Classy not Trashy

My job has decided recently that they want to make  tutorial videos to help customers that have issues with our website, instead of fixing the actual website. It was suggested that I be in the video.

I wanted to do keyboard nails, but it looked one dimensional and just looked like I had letters on my nails, I really wanted it to have more depth. I scratched that idea and went for something a little more classier. What is  more classy than black and white?  I noticed some black gems that I know I was not going to use much and decided to do a border mani with them. ( What is with me and the border mani’s lately?)

Day 7- Pumpkins

For todays challenge I used a base coat of Ruby Kisses HD Spicy Apricot.

Then I used Nailene perfect tips ” French tip polish guide to make half moons on the bottom of my nail, its like a sticker that helps border off the nail so you do not mess up your design. I used NYX black for the half moons. I then made a pumpkin face using black nail gems and added a green holographic flower to use as the stem at the top of the nail.

This was the 2nd nail art that I tried. I bought the Konad nail plates and stamper set. It did not turn out so well but i thought it was pretty cool. After doing this I swore off the stamps, but I have gotten better .I used black gems on the underside of my nails
