A2Z Nails and R is for..

Redo/Reboot/Recycle


Hi there lovely readers, another Thursday and another letter in the A2Z Nails Challenge. This week's letter R had me really panicking on what I could do! So I searched Google for some inspiration and found a nail art by Robin Moses. You can check out Robin's video here.
My base for this was a matte black made with Nails Inc New York Noir and Jess matte topcoat.



I had already applied the matte topcoat in both pics...silly me, but I'll blame it on the horrible cold I have at the moment. Just can't stop sneezing!!
Anyway back to my nails. So for my R nails I went for reboot, and these circuit chip nails seemed perfect.


So with these acrylic paints, a thin nail art brush and dotting tool I carefully painted the design on my nails. Topcoat to smooth and seal...done.




Not a usual look on nails but so cool, and I'm so happy with my freehand skills! 
Hope you like this too. Take a look here to all the the A2Z manis from this challenge so far.
Stay safe and much love....
