a la Renee

So now that I’ve spent wayyyyyyy too much time viewing Love4Nails youtube videos….. [THANKS RENEE!!!]

I went out and purchased a couple new brushes. 
When I got home, I realized I already had one of the brushes Love4Nails uses in her nail art…. one I NEVER use.  (I have about 21 nail art brushes… and I use dotting tools more than anything. Twenty-one. I probably didn’t need to purchase ANYTHING.)

I also made a few realizations….. I like synthetic brushes better.  Liners are better than spotters.  Acrylic paint is easier for me to control because the consistency doesn’t seem to change.  And I need to practice….. on others.

I wanted some graphic art of my own because I really liked Renee’s:

OPI – “Heart Throb”

And I practiced a little on my crazy sister’s nails.  Yes, crazy.  This crazy girl didn’t even want color on her nails (WHAT?!?!)….. well, with the exception of her thumbs.  And she wanted smiley faces with their tongues sticking out on those.  She LOVED the one I made a mistake on…. because it looks like a smirk expression instead of a smile.  SMH.  I love my sister Smile.
