Trying to enjoy a romantic evening in a rough economy? I've got an idea for you. Go out and buy some bright colored nail polishes for about three bucks a bottle. Find your special girl and tell her that you'd like to spruce up her top coat of nail polish with some custom designs. Something.. a little special. You don't need to be to elaborate. Try dipping a toothpick in one of your colors du jour and penciling in a little pattern on her nail. Repeat nine more times and voilá! Personalized wearable art work, made just for her.
I'm pretty new at this myself, but we've been having a lot of fun with it. Sue also found a set of professional nail brushes for about thirteen bucks, and we have both kept our eyes peeled for new fun colors, like Pac-man yellow, and bubble gum pink. Here's a gallery of the designs we've tried so far. As you can see the designs get better with practice, but they were all fun. See if you can find "Honu", "Lizards", "Cherries", "French Inmate", "Macintosh", and today's creation... "Daisy".
