      Great lens. You can get some fantastic effects with the different stamps. I am getting better at the stamping, it does take quite a bit of practice.

      These look like fun and I don't think any of us are too old for a statement. My husband used to paint designs on my nails. That was long ago when neither of our hands shook but this is a great idea.

      How fun! I remember spending hours on my nails when cheerleading. Now I enjoy doing my granddaughter's nails. Just think how impressed she would be if I did this to her nails...

      Those are cute & fun for a young girl. Back when I was a teenager the best thing we had was nail polish with glitter in it. I had some blue polish with silver glitter and people would comment how funky my nails were. That was back in the manicure stone age, of course!
