These were fun to do. First, I applied two coats of Rimmel London - Ultra Violet, which is really great nail polish. I got this while I was studying abroad in London last summer, and I wish I had gotten more!! I love the wide brush on it, and it could easily be applied with just one coat.
After I let that completely dry, I used some Sally Hansen adhesive guides that came with an old French Manicure Kit. I used two straight edged ones (meant for toes) and create the triangle at the base of my nail. Then I filled the area in with Mattese Elite - Nutty Hat Guy (got this at Ricky's in NYC this past December), and then I peeled off the tape!
