In the meantime, I'm just puttering around in the AC and trying to keep boredom & housework from doing me in. (And squeezing in a nail design every couple of weeks)
Robin's Tutorial, if you'd like to see the pro on how it's accomplished
Giraffe print for my bff, which she loved - even though even after wearing them for a few days she really wasn't accustomed to having that much yellow on her fingertips. She's really more of a plain old same old French manicure type girl. We've come a long way!
And for one fun & summery look I went crazy. Combination of Konad stamping with washes of neon polish across to make the design in shimmery, summery neons. And even put it on video, for your viewing pleasure!
... I'm still working on perfecting this part, really. This video is a bit crooked. To the tune of 90 degrees off. Oh, well. I'll learn ;)
