NAIL POLISH YAY. Okay so, since discovering nail blogs and getting excited about doing my own nails, I've been buying more polish. And I've spent more than a hundred dollars on it in the last month! That's crazy. NO MORE. (For now anyway....) But I can have lots of fun with what I already have.
I'd never been much into nail care, but with my nails in the brittle shape they're in, I've been looking to take better care of them. I think the actual problem is runs-in-the-family vitamin D deficiency I have, but in any case. I bought a simple cuticle trimmer. Let me tell you - it's fabulous! I won't bore you with a photo, but after using it, my nails felt clean and healthy, and my fingers felt lighter.
Onto polishes. My good friend Ebs showed me a fun and easy way to spice up the regular ring finger accent. Reverse the colors on the other hand! I honestly had never thought about that before. I tried it here with Revlon Impulsive (purple) and Mischievous (grey-purple).
The second manicure is the simple but popular dandelion flower. A while back I watched a tutorial but I couldn't find it again to share here. ) : Again, no dotting tools or striper, all this is brushstroke. Thoughts? All constructive criticism welcome.
