Well.... here it is. Going up against one of my nail besties sucks but I’m happy for both of us regardless of the outcome. So here’s mine and Trisha’s nails for NTNA’s Last Chance Design Lab this week. Swipe for both of our pieces and my description is below.
—————————> A love note.... For this weeks challenge, we were asked to do a “hand-written love note on a single nail tip”, hand- painted only. I chose to go with a quote from one of the most iconic romanticists in History, William Shakespeare.
Being that we were asked to write a “hand-painted love note”, I clearly had to keep this short and sweet for obvious reasons! But I really loved this quote so I wanted to do more research on where about it steams from. Only to realize that there is much controversy over it being a true quote from Shakespeare himself or the work of Arrigo Boito, an Italian poet and librettist. It is said to be from his libretto for the 1893 opera Falstaff.
Interesting as it is and where this quote was actually conceived, I still love its innocence and pure form of the the state of attraction that love guides you in. So, I chose to write my letter on what appears to be an aged parchment background with some classic stationary framing, signed by “Will” with a heart stamp at the bottom to seal the letter.

Alright... here’s my Last Chance Lab Design for this week. We were asked to create something on a single nail tip of two things that don’t go together, yet work. Here’s my entry. (There is no public vote since I’m currently in elimination round. Votes are solely judged by Jan Arnold of CND and will be announced by Thursday of this week) ————————————————— Fact: It doesn’t snow in Jamaica. And yet, this year marks the 30th anniversary of the first ever men’s Jamaican bobsled team that broke records at the Calgary Olympics in 1988. On top of that, this year is the first time in history that a group of women have come together and will be competing in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
It is amazing how these men and women, with very little funding and NO SNOW to train with, are competing in such an intense winter event at the Olympic Games. This just shows that just because something may not seem to go with the other, all things are possible through focus and determination.

Feel the rhythm. Feel the rhyme. Get on up. It's bobsled time.

For the NTNA’s “Last Chance” round, I’ve been asked to create 1 single futuristic nail.....
Nail of the Future.

For this challenge, I got inspiration from “futuristic movies” of the past. Think, The Fifth Element meets Mad Max! I wanted something Edgy and Punk with a little..... weird. The dress from the female character in The Fifth Element really spoke to me and I wanted my Nail to kinda vibe off her dress in a sense but with a darker feel. For the base of the Nail I used mirror chrome and did some line work to make a sort of “Optical illusion” design. I used a hard gel to make a dome-frame around the Nail and I covered the dome with hologram chrome. I then added a chain to the dome and to frame the nail itself. I added a jumper ring to the tip to my Nail to connect the chains and also wanted the option of adding a chain/s for a full set of nails to connect or added jewelry pieces for that runway look. ————————————————-
This Nail will be judged solely by the fabulous Ms.Jan Arnold later this week so stay tuned to see if I made it through to the next Last Chance round!
