Well, I'm just not sure about this. I started with a grey base.....fail. Switched to white (Barry M matt white, of course!) and used my nail art pens to draw on the lines. The fact that there was not a regular colour scheme actually hurt - I struggle with abstract, I'm all about the order! I got a few compliments, but I just don't know.......hmmmmm. We'll see how long it stays on.
