Breathe4NailArt; Charlotte's Personal Project


Last year my friend introduced me into Nail Art while I was over at her house and I felt inspired and wanted to explore youtube and find some Nail Art tutorials to do on my own nails. When it came to deciding my topic for Personal Project I thought wouldn’t it be cool to create my own Nail Art designs and share them through Youtube. Then I thought what was a realistic goal for this Project and I came up with: To create a series of tutorials teaching people how to paint their nails. Then I asked myself why do I want to do this, what’s the purpose? After a lot of thinking I came up with this reason for why I wouldn't to do this. The Purpose of my goal was so I can learn the importance of communication through video and to improve the quality of my own Nail Art tutorials.

The steps I had to take to achieve this project to a high standard were

  •  Review Nail Art tutorials on Youtube 
  • Interview Experts 
  • Survey the community using SurveyMonkey 
  • Practise my own Nail Art designs 
  • Film my Nail Art designs 
  • Edit the clips 
  • Upload the tutorial on to Youtube


The main skills I learnt during my project were

  • How to edit a clip on iMovie 
  •  Upload a video from iMovie onto Youtube 
  • How to position your body when filming so the camera can’t see you 
  • How to advertise a survey to get a wider range of responses

    1. Hi Emily,

      Thanks I really love your Personal Project and you've done a great job. Your final product is really cool and I know if I was smaller I'd love to wear them. The minimum of views I have on a video is 21 but I have had heaps of views on my channel. I am in the process of editing my British Flag design so you'll be able to see that soon.

  7. Hi Charlotte,

    I think you've put a lot of work into your project and you deserve a great mark. My favourite was the jam one, it's really detailed and pretty. I'd really like to try them some time. What was the hardest design? You should ask if you're allowed to have your nails painted on the day.

    1. Hi Juliette,

      Thanks. The hardest design is the British Flag because it requires such fine detail but I am really pleased because the one I used for the tutorial turned out much better than the practice. I was going to paint my nails but then I'm not going to be here on Friday. I really love your Personal Project and I hope Frodo likes it too because you have spent a lot of time on it.

  9. Hi Charlotte,
    They look so awesome! :) If im to paint my nails, I like doing black and white themes so I do checkered, spots, speckled, stripes and sometimes even cheetah spots.
    Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my design of your class. I realised I got it wrong but Mr Webb told me to carry on with it anyway. I got asked 2 questions. 1 was from Charlotte and she asked: Have you ever used Minecraft? I have used minecraft before, I play it on my tablet everyday, I have the demo version and the real version. :)
    The 2nd was from Juliette and she asked: How long did it take you to make? It didnt take me that long, maybe 30 mins or so. My whole project probably took a week or 2 though.
    Once again, thanks so much for all the comments I got :)

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      Thanks! I like doing black and white Nail Art designs and am in the middle of practicing a black and white design to upload onto my ail Art tutorial. When our class had to make a Medieval Castle on Minecraft it took me at least a good month to complete the final building and I also had millions of trials.

  10. Good job Charlotte - if I ever stop biting my nails long enough for them to grow I will be looking up your tutorials. I am wondering what your next step is with this project - you could have all sorts of tutorials up on line with the skill set you now have - dance tutorials and ICT tutorials...!!!!

    Congratulations!

    1. Hi Lilli,

      Thanks your project is to! I really don't know how long it'd take me because I came up with my Jam design by a picture of Jam and for the Winnie the Pooh I was staring at my Winnie the Pooh soft toy from when I was little.
