Guest Post from Did My Nails

This is so awesome - I'm just gonna get right to it!

Supposedly this lady here "claims" that she isn't too great with nail art. Say what. Tell me what you think!

Hello! My name is Elizabeth, from Did My Nails, and I'm very happy to be able to pitch in while Anna's wayward nail is in recovery. I asked if there was anything in particular she wanted me to do for this post, but her only specification was, "Surprise me!" So with free rein and in the mood to try something new, I chose Anna's adorable footprint logo as the basis for some black-and-white nail art.

 My base colours were Nfu Oh 132 (black), OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (near-white), and Zoya Dove (lt grey). There's also China Glaze Recycle (med grey) on the thumb and middle fingers. Most of the details were done with dotting tools, except for the index, which is just some narrow swipes with a striper (Orly Crisp White). And the glitter on my pinky is Ninja Polish Sticks 'n Stones, which Anna thoroughly rocked my world by sending me in a recent swap. I squeaked like a little girl when I unwrapped it. There may also have been a dance of glee. So I definitely wanted to incorporate it, along with the little footprints.

I had so much fun doing these nails! I do keep thinking I managed to dot too many toes, but they seem to add up to ten. ^_^

Say what? Isn't that little foot print on her nail the cutest thing ever? I really almost died. I truly love this so much! This just blew me out of the water!

Elizabeth, thank you so much for guest posting for me! I love your nail art, such a perfectionist! So crisp and clean looking with not a single smudge or smear!

On the other hand, my nails are growing so very slow. Sad panda.

Isn't Elizabeth's nail art fabulous?

  4. I am so, so happy you like it, Anna!! Sincerely, thank you so much--you and everyone who's commented--for all the kind words. I really do appreciate them so much.

    Thanks for having me over! (^_^)
