Learning to Write Inspiration

Base Color: H&M "Lavender Luster Duo"
Lines: Loreal "Dreamer"
                  L.A. Girl "Soft Red"
Writing: Santee "Black"
Pencil: Color Club "Almost Famous"
Eraser: Sally Hansen "Espresso"
 Metal Band: Revlon "Metallic"

I was teaching my son how to write his name today when I had the idea to re-create it on my nails.  Every mom should do this, Joshua has been getting a kick out of this all day.  It also made me wonder why pre-school writing paper was brownish and not just white.  Anyway this was a really easy cute manicure.  Mostly just some lines and a steady hand.  The thumb was pretty easy as well.  I used 1 piece of tape to make the yellow bottom half of the pencil as straight as I can.  It didn't really matter if I messed up on the pencil or eraser because I was going to go over both with the Metallic color.  Try it!  I have the Summer Giveaway gift all ready to go, I just have to take pictures of it.  It's been busy at work for me with the July 4th holiday but I'll get the pictures up tomorrow.  Thanks for visiting!!
