Digit-al Dozen geek week day 3 - robot nails!

Hey guys! This post is going up RIGHT before the cutoff for day 3 of geek week but I made it! I didn't have time to do my nails last night so I had to wait until tonight but I finally made it.

I have this cute robot necklace that my sister gave me and I've always thought about doing nails based on it, so I decided that this week would be a good time to do it!

Dressed Up Nails - robot and rhinestone nail art

These started with a base of China Glaze Tart-y for the Party, a beautiful pastel lavender with a perfect 2-coat formula.

I used my mid-length striper brush to paint the robot shapes in China Glaze Icicle. These were pretty easy because they were just a rectangle and semicircle with cute arms!

After the silver was on, I used my tiny detailing brush to do the outlines in American Apparel Hassid. I wasn't going to do the outlines at first, but the silver definitely needed a little more detail and I think the black finished it nicely.

Finally I attached all the rhinestones with a little bit of topcoat and then topcoated the whole thing.

I think these turned out pretty cute and I love the colors together! What do you guys think?
