Day 24: Book (3 Little Pigs)

I really struggled to pick an appropriate book for today’s challenge! I initially wanted to do Dune, but I didn’t have enough time to devote to making that mani as beautiful as it deserves to be. Then it occurred to me…I had been wanting to do pig nails for a while, and what better book than the Three Little Pigs?

I started off with a pale pink shimmer jelly polish, Calla Lilly by Revlon. This is two coats. This polish is far from opaque, which I usually hate. However, I wanted a mostly nude shimmer and I knew I would be covering my tips with color anyway. This polish would be perfect for a traditional french!

I then painted on three pigs, a wolf (which looks more like a confused puppy), and the final house (made of brick).

This took surprisingly little time and I’m really pleased without everything came out! Especially the house. I somehow managed tiny tiny lines 😀

Even if my wolf does look more like a puppy, I’m ok with it. I think you get the idea!
