Nail Design - Inspired by Katy Perry's Dress from the MTV Video Music Awards

Hello Gorgeous!
That's what I think of all of you beautiful viewers AND this hot-Damn dress that Katy Perry wore at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

Hope you enjoy this tutorial.
Although I didn't show a design on my thumb for this tutorial, I ended up doing one up because I loved this design too much to take it off right away. So instead I whipped up a quick design for my thumb to make the manicure complete.

This design is not too difficult.  It certainly does take time, but only requires a moderate level of skill.  Because the design is a bit abstract, it is easy to hide any mistakes with the glitter or shimmer polish.
Hope you give this design a try!

The video tutorial is after the break.
