Trying something new
My friend Patience Salgado (www.kindnessgirl.com) got me hooked on Pinterest. I don’t know whether to bless or curse her! It appeals to me on so many levels: it’s very visual; there are so many great ideas shared; there are lots of pretty things at which to look; and you can organize and compartmentalize all your fabulous finds.
Anyway, manicures are a popular thing to pin; and, I got the idea for this one from a technique I came across. Clearly, I need a whole lot more practice. But, I tried something new. And, despite my less-than-perfect execution, my manicure garnered a bunch of attention. I guess I’ll have to keep practicing. . . .
