This took SOO long, and I'm not too thrilled with them.  But, each hand took like... an hour!  So I wasn't just going to start over. Anyway, I really like the design of my book bag, so I thought I'd try to duplicate it:



Here's the bag:



C&C welcome.  Thanx for looking!!


Here are the steps:
Start with a clean, filed nail. Add base coat:


Using a toothpick, draw a vertical line:


Paint white at 90 degrees to the first line:


With your toothpick, keep adding colorful lines:


Using a black liner, start outlining your colors:


Outline your white area:


And keep on trucking between your colors:


Add a couple layers of top coat and you're done!!  If you try this, post and let me see! I'd love to see how you interpret it!

They look great!

I always wonder being either right handed or left handed, how does one manage to do the other hand?
