Houndstooth

Hello, everybody !

Today's theme in the "Alphabet nail art challenge" is the letter 'H', and I chose to create a Houndstooth manicure. I used the beautiful sky blue #842 Too Cool To Tango from Rimmel 60 Seconds as a base, Kiko #266 Ultramarine Blue for stamping and some striping tape.



I started with a base coat and then applied two coats of Too Cool To Tango on all of my nails. When that dried, I placed two strips of scotch tape on each nail (except for the pinky), so that I'd be left with a triangular shape. I then stamped the houndstooth pattern using a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store and immediately removed the scotch tape. I finally cut some striping tape and outlined the triangle. On the pinky I decided to stamp the pattern on the whole nail. Finally, I sealed the design with Seche Vite top coat.




So... now onto your opinions ! Do you like the theme, the idea, the result, the pictures ?... I'd love to see what you think about this design. Thank you for your time ! ^_^



Please stop by the other girls to see their manicures for this theme !

  5. Super originală tema aleasă, nu mi-a trecut prin cap! :D
    Manichiura e foarte frumoasă, oja de la Rimmel e bestială, de mult o vânez dar niciodată n-o găsesc când ajung la un stand. :( Până la urmă pun eu mâna pe ea, nu mă las! :))
