Anyway here's another attempt at me doing nail art. I've been rushing all week so I have smudges galore, and it's best not to mention the state of my cuticles.
But I did wind up getting a light tent off of E-bay on the cheap. Here's hoping it improves my pictures!
This is the first St. Patrick's mani I did. I used a bunch of Sinful colors, plus China Glaze Cha Cha. It was a gradient, but right after I'd finished it (before photos) I had a finger nail issue. So you get to see the ruins, much to my sadness. I used decals to hide my terri-bad attempt at hand-painting a four-leaf clover. That's what the blob behind the leprechaun is.
Here is the mani I wore yesterday on St. Patrick's day. This is my first attempt at using my light tent and tweaking my camera settings since I don't have any tungsten portable lights.
I used the clover image from the Hello Kitty plate I got for free from the Born Pretty store. I wasn't sure what to do color wise so I wound up stamping the clover on my base color in white, and then using a dotting tool to lightly color in the middle areas on the leaf. And just like that I had the colors of the Irish flag on my nails.
