Want to feel like a kid again? Doodle on your fingers...

These days more and more schools are getting interactive boards to replace the old blackboards, many of which had already been replaced by green boards because they where supposedly easier on the eyes. As a child I can still remember how I loved it when the teacher would use colors to grab our attention. Math and French could be soooo boring! Oh and how important we felt when we where asked to either clean the blackboard or go to the "special machine" to vacuum the chalk dust of the board brushes. That thing was loud and vibrated like crazy. For a kid, sooo much fun!

Want to feel like a kid again?

Could this be the reason why I love this kit! All the possibilities it offers, for a big kid it could be such a kick!

Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure...

Love the look!

Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure, Sephora, $25.00

The kit includes a Matte Top Coat, Chalkboard Paint Pot and four Chalk Pens in Teachers Pet (blue), Satchel (white), Jump Rope (pink) and Recess (yellow). It even includes a chart of fun doodles you can replicate. Of course you don't need a "kit" to create the look but this is quite convenient and I do find the price  reasonable.

As much as I love the idea I would not wear it myself, it would look a little childish on me. Well ok maybe on one nail but what would be fun is if my daughter plays with this look. I can still see her when she was little, with her bucket of colored chalks, drawing on the sidewalk next to our yard. To have her busy for a full hour was quite a feat and she was proud to show us her artwork once done. More often than not whe drew horses since her favorite character was Spirit! Those are great memories! Really, who needs video games?

Great creative summer fun! These are Crayola's Sidewalk Chalks 
but you can get some nice ones even at the dollar store. 

Is the Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure a look you would go for?
