No Doubt Nails

I'm the type of person that gets tired of my nails after about a week, so when I find some inspiration for some new nail candy, I take it and run with it. After watching No Doubt's performance on the TCA's - yes, I watched the TCA's for this performance-a lightbulb went off when I saw the pants Gwen Stefani was wearing - they were kind of reminiscent of the artist, Keith Haring, and his black and white work.  But that wasn't it...I remember a photo I spotted on Tumblr a while ago with simple patterns and there it was. I scavenged for the photo, found it and mustered up the courage to actually attempt these seemingly simple brush strokes on my nails and voila, here is my attempt at the wonder that I found online brought to light by the sickest person ever, Ms. Stefani.

Long story short: have fun with your nails - I did it free-handed, so if I can do it...anyone can!

PS: Is anyone else as excited as I am that No Doubt is making new music again?! So I'll leave you with their newest song 'Settle Down'.
