little underwhelmed by it really; nice shade, and I like the pearly finish, but getting an evenly opaque coat even after 3 passes was a bit of a struggle. I wish I could be one of those one-coat-sheer-and-go chicks, but my nails are just crazy stained after so many different colors being put on the nails that I *have* to go opaque at this point. Oh for the love of nail… Once that dried I used some black acrylic paint, real ink and the smallest brush I have to add in the calculus bits — totally overshot the scale on this and probably should have gone larger, but the educated geek should know what I was going for here.
Happy graduation Hannah, you should be very proud of yourself!
