I think I paint my nails almost every other day. I've had a basic red on for 4 days and it feels really weird.
This post is just to share my more creative designs. Hopefully it'll give you some ideas or maybe a little nudge to try something new.
The first is a white base (from my MyGlam bag) with two mint colors sponged on top. I wanted the effect to look like a wash, hense two different mints; one more sheer than the other.
The other is a very trendy deign, the herringbone. I painted mine in layers, I prefer that to tape.
Both were first attempts, so they're definitely not perfect. I also try to not over-stress about my nails. The edges will smooth out with a couple of showers and all colors eventually chip. I spend my time trying new designs and playing with color combos, it's much more fun.
