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

Polishes:
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!
