Playing Fast & Loose(leaf)


Today's nails started out in my mind as just sheets of looseleaf paper, but I told my friend Erik (of Vegas Made Me Do It fame) of the idea, and he suggested that I add letter grades, so there you have it.



I used Sally Hansen All the White Stuff as a base, with a mix of Sally Hansen All the White Stuff and China Glaze Salsa for the pink lines, a mix of Sally Hansen All the White Stuff and Zoya Yummy for the blue lines, Zoya Raven for the holes, China Glaze Salsa for the grades, and Essie Matte About You to make it flat. Real pencil was used after the matte dried to draw on the squiggles to look like writing. :)

Did it make the grade?

  3. It looks really great! But I have to wonder, does the pencil not rub off of the nails since it's on top of the finishing coat?

  4. This is so creative. Your ideas get better and better and the pencil marks made me smile for some reason. So clever!

  5. Ah great idea! But why did the others get low marks? I think that's totally undeserved! I protest! LOL.
