BACKFILL Halloween canes lil TUTORIAL
I re-did one of my nails today, and took pics for anyone who wants to see. I know everyone always asks for tutorials, so I hope this helps explain it to someone out there! forgive the angles of the pics, it is hard to do on your own!

so... fill nail bed area, cut in, or form your smile line with it...
after cutting in smile, take down existing design as thin as possible

apply black acrylic and place canes in the wet acrylic...

sorry the finished pic isnt as good as the rest... a bonehead move on my part... I forgot to snap finished result while @work, so I took it now!

Great job with that, G!
Thank you G - that answers a whole lotta questions I had about embedding fimos and mylar in acrylic. Now I see they don't all have to fit or lie thin on the free edge. I was stressing too much about that....even though I know you can file them and not file the design off...duh.

Beautiful nail too!
