Sherlock Inspiration - Konad Nail Design

Yes I, like many others, are greatly anticipating the return of Sherlock Series 3.

I couldn't help myself, and after a slight design hiatus, I was hit with inspiration.  So without further adieu I give you my Sherlock Inspiration.  Enjoy :)

  1. Apply base coat
  2. My choice for a base color is a very sweet light pink from Essie - Angel Food
  3. For the design the combination of Konad Image Plate 83 and China Glaze - Goin' My Way
  4. Apply top coat
  5. Once dry find an deep yellow that will  show up on the design.  My pick for this is China Glaze - Lemon Fizz (I am sure you can all do a better job at a smiley face, make me proud!)
  6. If needed apply another top coat over the smiley face.
