Topic: Nail Art
I finally grew my nails back out to a length that I think looks good with decorative polish.
I grabbed two pastels that I got at the dollar store. The first half, from the nail bed, I did in two layers of soft green. Then I painted one layer of frosted lavender on the tip and, when that was set, I used a makeup sponge to blot on a second layer blending it up into the green.
Third step was to run a thin line of black from nail bed to tip and when that was set, I added an overcoat of clear with a fine multicolored glitter.
The effect looks very summery and graphic - almost metallic.
The way I kept the color off my cuticles and fingers was to border the skin around the whole nail with liquid latex - sold at the beauty supply as glue for hair extensions. No muss - no fuss!
