I'm back and an awesome give away

check out the above link for an amazing giveaway.
Well I'm alive lol. They did not get the whole kidney stone though so they left the tube in my back that goes into my kidney. Now I wait for them to call me with info on when I go back in for another try....sigh. I'm moody, uncomfortable and weirded out that I have a tube in me lol. Right now I am walking with a walker and making slow progress. I'm tired alot and can't work because well would you wanna work with a tube sticking out of your back? Yah didn't think so lol. So I dunno if I was better off before nor now lol. I think I liked before at least then no one could see I was abnormal lol.

My first tutorial...dotted wave

First thing you need to do is take a skinny brush and outline how you want the wave to sit on the nail. For this one I used Love Nails by Sinful Colors.

Then you need to fill the rest of the tip in with the same color.

Carefully outline the wave with a white striper I used Kiss white.

Then with your dotting tool lol I used a broken mechanical pencil. I like how it makes dots more than the itty bitty dotting tool I got from Sally's. This was in black from Kiss.

Add your favorite top coat and off you go.
Hope you liked this very simple tutorial.
Send me your try and I'll post it here for you.

Until next time.....
