Next week marks the release of the much-celebrated sequel to Legend by Marie Lu, Prodigy. I have a review up here and did a set of nails to go along with the cover:

Painting my nails while I watch a movie/ television/ YouTube videos is one of my favorite pastimes (these were done during Disney's Princess and the Frog, by the way), and these nails weren't nearly as difficult as I thought they would be.

I'll have to remember to take some in-progress pictures in the future, but these were done by covering the tips of my nails in overlapping pieces of clear tape and painting the uncovered parts of the nails black. My ring finger I just painted totally blue. I then freehanded painting the tips blue and painted black tips on my ring finger.

This is one of my favorite designs that I've ever done on my nails, I think they came out looking quite chic and professional :) Here 'til next time!

P.S. I'm coming back to college today after my insanely long winter break so expect some dorm posts up soon!


  1. Cute nails!!! How did you do them?

    1. I used tape to cover part of my nail and painted the uncovered parts black. Then, I took the tape off and painted those parts blue.

  2. Oh, I like them, and they do look professional. I might have to give this a try for my sister's wedding in a few weeks.
