Herringbone Nails

11 Jun

When I saw THIS post from The Polish Squirrel, I knew I wanted to try it.  I love the way they turned out!

This design was easy, but a bit time consuming just because there are so many little lines.  My base color is Sinful Colors Mint Apple; a minty, aqua sort of color with a slight shimmer.  I was originally planning to do the herringbone design with Sally Hansen White On.  I did it on my thumb and decided I didn’t like it.  It was too stark.  I switched to Julep Annette, a light grey creme.

If I’m ever unsure about a color or design, I start with my thumb.  That way if I screw up or don’t like it, it’s not really in my photographs.

I love this herringbone design and have The Polish Squirrel to thank for the inspiration.
