So here is how my nails looked once I had painted 2 coats of the matt black. Let me tell you, this stuff dries super fast! It was great! Next I had to come up with a design to paint on them with the chalk paint.
It has a skinny brush so that you can do intricate designs. Although, I don't know anyone that would be able to draw something freehand neatly on their nails, especially when using their non dominant hand!
I decided to get out my trusty nail stickers to make the design as neat as possible. I opted for a lightning bolt effect using these stickers (number 7).
So here is the finished effect! What do you think? Probably not as neat as I would have liked. In fact, I quite like the black on it's own. I'd like to try out using just the matte black together with a shiny black, like in this post. Although I think you would need to use a matte top coat if you wanted these to last for more than a day, as it does seem to chip quite easily. So I'm not quite sure how you would get a top coat to work with that design!
What is your take on chalkboard nails?
