    VCH, fourchette, 2 4mm inner labia, horizontal left nipple,
    vertical right nipple, navel, tongue web, frowny, septum, 2 back microdermals, half dinosaur
    Left ear: 8mm lobe, 3 helix, forward helix
    Right ear: 8mm lobe, 6mm lobe, 4mm lobe, tragus


    Tattoos:
    One!


    Wanty:
    Smiley redone, uvula, other half of dinosaur piercing

    I've done this twice. It looked really cool on a couple nails and then the rest were like..eh. And its suuuuuuuuuper messy. I got it alll over my fingers. Even when I tried to do the taping around it.

    Depending on how long your nails are and how many layers you put in the water, it doesnt really use up that much polish when you consider you use at least one drop per nail for each coat, and for me I usually have to put at least one more coat on so the color will be nice.
    Now:
    left ear: lobes x2, tragus, helix, rook
    right ear: lobes x2, upper helix kinda thing
    left nostril, navel, septummmm!

    Later:
    right forward helix or tragus, conch, maybe another lobe
    another helix on left ear
    tongue

    Tattoos:

    It's pretty much the same as French, but the tips are less Tippex white and the rest is pinker. It looks more natural.
