Monkey See Monkey Do Monday - Love Love

Morning!

Finding nail art for nubs is tricky. I like gradients and funky French manis, which aren't great for super shorties, and glitter (which I am trying to avoid for a while because I'm sure the removal doesn't help my peelies). But I pinned this mani a while ago and thought it was so simple even I couldn't get it wrong, and it would look ok on my baby nails.

I was right! I used 2 coats of OPI Steady As She Rose as a base, and a black striper polish for the lettering. It was so easy I even managed to do it on my right hand!




I really do love this mani! I repinned it from nailene's Pinterest board, and it doesn't have a source blog or feed, so if it's yours or you know who the original pin belongs to, please let me know!

Any more MSMDers today?

  3. So pretty! I would be really tempted to wright love on one and hate on the other, but that's just the rebel in me ;) That base color is gorgeous, did it take many coats?

    1. I was tempted, but I didn't think I could pull off a more "hate"-ful font! The base only took two coats too so that was a bonus!x

  8. It's really cute. I definitely couldn't have gotten my 'wrong' hand to match up though. Have you tried a tribal mani - they work well on any length nails (except maybe your little toenail).
