52 Week Challange: Corset Nails!

Ok, so I guess maybe you could consider this cheating, but I didn't actually do these on my nails.. I had an interview and couldn't really have crazy nails, and then Mardis Gras.. I did still do them on nail wheels, (and I did a bunch) so I think that counts.
Tada!+funky camera angle.. I'm really enjoying taking pictures of these wheels! ha
 Boy were these a major pain! I used nail brushes, striping brushes and dotting tools to do them.


 I looked up different corset nails, and decided to try a few different types. I defintely preferd the ones on the left. I used a combination of the 3 new Finger Paints flakie polishes on the three nails on the left, but I can't quite remember what combos I used.
I also used my new Wet n' Wild Megalast in On a Trip for the purple, and I have to say I'm really impressed with the new formulation. It seems to be more opaque, and the brushes are really improved. Also the bottles are much more adorable.
Isn't it perddy? :)

 The one on the left wound up being my favorite of the bunch!

    1. I know what you mean, I'm a major..ehhh procrastinator ha... Personally I found the idea of the 52 Week challenge a lot easier than the 30 day one. I usually do my nails at least once a week, but having to do them everyday, I'd never be able to keep up with that either! It really just helps me with ideas because I was having a major inspiration blockage before I started it.
      Of course you could use my designs! I'd consider it a compliment! ^-^
