This is my nail journey. I have no idea where is is going to take me and what twists and turns I will hit along the way. I have no professional training but have a deep love for nail art. Walk with me through this untouched path in my life. No need for haters here, but am looking forward to all the people that I may meet along the way.
Day five of the black and white challenge is a colored base with something black. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do and how I was going to accomplish this mani and a St. Patricks day mani all in one day. You see, I am working two 15 hour days between yesterday and today and I ALMOST didn't do anything on my nails. I almost slept in between my shifts, but I thought, no, there is NO WAY I can not not have something on my nails for St. Patricks Day! And low and behold I figured out how to kill two birds with one stone! I am actually quite shocked how well these nails turned out because I did this in about half an hour. So to my shock I still had time for a nap! Woot woot. I really wanted to do a bunch of shamrocks on each nail but one I applied the first leaf I realized I didn't have enough time to accomplish this so I just went with one big one on each nail. I am pretty surprised how well my bad hand turned out too.
