Christmas plaid and CUTE DOGGIE

Bwah! I'm alive! Between a final exam and getting into a new routine since I started a new job, I haven't had time to do anything nail-related, and I felt so sad about leaving my blog neglected for so long. But I'm back, my friends!

Since my last sparkly Christmas nails, I wanted MORE, and I couldn't get the idea of plaid out of my head, so I put the two together.
I painted a little Scottie on my accent nail because when I think of plaid, I think of Scotties. It reminds me so much of my cousins' Schnauzer, Pizza. He is the sweetest dog ever, and I haven't seen him since I was last in Hong Kong over four years ago. Miss him so much!

Found a picture of him in plaid - too perfect

All China Glaze polishes this time!

Left to right: China Glaze "I Herd That", "Adventure Red-y", "Velvet Bow", "Kalahari Kiss", "Exotic Encounters"
I started off with two coats of I Herd That as the base. Then I used a thin brush to paint the thick red lines with Adventure Red-y. I painted little squares with Velvet Bow where the thick lines intersected. Then using a really thin striping brush, I painted in the thin lines with Kalahari Kiss first, and finally Exotic Encounters.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post, and a big hello to all you new followers here! Super happy to have you, and thank you for reading!


  1. Love, love, love! The scottie dog is perfect as an accent! Love the plaids and this look so much! If I ever do get the chance to get a pet, I'm definitely getting a scottish terrier!

    1. Thank you so much!! Scottish Terriers are adorable, like cute little bearded men :)

  2. Love the mani and the Scottish Terrier. Merry Christmas.
