I said I'd be back...just *much* later than anticipated.
I get a lot of emails asking how I create my layered fauxnadicures. The only way I could do this would be with a video. And that takes time...seeings how I don't know a thing about working my Vcam ...and there is the uploading stuff. At present, what I can do is snap a pic or two as I go along the phases.
Speaking of...there is always a phase where I think the fauxnadicure will not work. I have taken a picture of such a phase with this particular mani that I'll post at the end. It's really ugly! I started it yesterday thinking that I could finish it before work- and I couldn't. I wore it unfinished and hated the look of it so much, I almost removed it this morning.
I stuck with it, and kept adding stamps, and you know what? I love how it turned out!
My camera picked up way too much detail in these pictures. Pull away from your monitor and view these at a distance.
The dots located at the bottom third of my nails were done with Color Club, Explosive. In order to balance out color, warmth and intensity, I "picked up" one of the colors in the flower decals. Working one nail at a time and at a distance, I applied each dot in the areas that needed them. They are *not* as sheer as pictures show.I'm mentioning this because in the pictures they look like scattered blobs.
