The Nail Files: Pinterest Strikes Again


The Nail Files


This week, I was inspired by this:

Rite Stripe's Teal Sparkle and Pink Sparkle, Sally Hansen Xtreme in White On, Finger Paints Black Expressionism, China Glaze Turned up Turquoise, and Essie Bermuda Shorts.



Two coats of White On and two coats of Turned up Turquoise and Bermuda Shorts on the edges. I used the brush end of my dotting tool to sweep the border with Black Expressionism. It was my first time using the brush and I was pleasantly surprised to find that its 90-degree angle really did make things easier! 



 But because I am who I am, I couldn't handle the lack of sparkles. Luckily I had some that matched (haha, "luck" - more like "thanks to my obsessive collecting," but whatever).



Thanks to Tara and Vicki for hosting!
