First, I must admit that since I'm rather new to this entire nail polish world I am not very good at nail art. Sure I took a couple of art classes in high school (10 years ago) and I would like to say that I wasn't too bad at it. But for some reason when it comes to painting fingernails and toenails everything ends up looking like it was done while riding a donkey down the Grand Canyon!
Second, I do not own any spiffy nail art tools. No stamping plates, dotting tools, brushes, decals, strips, or filmo slices here! I would definitely jump at any opportunity to try ANY and ALL of the above listed tools, but nails on a budget (yay med. school) sometimes don't allow for such things:)
I am basically left with my meager polish collection and a cheap ($1.99ish) NYC makeup brush kit that I bought to destroy with polish. Up until today, my nail art attempts have been too embarrassing to post (although I have chosen not to spare you of my sad attempts at cool manicures).
Without further ado, my classy, hand-painted lace beauty:
What kind of nail are have you had success with (sans tools)? What other kinds of nail art would you like to see me attempt?
