Yes they do! If I remember when I get home I'll post pics, they're actually of the sphinx moths we discovered but the honeysuckle is in there too.

We had a pink honeysuckle in FL and although you can't see any of the blooms in this picture here is the monster right before a haircut.

Zoya Laney (my other free one), 3 coats. Needle marble on the ring finger with Zoya Noel. Laney is a great silver, but you can still see some brush strokes.

ETA: Essie Good to Go is working great over my Zoyas. Thank you to who ever suggested it.

I have a sliver striper and black and white striper, but no pink right now. I may have to pick one up and try that. I love it! I'm partial to colored French manis. Now I'm wondering if I would like to do it with a brighter pink as the base and just use black, white, and silver stripes. Hmm...

It's from 2009. The bush was huge but it's in a new location now and it's been pretty unhappy. I had no problem with it's old location. Mmmmhmmm.

Very cute, RCC! I tried it last night and it was a mess. I mislaid my little brush, so I tried to make it work with a toothpick...ugh!

I guess my V day nails got overlooked -- see post #2052 above.
It probably got overlooked since it was an attachment.



Ack, it's huge! and I can see my ragged cuticles. Eek!

I went to the 100 yen shop tonight looking for some toddler scissors. Walked out with some nail art supplies. From top to bottom, nail polish thinner (just in case), dotting tool which makes tiny dots, small nail art brushes and some heart/star/glitter combo that my daughter picked. I also got some makeup sponges to try gradient. I also wanted to look for a caddy to put my polish and other stuff in but my child was getting antsy so I will leave that for another day.

Hey ladies! Stumbled upon another trick courtesy of my little boy! When attempting to paint straight lines place the brush on your nail and slowly pull your hand back towards your body. I got much straighter lines than trying to stabilize my hand enough to paint. HTH

Pedaheh, thanks for the brush link.

Banjo, those honeysuckle are pretty. I like how they look yellow on the inside too.

CL, I like the dusty looking glitter you used for your design.

Nyn, this Luxurious nails vid is similar to the CP one, but with no stripes. It might work for you until you find your brush. I like her work, though her accent took some getting used to. It's really strong!

ETA. It'd be even closer if you skip the line of dots and put a pink heart in the red section.

That is really cute. I had no trouble with her accent; who knew living in Texas for almost 20 years would be good for something? LOL

Lol!

She'd probably have a hard time understanding Pittburghese with all of its quirks. It can sound odd.
