Paisley Rounds

About this design:

Sunday...was a play day. My co-worker is big on fancy fingernails. She gifted me a strip of nail foil to play with - I think she intended me to actually use it...on my nails. :) Instead - I foiled it onto LB's cork rounds, and was amazed that it actually adhered using the nail glue provided with the foil. As they are cork, they are super light weight, as an added bonus!


Cork and gold flecked rounds, gold ear hooks.

    I forgot to mention, I like the way you rotated the design on the second piece so that they aren’t exactly alike.
