It takes time but it is a really pretty effect in the end. I really like the super fine strands but this is hard to accomplish without a bit of patience. I decided that I would go a step beyone the basic and attempt a gradient. I used OPI Planks a lot for the base and Revlon Impulsive, Milani Violet Dash and Orly Lollipop. I like the pic above the best. The picture blow shows the rest of the hand but needed more touchups and my cuticles are not in great shape. Too late now....
I wish I had taken more pictures once I cleaned everything up and moisturized but I forgot. Oh well, I will probably be trying this again sometime because I do like the look. Maybe someday on the patio in the summer with a sangria.

Google the words nailskathy and slim lines. She has a you tube tutorial that will show you how to do it. You basically let the polish start to dry until it gets stringy and then drap it over your nail.Delete
