My cuticles are still bad but they're getting better. Luckily, before they went downhill I managed to get my claws on the new Barry M nail art pens. I love them. They're so easy to use and they're easily the best nail art pen I've found. I created this Aztec design using them (and some Barry M Greenberry) in half the time it would have taken me to do them with nail varnish and a small brush.
I still need to work on my freehand skills. Some of my lines are a bit wibbly but overall I'm really impressed and loads of people were commenting on them in work.
