Perhaps more of the latter than the former.
First, I'm going to show you my polish collection. It's grown a bit since I first talked about it...
nail pallets so I can see what all I've got on hand. I don't see this as a problem.
3. black and white polish, I use a cheap-o black [just for accents and dots, but I use it ALL THE TIME] and OPI Alpine Snow for my white.
4. Kiss nail stripers, you can grab these at Target or Walmart.
Not pictured: You'll need a dotting tool. You could use a toothpick or a pencil, but I use an embossing tool similar to this one. It's cheap at Hobby Lobby [grab a 40% off coupon] and you can find it in the paper craft area.
**I'm not endorsing any of these products, find what works for you and your budget!**
Let's get this show on the road. Before we start I always trim and file and clean my nails. We all know my nails are super short for non-poking massages. Yours don't have to be this short unless you're a polish addicted massage therapist too. Let's be friends if you are, ok?
The finished product:
link from pinterest is broken. BOO. Idea cred to that person, though.
Hope this was helpful, Haley! (-:
love you people.
