Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge - Back to School

On to the second and last week of the Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge! I like how this challenge isn't daily so I can continue to participate between work, class, and life in general. But it's often enough to still be fun and for me to get my nail art fix. For today, back to school nails!

I had a lot of fun doing these nails. I just kept pulling out polishes and colors to make different designs, and by the time I was done, I had about 14 polishes on my desk! I decided to try some different ideas such as school supplies, new shoes, and a blackboard. I like how they all turned out! 

On my pointer I chose to do a red shoe. I suppose it looks like a red Converse shoe in particular, but back to school time meant new shoes for a new year throughout grade school. It was the only time I got a new pair, so it was always exciting to me. 
For the other nails, I did a piece of notebook paper, a blackboard, a pencil (eraser end), and an apple. I applied a matte topcoat to the notebook paper and blackboard nails to make them not as glossy, but put Seche Vite on the apple, shoe, and pencil. 

I used a lot of colors for this, but that just makes it more interesting! From left to right: Wet n Wild Black Creme, Wet n Wild French White, Ulta Cream of the Crop, Zoya Jacqueline, OPI Red, Warpaint Beauty Matte.

I also used quite a few nail art polishes! These ones have the thin brushes inside, and are all Max Makeup Cherimoya. The colors: Miss Sergeant, Red, Teal Tale, Charcoal, White, Neon Yellow, Pearl Silver, Pink Lady

So many polishes, and so many details this time! But so worth it. I enjoyed painting these, and I think they're really cute.
