Nail Art: The MTV Logo+Vote for Taylor!


Please Note:  If you have a problem with Taylor Swift, I ask that you keep your feelings to yourself and that you just focus on the techniques used in the nail art.  Thanks!

Hey guys!  I know a lot of you are going to think I'm kind of a dork for doing this nail art, but my fellow Taylor Swift fans have been doing some cute things to get people excited to vote for Taylor, and I wanted to join the fun!

What is Taylor eligible to win?  Two MTV Video Music Awards!  Her video for "I Knew You Were Trouble" could win Best Female Video and/or Video of the Year!


I'm sure you're getting flashbacks to the infamous Kanye West microphone-grabbing incident, but don't worry:


So, yeah, I really want Taylor to win, and I decided to show my support through nail art:

I feel like that MTV logo is my masterpiece, haha

Products used:

Background:Rainbow Honey Mint Flavor
M-Rainbow Honey Apple Kid and Rainbow Honey Tessie
TV-China Glaze Snow
Outlines and text-Orly Liquid Vinyl

Brush used:  10/0 American Painter 4650 Spotter

I've created a little step-by-step guide for the MTV logo!  Clearly, I found it easier to paint it on my nails than to draw it in Photoshop lol.  Please excuse the wonky diagram!


1.  Outline "M"
2.  Add 3-D effect
3.  Color in "M"
4.  Color in 3-D effect
5.  Paint "TV"

For tips on lettering, please see this other post HERE.

Rainbow Honey polishes cost $10 for 15mL and can be purchased at Rainbow Honey's online store.  China Glaze polishes cost about $6 and can be found at stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty.  Orly polishes cost around $7 and can also be found at Ulta and Sally Beauty.

All products purchased by me.  I am not associated with Taylor Swift/MTV/the VMAs/etc.
