7 light years and one eternity later, I present you...
Here's the deal: this is the first nail art tutorial I've ever done; I only figured my photo set-up out when I was done taking the pictures and was very unhappy with them and myself until I started editing (what is sequence of tenses, I don't know, it's late). Then I quite liked them. Aaaaaaanywho, if there's anything unclear, or there's a stupid typo (typed in 'shop, didn't proofread), do ask/tell. Please. Sorry. Okay.
NOTE: this technique can be used not only on nails, but basically anywhere: shoes, clothes, starships... Only keep in mind that the waterdrop halo trick won't work on porous surfaces.
WARNING: please, make sure your acrylic paint is non-toxic!
Please, don't re-upload this stuff anywhere. And show me your manis if you decide to try it.
That was for Stef.
