C is for... Cards!

     It's Wednesday again and that means that it is time for another mani in the ABC's of  Nail's Challenge that we are doing in the Facebook group, Llama Nails.  Today's letter is C.  It didn't take me long to decide that I wanted to do cards.  Which is good, because the artwork took forever.  Especially the spades.  This is why I use acrylic paint when I do intense nail art.    If you apply a topcoat to your base color you can then go hog wild with acrylic.  If you screw up you can just dab a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and it will come right off!  Thank you Robin Moses!  (AKA Nail God!)  I used a dotting tool for the clubs and hearts, and a very tiny, tiny brush to do the spades, numbers, and diamonds.

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
