Time Period Challenge- Ancient Egypt (Mar 13)

Time Period Challenge
Ancient Egypt
I am so excited to be taking part in my first nail art challenge ... so here it goes,hope it works and hope you guys like it :)

I realised after I posted this that the Inlinkz button is in the top corner, Which I kinda like but I know its not the done thing, anyway, if anyone knows how to sort this then please let me know in the comments :)

I painted my nails with a neutral 17 nail polish, then went over it lightly with W7 "Midnight".
Then again created pyramids with the 17 colour.
I drew on the hieroglyphics's with a black gel pen (I've been wanting to try this technique for ages and this seemed the perfect opportunity), then I went over any missing bits with a Rio nail art pen.
The letters spell out my name; Laura, and my fiances' name , Lewis.

 I enjoyed using gel pens for nail art although, I would like to share that it is a lot harder than I expected, the actual nail art was easier than I thought (Obviously easier than nail polish), even though I have picked a pretty difficult design. However what is tricky is that the gel smudges everywhere, then it smudged more when I applied a top coat. So my pictures aren't best :(
So I will keep practising this :)

PS. Don't forget to look at everyone elses posts :)
