Apr 2: World Autism Awareness Day

April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day. Blue is the color of support, and I have a special blue mani for ya'll today.




I used Zoya Phoebe (matte finish) and white acrylic paint. Can I just say acrylic paint may change my nail art life forever? It's so easy to work with, and I love that you can just wipe it off (or scrape it off if it's dry) and it's more opaque than any white polish I own. I can't wait to try more nail art with it!!

My inspiration:

OK, for realz this time, I need to go study. My big exam is next Monday and I've literally done a days worth of studying in the past 5 weeks. I need to get serious. Sorry if I'm lacking in commenting, but I promise I do look at posts! I've got like 300+ posts in my unread Google Reader. But it'll be a welcome study break activity!
