My First Attempt at Houndstooth!!


I have a really quick post to share with you because I'm super excited that I actually did it, but I have to run to a rehearsal... agagagagaaahh!!

 Colors Used: Painted Polish - Holo Hangover, China Glaze - One Track Mind, Sally Hansen - White On, Acrylic Paints

 Ok so for a quick summation of this mani, I applied 2 coats each of my creme bases (CG and SH).  I then sponged on the glittery Holo Hangover (a technique I plan to go in depth with in a later post!).  Then I poured over multiple houndstooth tutorials I found through Google and with a detail brush and scrylic paint, I painted my design :)

 Whew, that was A LOT of work!

I hope you all have been having a fabulous week :)  I gotta run!

Until next time!

  1. They turned out amazing. I thought they were stamped on at first too.

  2. Wow.. I thought these were stamped nails, just like Lisa N. did! They are so cool! I also love the index and middle finger, they suit the design you did.

  3. For a first attempt you did an amazing job! I like how the elements go so well together in this manicure :)
