Nail art based on the popular board game of "Life"
These were inspired by the nail art below by Frippery Digits

The "LIFE" lettering is based on the popular board game of the same name.

I changed mine up a bit from the original project and spelled out "LIFE" on the index through pinky nails, then put a black highway with white dots in the center and silver for the shoulder of the road.

    Step 1

    I used Magenta, light blue, light green and gold for index through pinkie fingers on each hand, allowed to dry then used the small brush dipped in white polish for the lettering.

    On the right hand side I painted the lettering upside down and on the right I painted it right side up.

    For the thumb I used silver for the "shoulders" of the road, black for the pavement and white for the stripes in the road.

  • Step 3

    Getting the lettering to look decent on you own nails is tricky and I had to do some nails more than once - if I do this again I am going to try printing the lettering out on a label, cut out the lettering with an X-Acto knife and then stick it to the nail after applying the different colors to give it a more professional appearance.
