She Who Does Nail Art: Stickmen

I've been a member of this group on Facebook since its inception, but somehow I haven't got around to joining in with a challenge until now!  There've been some awesome themes that I'v missed as well, silly me!

So the idea of this group (which you can find here if you're interested) is that each week there's a different theme, and you can post as many manicures (or as few in my case..) as you like for that theme.  It's a bit more laid back than other challenges, there's no specific day you need to post or anything, so it's worth checking out if you're looking for a relaxed challenge.

The theme for this week was stickmen.  Now...this is rather embarassing.  I actually did this manicure Tuesday night.  I was using my Sharpies, so I painted my base, seche vite'd and left plenty of time to dry before drawing on my design and all that faff.  I only did it on one hand, so obviously I removed it for work the next day!  So I'm in work on Wednesday morning, and as I was washing my hands I was thinking about the manicure, and the thought hit me "er...I don't remember taking any photos of it...".

So yeah, I'm an idiot.  This is version 2 of the manicure, that I repeated on Wednesday night!

I used Barry M Matt White for my base, and then just doodled with Sharpies.  The skinny ends of my red and green have dried up though, which is annoying!  I shall have to invest in some more I think.

What do you think?  Have you had a go at notebook nails?  They're actually something that's been on my to do list for ages, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get them done!

    1. Thanks :) The only trouble with Sharpies is they can smudge when you apply top coat, which can be a bit of a nightmare!

  2. I tried notebook nails once, but never got as far as to take pictures of it. It was a total fail, and I haven't tried it since :D
    Yours are nice though! :)

    1. Thanks Ithi :) I have forgotten to take pictures before when I've been wearing something for a few days, but this I literally did, let dry and then removed! At least it was a quick mani!
