Orange Dutch Day inspired Ruffian Manicure

Happy Koninginnedag!
(Orange Dutch Day)

In honor of Orange Dutch Day (Koninginnedag) I've been inspired to use the colours from OPI Dutch Collection to do a Ruffian Manicure.

I used OPI's Kiss Me On The Tulips (Pink) and A Roll In The Hague (Orange).
Kiss Me On The Tulips (Pink), A Roll In The Hague (Orange)

I'm in the process of trying to put up my first tutorial on YouTube, but it's proving more difficult then I had thought. Need some better equipment and video editing tools, any suggestions what programs are easiest to use and and easy to obtain.

Mmmm... stroopwaffles. YUM!

My First Blog Ever

HIIII!!! and welcome to my first blog

(this is actually my second attempt, naively deleted the first one, oops)

Hi my name is Karen and I've been thinking of creating my own nail blog website for a while now, so here it is! it's up and running finally :)

I wanted to get involved in the world of the Nail Art community, by posting up my designs and sharing your ideas with me as well.  I don't call myself creative in the least, but like what I do, that is playing with colours and combining designs either by free hand or in most cases using my nail art image plates (i will go in to more details as i progress along my bloggy way).

I want to share with you my colours, my ideas, ideas from others, reviews, nail art stencils, techniques, my nail polish collections, colour swatches, and hopefully (this is a biggie) a nail art tutorial of my own (GASP!).  I have a YouTube account so will eventually link the two up, but got to make a video first.  Baby steps.  I'm still new to this world of blogging and YouTube, so it's going to be a bumpy ride to begin with.  I deleted my first post! 

So please come along with me on my new adventure.  Here's a picture of my nails bare (naked) they're screaming for a nail art make-over! it's been a while.  Hope you follow me and enjoy my blogs.
