Another first time with today's design. I always liked the idea of outlined or framed nails, but I've never tried them because I wasn't sure about the outcome on square shaped nails. I decided to try it anyway and I kind of like it, but they still need some improvement. I used two coats of Essie - Need A Vacation and then started to frame the nails with black acrylic paint and a nail art brush. The first problem is that with this look you will see every mistake. In my opinion, a thinner outline would have looked better, but I wasn't able to do that. The second problem is that I wasn't able to paint it with my weak hand. Duh! And the third problem is that the way I applied the acrylic paint wasn't very smooth and it would have looked better with nail polish (which then again, makes it more difficult to outline the nail). So overall I like the look and my result, but I can do better!
