#nailartsep Day 25: Starbucks

The prompt for todays manicure was, of course, Starbucks. I spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out what I was going to do, but finding the perfect green gave me the push I needed in the right direction.

I made my first foray into advanced stamping to make the decals used on this nail. I’m not wild about the technique though. I had problems getting the larger logo decal to sit nicely on my nail. It kept wanting to buckle up is actually lifted from my fingernail at the bottom where I could not get it flush enough. The decal got a little warped and worse for wear. The eyes look like early practice for Halloween manicures!
