Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge Day 5 - Gotta Love Chick Flicks!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday! I have another design for the Girly Girl Nail Challenge for you today. This challenge lasts a month and includes eight different days of nail art. Instead of trying to keep up with a new nail design each day, we have two each week. Day Five is Gotta Love Chick Flicks: We just can't resist! Wear a mani inspired by your favorite chick flick.




My favorite chick flick is without a doubt The Notebook. Its an amazing love story. If you have not seen the movie, I will not spoil it for you by telling you about my mani, I promise. Noah writes Allie a letter everyday for a year. 365 letters.




I painted all of my nails with three thin coats of Essie Bone Chilling. For my ring finger, I used a L.A. Color Art Deco Black Striper then painted a heart with a dotting tool and Julep Cameron. For the rest of my fingers, I wrote out words with the tip of a calligraphy pen. I could not get the letters small enough with polish. And calligraphy pens will not bleed or run.

  1. I've got one of those Sally Hansen nail art pens in black. It would be great for something like this!

  2. The Notebook is another one of my favorite chick flicks (I love seeing all these manicures inspired by movies I love!). And using the calligraphy pen for the writing is such a cool idea, it turned out amazing! Where did you get the pen (I am assuming it has its own ink, not the kind you dip in ink...) because I would love to try this out!

  6. Wow! This fantastic. I was looking at the pictures before I completed the description and I'm thinking you'd 'interpreted' writing. Then I looked a little closer... "Holy S%$#! Those are actual words!"

    Fantastic.

    1. Thank you so much! Yea, I was trying to write actual words. Granted, some of them look like scribble. But Noah did write Allie the letters. Men generally scribble.
