Don't Be Afraid...

... to try new things. Turns out pretty well sometimes. I wish I could remember where I read how to do this, but I don't ... it didn't turn out quite as marbley as I've seen, kind of more swirly, but I like it. Misa Dirty, Sexy, Money as the base, Misa Toxic Seduction for the embellishment. This was so easy I even did a good job & you get to see my right hand:


To achieve this look, do a couple coats of a base color, then a thick layer of regular (not fast drying) top coat, paint lines of color through that, then drag through the design with a toothpick or something else small - I used the end of my dotting tool because it was right on hand, but I did kind of wish I'd used something a little sharper.

I've got to apologize for being like a week behind on comments, but I hope to have time to answer everything this weekend. I'm also woefully behind posting my books. Not to mention I wanted to show pics of my Helmer with actual polish in the drawers LOL. I promise I'll get to all these things - although I won't promise exactly when =) Thanks for reading.
