Creative musings in bright colors

Erasers

As I have mentioned previously, I hate the color yellow. I bought my first yellow polish with one goal in mind: to create pencil erasers on my fingertips. It has taken me almost 6 months to finally go through with this goal, but I like the result!

I don’t know what captivated me about this design. I think I saw it somewhere vaguely on pinterest  a long while back, and it just stuck with me. So, when I won another yellow polish in a recent giveaway (ugh, yellow!) I decided to use my yellows to create pencils. And an eraser 😀

The base for this mani is Mind Your Own Beeswax by Spoiled. It took three coats to be opaque, but the coats went on very smooth and dried remarkably fast! It is a deep yellow shimmer polish. My only complaint is with the brush: it was very thick and not very flexible. I made quite a mess out of my pinky since my nail-bed is so narrow!

The secret to this design was actually in the dark silver polish. I chose a metallic polish so I could magnetize it and bring some depth to the silver! I think it came out rather awesome.

  1. This looks great! love it

  2. These look amazing!

  3. These are so fun! Love them 😀 What topcoat do you use? 😀

    • I have a cheap and a less cheap one. My cheap one (I think it was 99 cents) is NYC In a New York Minute quick dry top coat. My other one is Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat. They both work, although I prefer the Revlon by a tad!

  4. This looks awesome! And I would have never thought to use a magnetic polish for that, but it turned out great 😀

  5. Wish I had an excuse to try this mani!

  6. Omg! Love!!! I would adore seeing these nails on my TA…or myself! 🙂
