Must Love Dogs

Dog Nail Art

Just a cute simple mani today.  I painted these nails because my parent's dog (whose Instagram account I run @gracie_the_boxerpit), was tagged to do a paw picture for #purinalendapaw.  You post a pic holding your pet's paw with that hashtag, and Purina will donate a bowl of food to a shelter. 

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Forever 21 - Apricot
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Black Noir
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-424 (paw prints)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-H17 (kissing dogs)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Black heart rhinestones

The more peachy color in the main pic above is how the polish really looks.  In my pictorials, the lighting made the color look more orange.  As I mentioned before, I paint my nails at night, so the lightbox lighting distorts the colors a little.  I need to buy new lamps.  To create this look:
  1. Apply an apricot base color.

  2. Use black stamping polish to stamp the paw prints (BM-424) on the ring finger and the kissing dogs (BM-H17) on the middle finger.

  3. Add a black rhinestone heart to the base of the pinky and index finger.

 Here's the pic I posted for the #purinalendapaw campaign.  I wish I could have painted Gracie's nails too, but she hates the smell of nail polish.
