Pick 'N' Mix Challenge: Houndstooth & Red, Orange, Yellow

Monday 23 February 2015

Evening sweeties!
I can't believe we're in the last week of February already, where the hell does the time go?! I'll be happy to see March though, I'll be turning 30 at the end of it and I'm super happy about that! I think I've been looking forward to this since I was 21 LOL (I'll go more into that as the time approaches)... Anyhoo back to the nails, I combined looks again this week, it's just my favourite way to approach this challenge. This was a 'make it up as you go along' job...


To kick off, two coats of the red and orange and three of the yellow. Once dry it was time to tape off and apply two coats of the white. Next I stamped the houndstooth pattern in black, removed the tape swiftly and finished with topcoat. I love how the thin black polish stamped with a rippled texture!

Considering I had no idea what design I was going for when I started, I'm pretty happy with how this mani turned out! I usually have to put at least some planning into a design before I go for it for it to turn out well hahaha!
