I’m a Numbers girl. I loved accounting so much that I got a degree in it. Then the teaching bug bit and I became a Maths teacher. It is only natural that, as a Maths teacher and nail art enthusiast, I combine the two for an art explosion that is literally at the tip of my fingers.
Years ago when I still knew very little about nail art or stamping techniques I saw this photo online where my friend @Jemma91 had painted the most awesome Mathematical nails. I had no idea how she managed to get it so neat and tidy or how she managed to write the formulae or draw the shapes with a paint brush. Little did I know about the art that is nail art!
So I thought: “I’ve been painting my nails for a while. I’ve been watching (read: falling asleep to) Youtube videos on nail art since forever and I have these awesome nail art pens. How hard can it be?”
It turns out: VERY! It was the biggest disaster of all time. One of my colleagues even told me how sad I was for wasting my time like that… I realised the nail art pens I bought was a complete scam so I tried doing the design with a toothpick. As you can see, this was a massive #nailfail moment!
It turns out that the more you practise the better your skills get.
Earlier this year I had another go at some Mathematical nails. I have had a few years experience and my darling hubby surprised me with a stamping plate for my birthday. It turns out that was exactly the images I saw on Jemma’s hands. Excited didn’t even cut it. This time round, I think they were almost Pinterest-worthy!
