Okay, so to be honest this isn't the design i originally wanted. But i figured that with success comes.. not so successful manicures too. I just don't really like this one at all- although my mom liked it, so she insisted that i should post it. I should probably explain the original concept, and how it didn't quite happen. Originally i wanted to do the black fishnet over clear polish on my nails, and then tape off the V-shape and paint the rest of the nail black. This was all well and good until after i had finished doing one nail and remembered/noticed that i have a big fat white nail bruise on my ring finger. dangnabbit! So then i decided to use the black nail as an accent nail- no problem right? Well, except for how i didn't know what else to do with it after the see-through bit. Overall, it was a night of nail frustration and absolutely no creative energy. Might as well show you the pictures though!
The black is Sinful Colors' Black On Black, the red Sally Hansen's Cardinal, and the silver Wet N' Wild's Metallica. Not awful, but certainly not my best. And one thing i'll never try again is doing a french tip on a rounded nail- inconsistent, uneven, and wobbly lines! Geebus, as soon as my nails grow out again i'm going back to square! At least then it's a little tape and voila, perfect tips! Sometimes, easy is just better.
