For this challenge we were asked to create a set that had amazing art not only on the front but on the back of the nail as well.

This was a very exciting challenge for me because I have actually never done art work on the underside of the nails.

So I got to my research (like I always do!) and looked up various minx products. I thought the best wrap for me to create would naturally be one that people would love. So I thought about what I love. I love music, lots of different genres appeal to me. But one that I love is rap/hip hop. I love the energy the songs have and the powerful beats. I started to think about how rap has evolved. Which brought me to the OG's of rap. People like Snoop, Dr. Dre, Notorious B.I.G., and 2pac.

I couldn't find a minx wrap online that had a street vibe so I thought "hey maybe others would enjoy this as well " So I put their music on and got into a vibe.

I had so much fun creating this set! I love nails to be fun! And I hope everybody loves them as much as I do! I hope that you can feel the music when you look at the set!
