Nail Update

I'm still loving the fun nail thing, though still quite a novice! Here's what I've been up to:

I bought my first nail art tool that has a brush on one side and a dotting tool on the other. It is surprisingly hard to use. :(

I dotted over my then existing polish (sorry for the wrinkled fingers; I had just gotten out of a really long shower!)

China Glaze in Shocking Pink and Turned Up

Here's my first attempt at free-handing something other than french tips. I used the built-in brushes for the angles and the dotting tool for the dots.

Zoya Yummy, Zoya Demi & Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Rockstar

I went to an awesome tea and wanted to have quasi-themed nails. Here's what I spent 5 minutes doing as I rushed out the door. (The hostess made these amazing custom tea bags with our names on giant tags and a message on the back. So cute!)

[Horribly streaky] NYC French Tip White stamped with Essie A List, Konad m14 & m55

I got bored that night and added some more embellishments
Konad m3 stamped with various colors

That's it for now. I'm going to a late 50s/early 60s party this weekend and will be doing my nails to match my dress! They won't be so authentic, but oh well. haha. Until then, au revoir!
