My colleague and friend, Terri, got married recently. She had been planning to wear stick on nails with a simple French manicure design, but a chance conversation a couple of days beforehand resulted in me agreeing to try painting the Sheffield Wednesday owl (she's a fan!) on a nail just to see what it would be like...
I didn't know how successful (or not!) it would be, as my freehand skills aren't that great. And while it's one thing to paint cats on my nails for myself, it's quite another to do it for someone else for something as important as a wedding! Anyway, I held the false nail down with a blob of bluetack, used a fine paintbrush and Konad black and white polishes, and produced a vague replica of the owl. And this is the result!
I'm really chuffed that something I made was part of someone's wedding!
Thank you to Terri for allowing me to use the photo - and congratulations!
