Step 1: Classic Yellow
First, paint your nail with a light yellow color.
Step 2: Shading
Next, using a darker yellow (I used a Migi Nail art pen in classic yellow), paint two stripes down the nail. I took my lines a little farther than I should. You will want to stop the lines where the silver horizontal line will start. This prevents the lines from creating a weird bump when you paint over it later.
* for a slightly more advanced illusion, fill in the left and right sides with your darker yellow. This will give it a more authentic/realistic look.
Step 3: The Eraser
Paint the tip of your nail with a dusty pink color. You can make the eraser as big or small as you want - it really just depends on what you want to create. And don't worry about it if your line is a bit jagged. You can cover it in the next step.
Step 4: The Metal
Lastly, use a silver polish to create the metal ring on the pencil. Here you can cover up your edge of the pink polish if you need to.
Finish it off with a clear coat and you're ready to study in style!
