Peace, Love, and Happiness

When I see things like this I think "oh wow, that's cute. I want that on my nails!"

But I had no idea how difficult it would be to draw Chinese symbols on nails. It was difficult to even get it remotely close to what my symbols looked like.

If you haven't figured it out by the title, the symbols on my nails translate to "peace" (index + middle), "love" (thumb), and "happiness" (ring+pinky).

Um...well, I tried.

For this manicure I used black as my base. I let that dry then took a nail art brush and OPI Who the Shrek Are You? and slowly drew each line of each symbol. Once I was satisfied with the symbols I finished off with a thick top coat.

I guess it's not all that bad. I do like the index and middle fingers, they turned out pretty good. I think it would have been better if I used a thinner brush.

Thoughts?
