Indie Love: Iseult

One of my biggest concerns since my love for nail art developed is the professionalism of my nails. My students generally love my nails, but I want to be sure that I am projecting an air of professionalism when I'm meeting with parents. I'm sure they really don't think about my nails all that much, but I still worry. Therefore, Open House at the school required a more subdued mani. 

I've been wanting to use A England's Iseult for quite some time, and this seemed like the perfect occasion! Iseult is a very light pink with hints of silver shimmer. It was opaque in just two coats, which surprised me for a lighter color! Once it was dry, I stamped a simple silver flower onto each nail using OPI DS Radiance. Though the flower was really subtle, I loved the effect. Next time I'd consider a grey or black to allow the flower to be more visible. Finally, I added a little silver rhinestone to my accent nail flower and I was left with a simple, professional manicure! Enjoy! :)

  2. I totally know what you mean! I used to teach middle school and high school, and they loved seeing my nails. Come parent/teacher conferences though, it was time for something more professional!
