Day 26: Pattern (Houndstooth)

I’ve never liked the houndstooth pattern. It is something my mother loves, so clearly, I must think that it is old-lady-like and unflattering. My mind was slowly changed by numerous examples of houndstooth nail art, so I decided I had to give it a try.


I always love paring red and black, and this gave me a chance to try a full mani with Siren by Pure Ice. Although I really like the shade of bright red, unfortunately, the mani started chipping (despite base and top coat) within one day. :-/


That being said, this stamp (bundle monster 322) is amazing! One of the cleanest stamps I’ve ever done. I decided to jazz it up a bit by adding red glequins from the Born Pretty Store. Success. This looks awesome 😀



  • Red: Pure Ice – Siren
  • Black: Julie G – Black Sheep
  • Stamp: Bundle Monster – 322


I need to play more with this stamp! And I really like the added dimension of the gelquins. If you want something similar, I highly recommend the Born Pretty Store, and don’t forget to use my 10% off code, LY5X31!


Time to go see what the other ladies prepared for Pattern day…
