Manicure Monday - Back To School "Graded Paper" Nail Art

Happy Manicure Monday!!! I can't believe it is almost Back To School time - I spent a couple of hours this weekend getting Damian all prepped for heading back to school, so it is front of my mind!

This week's #CBBxManiMonday theme is "Back To School" which is very fitting of my current life situation (my son is going in to Grade 8). Make sure you check out Jayne from Cosmetic Proof, Trysh from Prairie Beauty Love, and Eithne of Tea & Nail Polish to see their take on our weekly theme - they all do amazing nails!

What better way to represent Back To School than with Graded Paper nail art?! I never got good grades while I was in Highschool - my favorite subject was always my spare periods and lunchtime. But, once I got to College and picked a field I was interested, I did way better, so I've seen this whole range of grades on my papers!

Manicure Monday - Back To School "Graded Paper" Nail Art

Here are the steps I followed for this manicure:
1. Nail cleanser and base coat
2. Two coats of white polish
3. Using a light blue polish and a nail art brush to create horizontal lines across the nails
4. Then, with a red polish and nail art brush, create a vertical line for a margin
5. With black polish and a fine nail art brush, create the letters 
6. Let dry well and finish with top coat! 

It's not a hard manicure to complete; but, it does take a skinny nail art brush and a steady hand to write the letters!
