Top: Left hand. The "cracked" look came about after seeing an Instavid on it.
Here are the steps:
1) Put on your base color (I used blue)
2) In a cup of water, add a few drops of a different color polish (I used pink)
3) Add a few spritz of hair spray
4) Submerge your nail
5) With a toothpick, gather all the excess polish
6) Lift your finger
Bottom: Right hand. I bought a nail tool kit on Amazon for $1.57 with free shipping. The caveat is that it took 17 - 28 days to arrive from Hong Kong. Very worth the wait! My design is flowers...pretty messy but this was my first time using a detailed brush. I definitely need to practice!
