This blog will follow one year of home-manicures; hopefully each one will be crazier and cooler than the last.

Week 7: Chinese Characters (Sort Of)
T-minust 47 minutes until "next week." So this week was my terribly botched attempt at chinese characters. I googled and tried to recreate the symbols for luck, strength, happiness, courage, spirit, peace, beauty, patience, love, and family. For my base coat I used a red crackle polish-which I don't think I like much- and then used gold to paint the characters on top. I was hoping that the crackle would give the design a distressed look but from far away my nails just look red and up close they look bloody. I really hope that the characters are at least mutilated enough that they don't say anything offensive. Perhaps things will work out better next week.
