Picture of Polish Those Nails

Nail Polish Used:
- Salley Hansen - Blue Me Away!
- O.P.I - Por favor
- Charlotte Russe - (no color specified)
- Salley Hansen - Hard as Nails

I use salley hansen's hard as nails as base.
let dry
paint all nails pink except for ring finger
paint this last one with "Blue me away"
let dry

Step 2: Practice(if Needed)

While the nail polish is still drying you can practice your designs

Here i used a simple index card and basically sketched out what i want
on my nails.  you can go bold with fill in or leave it empty. Up to you.

Step 3: Let's Decorate!

Once polish is dry take
take a two-way nail art pen and create the squares/rectangles you practiced.

these pen/bottles have become very popular, though still on the expensive side.
i got this on Charlotte Russe's site a long time ago for 1.99(on sale) So just keep a lookout and you can get great finds.=]


Picture of FINISHED!

Once squares have dried, apply sally hasen again.
clean up if needed
And you're done.
Use any color combo you want
either way you'll still get fab results.=D


excuse the index

This is so cool, at first glance I thought they were circuit boards drawn on which would also be pretty methinks.
