Scientific Stamping

Science Nail Art

Yay science.  We're going back to school with this science inspired nail art.  The matte green look gives a chalkboard feel to go with the scientific nail stamping.

Inspiration and recreation
This is recreation of one of +Elle WithL's designs that I did for her #With2LGiveaway.  I don't have the same stamping plates that she has, so it is more like my interpretation of the design. 

I had to take a bunch of science classes in college because I was following the pre-med curriculum to become an optometrist.  But the lectures were so boring, the thought of seven years of science classes that I would never use, made me switch majors.  TEN years of school later, I have a bachelors in business, an MBA, and a law degree...none of which I'm using since I'm unemployed.  Things are always iffy when you go with plan B in your life.  Hopefully I'll find a job soon, but until then...nails!

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Ulta - Envy
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Angelic White
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-401 (I heart geeks)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-408 (molecules)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-409 (double helix)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-418 (hazard symbol)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-H23 (science misc)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Matte top coat
  • Base and top coats

This is a really fast stamping design.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a green base color.  The dark green is similar to the old school chalkboards we used to have in class.

  2. Using white polish, stamp the various designs on each nail - I heart geeks (BM-401) on thumb, molecules (BM-408) on index, double helix (BM-409) on middle, science background (BM-H23) on ring, and the hazard symbol (BM-418) on pinky.

  3. Seal the designs on with a regular quick dry top coat.
  4. Apply a matte top coat...chalkboards are not shiny.
