BASE COAT TOP COAT BUGS

I just finished nail school, and we had to do a final project. I am obsessed and constantly inspired by nature, cabinets of curiosities and the like so I decided to do a bug collection!

I used press on nails, nail polish, paper, thread, beads, rhinestones, caviar beads, pearl cabochons and lots and lots of Swarovski crystals!
