Nail art has taken me to some very interesting places and allowed me to meet interesting people, one of who is the lovely Holly, a comic book artist who does School Bites, and is married to Jim Balent of Broadsword Comics. As luck would have it, I made a couple sets of nails for Holly- one was old-school Star Wars, and the other was a KISS-themed set. She wore them at ComicCon recently and SHE SHOWED THEM TO GENE SIMMONS. He liked them! I’m dying.
By the way, the lower right hand nail is Gene Simmons’ famous tongue, for those of you who might be wondering.
It’s my first known celebrity nail encounter and I’m excited.
Nail school rolls on, I’ve done basic gels and am now getting into the gel art. I do have a few tips to share with you, and I’ll do a gel tutorial, except I do have to say they are really tricky to do at home or on yourself, especially with the DIY kits. I’m keeping my gel nails on as I experiment with the wear and durability. Hint: Sunscreen can make gel nails very angry, and they’re not fond of nail polish remover, either, even the non-acetone kind.
