{Take 2} Guest Poster: The Dalai Lama’s Nails + Abstract Freehand Nails

Oh man, I  feel SO bad! I had no idea that the pictures in the original post I shared while I was off on my honeymoon didn’t work! Clearly I still have to work on my technical repertoire. I really wanted you all to enjoy more of the fabulous works of the lovely Hannah from thedalailamasnails.com. Since I THINK I’ve got things sorted out, here goes the post again:

Hi there! I’m Hannah from thedalailamasnails.com. I’m so excited and honored to be guest posting here today – and so excited for the Sparkle Queen’s upcoming wedding! Congrats, girl, and enjoy every minute! 


Like the Sparkle Queen, I love all things glittery. But for today’s look, I decided to go a different route. For this manicure, I only used one polish! That is basically unheard of for me – but I knew I wanted to do a swirly, abstract design over my naked nails, so I decided to keep it simple. I used Sally Hansen Black Out and a very fine detailing brush (this one, I bought it on Amazon for $4.79) to draw in the swirls and shapes, pretty much just doodling over a base coat! I really love how this turned out, and it was a good opportunity to practice my line-work. I sealed it all in a with a thick layer of top coat.

Thanks for having me here! 

From The Sparkle Queen:
