Colleen has a new book coming out!
And if that’s not exciting enough, she’s got sloth nails to go with it, and a new Instructable on how to make them yourself! From the tutorial:
Did you know you could easily stamp intricate patterns on your nails using etched metal “nail plates”? Did you know you can make your OWN designs? Did you know it’s illegal to own 10 sloths as pets? Okay, okay it’s illegal to own ONE, but you get the idea.
I’ll walk you through the basics of getting started with nail stamping, give you some suggestions to make your own, and show how to be covered in sloths.(Make sure to look at the end because I am giving away stamp supplies to one lucky person!)
Check out the tutorial on Instructables: Sloth Nails! Make Your Own Custom Nail Art Plates. You should also definitely buy her book.
