8th Grade Graduation

When I graduated eighth grade my mom took me to get a manicure (this was before I started painting my own nails). Shockingly, and it's a little odd I remember this but still, they were very similar to how I just did my nails. Obviously I have always paid close attention to nail designs! This time it's a brighter pink, a thicker black, and a straight line silver.
For this look: I started with ULTA Always A Bridesmaid as a base and then painted the top half of each nail with Orly Liquid Vinyl. Then, I separated the two colors with a line in Essence Silver Surfer line and finished it all off with a coat of Orly Won't Chip.

What do you think of the half and half look?
Let me know in the comments below!


  1. would it work with a black dress

  2. Yes definitely! In fact, the dress I wore on my eighth grade graduation all those years ago was a black A-line dress with an inch of pink around the top.

  3. what hair style i should do for the eight grade graduation with the black dress?


  4. What type of nail designs for back to school?

    1. Oh no! I'm just going back through these old posts and I'm ashamed to say I never saw these comments until now :( I'm sorry I couldn't give you the advice you were looking for but I doubt you need it now (being 2 years later at this point). Congratulations on graduating 8th grade, I'm guessing you're a sophomore in high school now? I hope your nails are polished! =)
