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.
