this time I am back with a manicure. =D
The other day I was looking at my feet and when I saw my house shoes it just struck me.
A new idea was born!
And this is how it's done, step by step. ;)
Start off with your favourite basecoat to protect your natural nails. Then apply the basecolor. I chose "690 forever" by p2.

After giving this a proper amount of time to dry I stamped the tiger print from Cheeky image plate CH2 with essence stampy polish.

I sealed that with a layer of quick drying topcoat (essence), just in case. But I am not done yet! So keep on scrolling... ;)

I let the polish set for a moment before I peeled off the masking tape. Using a dotting tool I applied the black claws on the white polish in the middle of the nail.

And because I am still not so sure what to think of matte topcoats I just used one. ^^
By the way, THIS is why I applied the "just-in-case"-layer of topcoat earlier. The matte topcoat would totally have streaked the stamped images. So it was not such a bad idea after all. :D

For those of you who do not like the matte look here is one with a regular shiny topcoat which is just as nice.

Just in case you are interested these are my house shoes... :D I don't know how I could run around in these and not realize what a cute manicure they'd make.

For your information tigers do have five toes on their front paws so you can almost call the manicure authentical. xD
Usually I don't like animal prints that much because I think they tend look cheap very easily but I think I can make this one exception. I like it. :)
(There was something else I wanted to tell you but I forgot. |: )
See you next time. :)
