This design is dedicated to the spur of the moment trip my family decided to go on to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Super fun trip that ended up only being a day because we didn't book a hotel and there was no vacancy on the entire Oregon coast. To do this design I started with a white base and then when it was dry, used a black nail polish brush and made blobs. Use a que tip soaked in nail polish remover to clean the edges and you are good to go.
This is another black and white design that is easy to do. Again start with a white base. Then when it is completely dry use a nail polish pen to make a grid design. Then fill in the appropriate boxes. It is just like doodling on your note books in high school.

This is one of my favorite ways to do my toes. All you do is paint your toes white, which you will probably want to do more than one coat so it wont be streaky. Then when it is totally dry; use scotch tape to make a diagonal line. To get the best results use tape that is cloudy in appearance and not completely clear. The clear stuff seems to stick more. Then just paint the top black. I peel the tape away when the black is still wet. Then you are left with a nice diagonal.
Ralph and I spent a few hours playing poker. Our lil man kept helping Ralph by giving him extra cards he would swipe. I used a white nail polish and a nail polish black pens. Those are amazing you can do anything with them. I think everyone should have a black and a white one.
This design was inspired by playing with my one year old on a sunny day. He discovered that a cd he was playing with made a rainbow when it hit the sun light. I first tried to get the lines straight using scotch tape but it was taking too long so I free handed the stripes using a skinny brush nail polish that I got at the dollar store. I reused the brush by cleaning it each color with nail polish remover.
