Yes, you read that right: I did just use the name of a teenage boy band as a post title. And yes, you are correct if to assume that this manicure is related to the band. And dingdingding! correct again if you guessed that I have the boys' faces on my nails! :D
My infatuation with the lovely British boys from One Direction started last summer. If you haven't heard of them then please go check them out. The band started off on the X Factor so they really can sing! They all have great voices and even better looks ;) They're currently taking over North America and I can't get enough of them. My favourite song from their album, Up All Night, is probably One Thing. You can watch the music video here or watch the acoustic version!
So back on topic: I figured that with five boys and five nails there was no way that I could pass up this idea. In fact, I wonder why I hadn't thought of this earlier!
The method involved printing tiny pictures of the boys' faces onto a piece of newsprint. Then I used dipped each image into rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) and rolled it onto my nail to transfer it. I'm not sure if it was the paper, the ink or the method but the images didn't transfer very cleanly. Still, I think they're quite recognizable and remind me almost of an old film strip... in colour... or something.
I used OPI Alpine Snow on all nails. From thumb to little finger we have Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik.
I hope you like these fun nails as much as I do!
Do you like One Direction? What are your favourite songs and who are your favourite boys? ;) For me it's a tie between Zayn and Louis but I do love them all <3
Thanks for dealing with my lengthy fangirling and see you next time!
