The Digit-al Dozen Does Childhood - Day 2: Hopscotch

Hello and happy Tuesday! I'm back with another childhood-themed mani for Digit-al Dozen Week! This one is pretty self-explanatory (or at least I hope it is! LOL).

Continue reading after the jump.

First, I must apologize for the drastic difference in nail length and shape from yesterday. I did these last week in preparation for this week but then one of my nails decided to break so the rest of the week will be like yesterday's nails. I had pretty much decided not to even use this mani but today is crazy so I was glad I had it already prepared!

Now, onto the mani! Who hasn't played hopscotch at least once in their life? It's often too hot for kids to play it here but if you can find some shade and a not-too-hot day, it's great fun!

I used a base of China Glaze Silver Lake, which is still a go-to for nail art after 2 years. The rest was done with acrylic paint. I tried to make them look "chalky" and imperfect, as they would look on the sidewalk. I topped it with Pure Ice Girl on the Run followed by Wet n Wild matte top coat.

I hope you enjoyed and I will see you back tomorrow for more Digit-al Dozen Childhood Week!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
