Although I liked most designs featured here, I'm having issues with the tutorial side of the book. The pictures are way too small (and sometimes the directions are too simple for their own good) to effectively guide someone who is not already skilled in using a nail art brush.

Disclaimer: nothing in this review was meant to be disparaging to the lovely poodle breed. They are quite majestic and intelligent, and one of my favorite breeds. However,...more

Cool awesome book
Aspasia
Full of cute nail designs that are broken down, step-by-step. Makes you think, "Why didn't I think of that?" Now if only I had the time to try all these!
Danielle
So many cute, pretty, simple, and easy designs. Can't wait to try many of these ideas and with help from the book create some of my own.
Trudi
