ABOP Franken - Japanese Eggplant

Application: Smooth
Coats: 2
Topcoat?: Yes.
Source: ABOP Franken (components listed in this post)
Comments: I thought I would have worn this as a mani by now, but there are so many colors to choose from, you know?  Anyway, I decided to spruce this up with a nail art stencil. I have to credit this post by Dollface for the idea of using patterned paper punches for nail art. Fabulous idea! Especially for those of us who are konad/fauxnad -challenged. Contrast color is LA Colors Color Craze - Live. Love this!

  3. @Karen: Dollface's post was actually a video, and I had a heck of a time finding it again to link it! It gave me soooo many ideas though.

    I don't know if I'm ready to do a video tutorial on this, and it's actually not very difficult. I will consider a tutorial of some sort though! Thanks for your comment.
