Whew - it has been an AMAZING weekend. Went to my first ever women's retreat and it was much different then I thought it would be in such an incredible way.
Anyhow - I know, I know - on to the part about my doing a nail care and art workshop. Before anyone goes ballistic I informed the people signed up that I am not a licensed nail tech. That out of the way I was able to get to the good stuff. As you may remember I tried water marbling once - it was somewhat of a disaster. Turns out the trick is filtered water (finally saw a tutorial that said this). So equipped with a jug (seriously CHEAP), my orange stick, and Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, Essie Sexy Divide, Orly Rock Solid, and a base color of Sally Hansen Emerald Express I got:
It came out so gorgeous! I just love how Rock Solid came out sheer with sparkles to let the base color shine through. Epic!
Onto the Bundle Monster fimo cane sticks. You can see the flower decorations on my accent fingers. They came in the package that Bundle Monster sent me to share at my workshop (one of the gals was nice enough to let me have two slices from one of her sticks to show here).
Basically they are like more detailed rhinestones - it's a whole stick of design and you use an exacto knife (or box cutter if you're like me) to slice off a thin piece and then glue it (using nail glue - not included) to the finished nail. No top coat over.
Just so you know if you do not like rhinestones you will not like these. They are 3D nail art. I've had mine on for a day now and I never snag them and they don't appear affected by water or anything.
All in all I'm super happy I got to try these cause I had no plans to buy them. I do plan to get them now along with rhinestones and dotting tools. Enter "Thank You" in your checkout to receive 15% off your next order!
