Don't let anyone dull your sparkle! Nail art with a message
Hey ladies! My nail art wants to tell you something, and I think it's important that you open your ears and mind and that you listen closely. I have been seeing comments that are bullying. I've seen comments that are downright hateful or aggressive. And I freaking want it to STOP! But... you can't change other people. So what I want to do is tell you this: don't let anyone dull your sparkle!
You are good at what you do. No matter what anybody else says. If you feel like it's something you love and something you're supposed to be doing, shut your ears when someone foolishly tries to convince you to stop. As long as it's not hurting anyone, who the freak cares?
I was always told I couldn't draw. I was told I shouldn't try because it looked like nothing. But hellooo look at where I am now? Thousands of people see my nail art every day. But it wasn't until I was away from school, away from scrutiny, that I was able to develop my skills. I wish I had been strong enough to defy what everyone said and just made my own road.
SO sparkly! You won't believe me when I say it but this is even MORE HOLO in real life! I swear!
Herôme Oslo and the Rimmel SuperWear top coat. I used this particular top coat because it's not super fast drying and thus more suitable for a gradient. Or at least that's what I figure, I didn't try it with a different top coat to compare!
I top coated my gradient and painted the text on top. Again, I need to practice my text nail art. I don't think it's very legible...
Anyways, I put top coat on it and called it nail art. So there!
