Hello lovelies!
I have a quick post for you guys today because I have class at 7:45 this morning….yeah, you read that right. 7:45 and I’ll still be in the same class when this post goes live. I’m not a morning person so this is going to take some getting used to…
But, onto the nails!

Brownie points to whoever guesses what album cover I painted here. And a lot of them because I feel like a lot of people don’t know of this band which is sad because they’re awesome!

Here’s what I used:
Okay, so that question was a bit of trick because this band technically isn’t around anymore. The album cover that I recreated is Now, Now Every Children’s Cars. I say technically not around anymore because some of the band members are still together, they just write music and tour under the name Now, Now now….yep, you read that write too haha! Here’s the album art:

These nails started with 2 coats of Sally Hansen’s Black Out. Then using a ripped up piece of make-up sponge, I lightly sponged on White On. The lines were added on using acrylic paint and my small detail brush. When those had dried, which was super quick because of the paint, I lightly sponged on some more Black Out. Everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.

My nails aren’t spot on for the album cover but I still think they look really cool. I wish I could have worn these longer but I’m super behind on painting nails for my posts soooo yeah haha. The photos look better today too! Woo!

Thanks for reading guys!

  • Thanks so much!

  • Haha thank you!!

  • Thank you! They're a really great band but not many people know about them.

  • Haha thanks! I would totally rock this for Fall nail art! And you know, it actually wasn't that bad. I definitely needed a nap after though haha

    Looks lovely! I really like that aged look when you sponge over something!

  • Cool inspiration, I love what you did with it!

  • Yeah, I never would have guessed the album, but it is perfect! Great re-creation!

  • Awesome job recreating that album cover. And you're right Ive never heard of that band before, or even the new name they are touring under. Good luck with your class!

  • I haven't heard of this band but you did a great job recreating the cover!! This could also double as some great fall nail art too! I hope you made it through your class easy peasy, I'm not much of a morning person either!

  • I really like this! I have not heard of this band but I'm definitely going to look them up, even if they are now disbanded. Great job 🙂

  • You recreated the album cover for it perfectly! Very nice.
