Simples: Nail Art from Muggle to Mastery

I have joined a new group on Facebook lead by Debbie from The Crumpet blog, its called SIMPLES: Nail Art from Muggle to Mastery. Debbie's aim is to teach various nail art techniques and help us master them. I've been dabbling in nail art but it is quite intimidating so I thought this group would be perfect! She shows one technique per week, and right now we just began week two.

For the first week, the tutorial was for the Accent Nail. I've used Smitten Radiant Orchid for three nails, and then Colors by Llarowe Young Turks topped with Elevation Pata Puffer II as the accent nail. I had a lot of fun choosing the colors and experimenting on a nail wheel for the accent nail. I really like how it turned out!

For the second week, which just began Saturday, the tutuoral is skittle nails! Fun!
For mine, I chose a Memorial Day theme to honor the men and women who've died while serving in our country's armed forces. And while choosing my polishes, I took a look back and 'remembered' some of my older polishes. Index to Pinky: Orly Star Spangled, Lynnderella Snow Angel (an original franken from before she sold polish), China Glaze Dorothy Who, and China Glaze OMG.

I've had a lot fun with this group and would love it if you joined us! You do not need to be a blogger or have a social media presence. Just bring yourself and your polish! :)
