I couldn't pick between two pics so I sent them both and asked that they use their best judgement. I would like your constructive criticism, thanks!

You wouldn't wear a toolbelt with that little black dress, so why would you use your jewels as tools?



Your nails are jewels not tools.

:shock: thought I should prob post a closer up for critiquing

just a side note, this is the first time I tried sculpting whites on a real person...lol...I usually cheat and use tips, I usually practiced whites on clothespins.

the tools are made out of mosaic powders

Hi fingernailfixer, what a brilliant interpretation of such a well used quote. It also makes such a difference having professional photos done......really fab.

The only criticism that I can see (although far be it for me to make any critisism at all :oops:) is on the index and middle finger - it looks like the free edges are slightly more rounded than the ring and little finger. However, I'm more than aware that this maybe down to the photo ;)

Anyway, well done for getting up there and giving it a go, I'm sure you'll do really well.

All the best (got my fingers crossed for you)
Adele

sorry gals, I will explain, the mosaics are the colored acrylic powders from creative so yes I created the tools from colored acrylic. I made the tools up ahead of time and then attached them to the nails when the nails were finished, sentimental as I am I wanted to keep the tools...lol

The nail pics are what I submitted to the creative masters mosaic art contest, they held a contest amongst the masters to create art using their colored acrylic powders.contest info: http://creative4pros.com/company/Mosaic rules.html

Here are a couple pics of the mosaic powders:

They are awesome... how long did your model wear them for? And how long did they take you to do?
