Thanks for all the info on gel vs shellac. Very helpful!

After many years where it was impractical to paint my nails because they'd be ruined very quickly...I'm back to the life of a grad student, where the only danger to my nail polish is boredom XD

So I've been experimenting a bit with techniques.

One of my better ombre attempts:


First try at dotting with a bobby pin:


"Dice", since I'm gaming in a couple of days Smiley


Am planning to adapt the dotting technique slightly to make gears for a steampunk con this weekend. Looking forward to seeing what awesome nails are posted in this thread Cheesy

Those are super cute, and super 80s! Cheesy

The Harry Potter nails are amazing Smiley I love the glittery lightning bolt, and am really impressed with the lines for the Deathly Hallows.
