A Paw-some Mani Monday and the Giveaway Winner!

First, I'd like to apologize for the really terrible pun, they're kind of my weakness. Second, it's time to announce the winner of my first ever Giveaway! Congratulations to Laney E. on winning the giveaway, please check your email.

Now onto today's Mani Monday, a cute little paw print nail art. The key to pulling this one off is all about the placement and the size. Do it too big or too straight and you'll look like you're in elementary school all over again. I suggest 2 small paw print per nail, going at an angle across your nails. To keep it really subtle and grown up, do just your ring finger as an accent nail.

The supplies you need are: a base color (a neutral color will keep it grown up), black nail polish, and our dotting tool. You could use a very fine brush instead of a dotting tool if you wanted as well.

Step #1: Paint your nails the base color and let them dry completely before you move onto the next step. As always, patience is your friend when doing nail art.

Step #2: Do 4 little dots of your black polish in a gentle arc, these are your toes. Try to keep them on the smaller end, if they are to big them you foot pad will be huge.

Step #3: Using the bigger end of your dotting tool if you have a bigger end, make an upside down jelly bean shape under your toe dots. Try and make it proportionate to the size of your toe dots, but if it end up bigger you can always make the toe dots bigger. This step can take a little bit of time to get just right so hang in there!

Step #4: Step back and admire how adorable your nails look! Use some clear top coat if you want to prolong the life of your manicure. Now go out there and show those nails off.
