Today's post was inspired by my best friend. A while back I did a post and dedicated it to one of my girlfriends (day 160 - black bird fly) and since then I have been meaning to dedicate posts to my other girlfriends just to be fare. The friend I had in mind while doing today's design loves animal prints, especially tiger. Since I have painted a few animal print designs already I decided to do something completely different.
I did this post on my left hand as usual, but after completing the design I realized that it would look even better on pointed nails, so I quickly slapped on some tips on my right hand and did it all over again. This design was done using printed foil, it's been around forever but I just discovered it and it's my newest obsession. the technique I use to apply the foil to the nail is without any foil adhesive, instead I wiped the back of the foil strip with acetone and then pressed it into nail polish. It was a little tricky applying the tiger print because the lines were getting broken up, it would have been much easier with a leopard print. When the foil was all applied I was left with a rough edge around the nail so I decided to outline the nail using a gold glitter. I think the final outcome looks pretty sick, this design is a little bit crazy for my friend but I'm sure she sill enjoy it.
