Rainbow Accent Nail

This manicure started with a couple designs I created on a wheel, here is one of them.  Since I have exactly ZERO limited drawing skills, my nail art tool of choice is my set of Mash 5×2 tool set.  I think these tools pack a good bang for the buck.  It’s amazing to see what can be done with just dots, seriously.  When looking for images/ideas of things to do with them I was amazed by the creativity and variety of designs that can be created with these simple tools.

My nails are a bit shorter than the nails on the wheel, so I adjusted the design a bit.

I would have done the entire manicure with these dots (and should have made the base red dot smaller), but I was short on time as that day I was heading to a birthday dinner at Shady Maple Smorgasbord and didn’t leave enough time for my nails.  I know, I know <smacking own hand>.  I will try and not let it happen again.  But it’s Shady Maple!  A cornucopia of PA Dutch delights mixed in with just about every other mouth-wateringly delicious thing you can think of.  And all you can eat of them all!  I wasn’t thinking clearly.

Thanks for reading – I hope you all are having a great week!
