NAILS | Neurons Revisited

Six years ago, I was a crazy person and participated in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge with two very dear nail blogging friends and did these neuron nails as inspired by the book Still Alice by Lisa Genova. I feel like my photography and nail art skills have improved in the last couple of years (and hopefully KEEP improving with every passing year!) and wanted to give neuron nail art another go for old time's sake. I don't know if this came out any better than before, but at least I didn't take my photo in the dark! Before I started using a ring light for nail photos, I used to take my photos RIGHT after I did my nails at night just in case I ruined the design before I could take photos in daylight. I only wish I had gotten a ring light years ago and saved myself the stress!

Some PR samples featured

There really wasn't a lot of nail polish involved, mainly acrylic paint to draw the dendrites and myelin sheath of the neuron. I am also sorry for my colour choice of the myelin sheath as they look like a chain of sunny side up eggs!

Base: OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White* and China Glaze Fairy Dust
Pointer: Purple and black acrylic paint, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Granny Smith Apple*
Middle + Ring: Yellow, purple and black acrylic paint, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Sunset Orange*

Neuron Nail Art

I cannot believe it is Thursday already! The last weekend of July!!! Where does the time go? I will be off to an event tonight for the launch of the new MAKE UP FOR EVER foundation so make sure to follow along on my Instastories for a sneak peek!

What other science-themed nail art would you like to see me attempt? I'm trying to put together a few designs for September's Back to School theme!
