Happy Tuesday all! Polish Days is upon us again and this month's theme is "5". Yup that's it. Numero cinco. So...you can imagine the blank spot in my brain when I read this. I mulled it over for some time and then finally got tired of thinking about it so I just tucked it away until last night. I sat down to do my nails with slight panic since I still had nada in the way of ideas. So I just started Googling the number 5. Don't laugh at me. Google is my friend in moments like this. And it didn't fail me - I decided to go literal with the theme. But with a twist!
I decided to do the number 5 on all my nails in various languages! I started by painting my nails with two coats of American Apparel Cotton. I then used my new dual tipped nail art pen in Black from Born Pretty Store to draw on the numbers. On my pink I have the hindi number 5 character, on my ring finger the roman numeral for five, on my middle finger I have the chinese number five character and on my index the Arabic number five character. On my thumb I painted on the English number five. I used my favorite matte top coat by Butter London to mattify the design.
Though this idea is a bit obvious I am really pleased with how it turned out! I am still in the infancy stages when it comes to painting script or typography on my own nails so I am really happy that it doesn't look like chicken scratch!
