ASBMF Challenge #11-Eggs and Chicks

I figured why not take it literally?  Maybe not the chicks.  I was a vegetarian for several years so I don't want to harm any animals but the egg part....maybe.  I originally wanted to coat several nails in an actual egg shell but those shells are really curved, even when you crack them.  They just don't lie flat at all.  I had to settle for small pieces of cracked egg shell.  That's right, real egg shells. 

I have used flocking before but found a different brand by Martha Stewart that has glitter mixed in.  Love glitter as many of you already know.  Really makes it look very chick-like.  And, very fluffy.


And, because I know you are all wondering since you plan on trying this out on your own nails, the shells do stay fixed firmly using only polish to adhere.  No top coat, that would only detract from the beauty of the natural shell.



This challenge was created by the lovely Hannah from Polished Prisms. You can check out the group's facebook page to see all the designs in one spot but please take the time to see what the other ladies have done along with their blogs here also...........
