My Left Hand
My Right Hand
(my thumbs aren't really 2 different sizes, it's just the angle my son took the picture at)
I decided to go with 10 different designs just to have some fun. Some of the designs were ones I had done in the past, others were variations of designs I saw online. Although I don't know whose designs exactly I used for reference, I want to give thanks to everyone who posts their nail art in blogs, on Facebook, and on Pinterest.
I did polish and paint everything over the SensatioNail gel polish, Chiffon Pink, that I still had on my nails from last week's October BCA manicure. Once I took off the designs with some non acetone polish remover, the gel polish was still in very good shape (it had only been on a week and I usually get 2 to 3 out of it), so I polished my new base colors right over that. I did write down my designs and color choices on paper first. I wanted to make sure I varied my base color choices and I wanted to make sure I planned the easier designs for my right hand as I am right handed and of course, have to paint the right hand with my left. I used dotting tools, striping polish, and a small paint brush to paint my designs. I'm happy with how they came out. Everyone at work loved them. A coworker wanted me to give her a Halloween manicure for her trip to Vegas. Here is how hers turned out:
She loved them and couldn't wait to show her friends and family. She's already thinking of future designs I can do for her for the upcoming holidays. I look forward to sharing those and my own with you.
