What is better than coffee?
There is only one thing that I can think of that is better than coffee and that is a rad, rockin,g robust coffee design on my nails! I have been waiting to share this mani with you guys and I am SO stinking excited. I really hope that you guys like it as much as I do. I wish I could say that I thought of this all on my own but I was inspired once again. I do not know who originally thought of this design but if you know, PLEASE tell me so I can give this rockin chick some freaking credit!
This was way easier to do than I thought. First I did the coffee beans, just by doing some ovals. They didn't have to be perfect because hey, coffee beans aren't perfect. Then I went through and added the lines through the center of the coffee beans. Did the cups and the steam and the words... Do you guys think I should do a tutorial when I do mani's like this? I never know because I generally look at the end result and can just go from there but I know other people like being shown step by step how to do something. Please let me know what you guys want because I am here for you! I want to inspire and be inspired!
