Now, if there's any color I usually wouldn't pick for my nails, it's definitely red. It might be weird, because red is considered as maybe the most common nail color ever, but for some reason, I've always had weird feelings about it.
Normally I like to create my own desings for my nails, but the moment I saw these nails Sakurina had few months back, I knew I had to try to copy the design! I've been looking for an excuse to use houndstooth print and this seemed like a perfect opportunity. Instead of stamping, I used water decals for the print. Oh, and btw! The parts with the print are transparent!
I made these nails for December, because the colour combo was christmassy but not too much and I would be able to wear them in the beginning of January as well. I'm not a big fan of theme nails, so any kind of nails with xmas trees, santa clauses or candy canes were a big no-no, haha.
Unlike in the original, I only made 2 of the overly blinged nails (because I was lazy and I thought it looked better that way. Less was more in this case I think). I will probably be cursing my life and nails to the deepest depths of Hell when it's time to remove the designs from those two nails, but I'd rather not think about that yet, lol.
