    Nail Crazies Unite: Lisa Frank Inspired

    Today, the Nail Crazies Unite want so see a Lisa Frank inspired mani. Honestly, I had to google who Lisa Frank is, and basically, she is an artist using a lot of bright colors, glitter and cute animals. I can do that ;-) Ok, I admit, my mani looks nothing like Lisa Frank's art, but after the third try of getting the background just like I wanted, I lost my nerves and left it the way it was... I us...
