As it happens there was a miss communication and I now have a coat of Gel (similar to acrylic) on my own nails (no tips)! So much for that experiment. As all you crafters out there know we need to be able to pick up small gems and to peel the back off the double-sided tape and you need normal thickness nails to accomplish this (or I do anyway). Actually what I have at the moment is working ok because it is a thin coat on my own nails but I am still going to try the Gellish when I have had my moneys worth from this manicure.
I have to say as a crafter and gardener and houseworker I am not very kind to either my nails or my hands for that matter. So why am I blogging about this at all...now I finally get to the point of this post.
This is an on-line poll of sorts and I would value your opinion. When watching a crafting video tutorial do you care if the nails of the tutor are perfectly manicured or if they look like they have been dragged through a Distress Ink pad backwards? :-) Please leave me your views by way of a comment I would really appreciate it.
This poll gives a really big clue about what I will be up to over the coming months. I am about to pop next door to put a second coat of paint on to the walls of what will become my tutorial studio giving you an even bigger clue!
