Share the Love Wrap up

25 Nov

Good morning and happy Friday!  Are you Black Fridayers?  I’m not.  I would rather pay more money than camp out in the cold so I can fight crowds for door busters.  No thanks.  So today marks the end of Share the Love.  I’m really happy I joined this small group of ladies in this experience.  Again, thank you Amanda for putting this together.

To finish off the week I was trying to think of something fantabulous, but I couldn’t get this mani out of my head.  I have been wanting to try thumb print nails for a while now.  I’ve played around with it different ways to do this, but failed a few times.  I just wasn’t getting the result I wanted.  I don’t know why I wanted to try this so badly, but I just kept coming back to it.  After painting my thumb and stamping it on a piece of paper about 30 times, I found the formula that worked best.

Despite finding the best method, I still redid each nail about 5 times.  I’m not sure what I think about the results.  Can you tell it’s a finger print?  My base color was Orly Green Apple and I used Sally Hansen Black Out for the stamping.

I did think of another possible way to do it that I might try and see if I can get better results.  If I figure out a way to get good results without redoing each nail a bunch of times, I’ll post a how-to.

They’re kinda CSI.  Do you think you would ever try thumb print nails?

    AWESOME! I love this idea but I don’t think I’d be able to do it properly myself. I’ll just admire your mani instead haha.

      Thanks for the kind words ladies! You wouldn’t believe the amount of trial and error that went in to this. Who would’ve imagined it was going to be so tricky.

      I will hopefully have the tutorial ready for Friday. It’s just not an exact science to get that detailed print.
