Day 1 of the Nerdy Nail Challenge–Inspired by the Elements

Alright, you’ve got me. Call it a New Year’s resolution, but I have always wanted to do a series of science-inspired nail art which resulted in this completely made up challenge entitled the “Nerdy Nail Challenge” where I will embark on another journey of hopefully fun and maybe even educational designs for 31 days! I will be posting as often as I can, but this definitely won’t be an every day thing like the traditional almost stress-inducing 31 Day Challenge.

For my first design, inspired by the elements, I am referring to the elements of the periodic table for which I was inspired by Au and Ag; more commonly known as gold and silver. I’ve always wanted to do a structured “dotticure” so I started off with the only black polish I own, OPI – Black Onyx and then dotted on OPI – Goldeneye and Sally Hansen XTremewear – Celeb City for the large dots and filled in the spaces with Color Club – Antiquated.

    1. Once you get the feel of dotting and what I think of as "committing to the dot" you'll be good to go!
