Fall Into Autumn Challenge! 1 - Back to School

So here is challenge number one in the Fall To Autumn challenge. Most of the ladies from the Lazy Days Of Summer challenge are doing this one as well. This time we are doing one a week. I still have to do my last one for the LDoS. Anyways, the first challenge is "Back to school". I wanted to do something different and new for me. I decided doing crayon nails would be cool so here they are.


I'm not too happy with the end result. I forgot how sheer the nude color was so I had to apply a few coats. The China Glaze Four Leaf Clover and Kleancolor Neon Purple both bled on to the nude. Oh, and a hair found it's way to the blue nail. Besides that I think they look cool. If I do these again, I will take a different route. Maybe putting the nude on first with a top coat then painting the crayon on top. I dunno.
The colors I used are: Essence The Boy Next Door (blue), China Glaze Four Leaf Clover (green), Julep Sasha (orange), Julep Rose (red), and Kleancolor Neon Purple (purple). I used China Glaze Nude for the nude part and Wet n Wild Black Creme for the stripes.

    1. Thanks :) I almost thought about doing newspaper nails to represent pages in a book but wasn't sure I'd succeed in doing that.
