Today must be the happiest day of the year. Not my birthday, no – it’s International Nail Art Day! This day holds a special place in my heart, as a nail art and nail polish lover. It makes me so happy to think that other people love this as much as I do, and that there’s a day to celebrate our mutual obsession! Not to get too sappy, but my life has truly changed since the day I discovered nail art. Honestly! It reconnects me to a life-long love of color, glitter (when I was a kid I used so that my favorite color was sparkles – no kidding), and art. It regularly brings me to a sense of work-flow, as I patiently layer elements that come together into a design. It’s brought me new friends, in the form of blogging buddies. And mostly, it brings me to a happy, satisfied place in my life. I’m so thankful for the world of nail art! I’d like to with you all a happy International Nail Art Day! I’ve chosen to celebrate this holiest of days with an 80’s geometric inspired nail art look, using new to me polish brand Nanacoco!
I went to town freehanding this look with a small nail art brush and Nanacoco shades Feeling Love (yellow), Pirate’s Bay (teal), Tender Love (pink), and Don’t Be Dumb (purple – side note, this is weird name). Nanacoco is a new-to-me polish brand that I discovered on the last day of Cosmoprof Las Vegas, and I received these shades as samples. I found the polishes pretty easy to work with, and I really like this color selection. However, they were a little thick and on the goopy end of the spectrum, and not as highly pigmented as I would have liked. Also, for some reason the yellow polish just had a ton of bubbles in it, though that wasn’t true of the other shades. Overall, I would say that for the price, I’m willing to put up with a few flaws. Oh, did I mention the price? It ranges from $1.99 – $3.99!
Nanacoco polish can mostly be found in salons and beauty supply stores, where it retails for $1.99 – $3.99. It’s definitely a bargain brand, and has some really interesting polishes, which I’ll post more about another time! You can also find Nanacoco online, though it’s not retailed directly through their site.
Happy International Nail Art Day! Hope you’re off celebrating with some funky nails.
