Nail art for School Librarian Day April 4

Oh no I already fell behind a day. :( It's because I decided to go to the movies yesterday rather than finish writing up this post... I will own up to that! Haha.

Today I'm sharing my nails for School Librarian Day which was on the 4th. In my head this was just "Librarian Day" which is why the nails I ended up with aren't quite appropriate for school haha. I wanted to do a faux-hardcore kind of logo for this one to practice my lettering skills and this is what I ended up with. :)

Check out more under the cut!

Read or Die nail art for School Librarian Day

I started with a base of spring green China Glaze Be More Pacific and then added some blocking on top with Quo by ORLY Daydreamer on my outside nails. I covered all of my green with a layer of iridescent China Glaze Travel in Colour and then did all my detail work with black acrylic paint. The glasses are little water decals from Born Pretty Store!

My lettering was done on my nail mat and then turned into a decal!

Would I wear these to school if I was a librarian? Probably not. But they're still fun! They're a bit cheeky and bold just like the few friends I have who are librarians in real life, and I think I was inspired a bit by their personalities when I put these nails together.

Let me know what you think! :)
