On the thumb I have the portrait from the cover of her book, and on my other nails I free-handed abstract swoopy designs with a stamped Konad butterfly on my ring finger.
I started with Sinful Colors Snow Me White on my thumb and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety Split Lime. I hadn't yet been to her shop, so these are the colors I used instead of Sumbody nail polishes.
Next I painted swoops of gold acrylic paint and accented it with white dots of acrylic paint. I also stamped the butterfly from my new Konad stamping kit that my sister gave me for xmas. I used the green Konad special polish for the butterfly. (Thanks Sista!) You can see how I started painting the portrait on my thumb.
Here is the portrait nearly finished before topcoat. I made some minor adjustments to it before I did topcoat.
Here's my right hand with a similar design, but no portrait. It's pretty difficult to do intricate artwork with my non dominant hand. :)
I was not allowed to take pictures inside of the store, but boy is it cool inside! It smells divine. Think of a more hippie-ish version of a LUSH Cosmetics store. Now they do sell nail polish, however, it is not made here. It is distributed by Sumbody in Sebastopol, CA, so I can call it Sonoma County nail polish, but it is not made here. Deborah chooses the colors and the names for the polishes. Sumbody says that these are 3- and camphor-free polishes. They say these are "as natural as nail polish can be." :)
Here's the three polishes I purchased: Mack the Knife, It's My Party, and Specktacular. Mack the Knife is a gorgeous bronze color, It's My Party is bright pinkish-red with holographic sparkles, and Specktacular looks like a dead on dupe of OPI My Private Jet (the non-holo version). These retail for $9.95 each, and if you buy three you get a bottle of their cuticle oil.
This cuticle oil is AWESOME! It has apricot, safflower, and avocado oils, as well as coconut and shea butters. It has a very slight coconut smell, but that dissipates after about 5 minutes. It applies like an oil, but soaks into the skin very quickly, without leaving hands greasy. The cuticle oil retails for $16.95.
Sumbody is having a warehouse sale at the end of March, which I can't wait to attend! Here is a link for those who will be in the area and want to shop like crazy for some amazing body products.
